Christopher Robin Scott (1931-2007)

Dr. Christopher Robin Scott November 3, 1931 June 7, 2007 Dr. Christopher Scott passed away suddenly on June 7, 2007 at Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon. Chris was born in London, England and immigrated to Canada in 1962 with his wife and two young children. He practised medicine in Saskatchewan for over twentyfive years, and was well-loved and respected by his patients for his compassion and the breadth of his knowledge. Throughout his career, he was a pioneer in the field of preventative medicine and holistic health. Chris was a passionate and intelligent man, with many lifelong interests outside of medicine. He was a devoted student of the piano and loved playing and listening to music, especially Bach. He also held passions for tea (preferably Darjeeling), languages (most recently Chinese), and long distance running (or more recently walking). These interests, as well as his incisive mind and often devastating sense of humour are what defined him as a father and as a friend. In recent years, he shared his love of learning by tutoring in both Toronto and Saskatoon. Chris is sadly missed by his five children: Anais (Steve Humphreys), David (Laurel Howard), Karen, Alison (Terry Jordan) and Wilder; as well as his five grandchildren, Thais, Sydney, Alexander, Elena and Camille. A Memorial Service for family and friends will be announced in the Star Phoenix in the coming months. Condolences can be sent to: Scott Family, c/o 720 Ingersoll Street, Winnipeg, Manitoba, R3G 2J6.
