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.
