In Loving Memory of Scott “Scotty” Gordon Charity
April 27, 1965 – April 13, 2021

It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we announce the passing of Scott Gordon Charity on April 13, 2021, at the age of 55 with the love of his life Karen by his side. Scotty is survived by his parents Gord and Dawn and his brothers Stuart (Teresa) and Stephen (Stacey). He will be greatly missed by his niece, nephews, family, friends & neighbours.

Scotty was the third generation of his family to live and work on Crystal Lake. One of his proudest life moments was building the beautiful home on the Lake that he and Karen shared together. After hanging up his butcher’s apron, Scotty started his own business, “Knot for Charity Carpentry”. He provided skilled carpentry work to homeowners and cottagers as well as building and installing decks, docks, painting and staining. Scotty was known for his attention to detail and perfection in every job that he did, regardless of the size of the job.

Scotty was an avid outdoorsman, who loved to snowmobile, fish, swim and cruise Crystal Lake in his boat “Scott Free”. He was easily recognized wherever he went wearing his trademark bandanna and dark sunglasses. Scotty enjoyed to cook and experiment with new recipes and couldn’t go to bed without a bowl of ice cream. He loved listening to music, especially his favourite band Lynyrd Skynyrd, and watching wrestling matches, outdoor related or nature type shows on TV. Scotty was also a huge fan of the Leafs and the Blue Jays.

In keeping with Scotty’s wishes, cremation has taken place and due to the Covid-19 restrictions, a celebration of his life will be held at a later date.

We wish to thank the Doctors, Nurses and staff at both, the Sunnybrook Odette Cancer Centre and the Peterborough Hospice as well as the many friends and family members who provided support, care and comfort to both Scotty and Karen over the past several years.

For those who wish, memorial donations in Scotty’s name can be made to the Gord Downie Fund for Brain Cancer Research at the Sunnybrook Hospital or the Peterborough Hospice or can be arranged through the Gordon A. Monk Funeral Home Ltd., P.O. Box 427, Minden K0M 2K0

We met Scott 30 years ago cruising around CL and have so many fond memories of our fun times over beer, a good steak and of course laughter! Scott always had a good story to share, mostly of his adventures, and a true waterski show off. Being in Clear Bay, we always could hear and recognize his boat coming long before we saw him...but then we’d see the big wave, sunglasses on and a huge smile. Crystal Lake has lost a bright light. Hug each other tight during this difficult time.

Sincerest sympathies,,
Meredith (Rhodes) and Jeff Seabrook

Karen & Scott's Family,
My sincere condolences to you all at this very difficult time. Reading the stories shared by those close to Scott, brings back many memories for me. I particularly remember him tracking the mileage on his sled on the wall going into the cottage, water crossings late in the season and his love for boating and cooking. He loved to have fun and spend time with friends. RIP, Scott. Take care, Karen.
