Scott McIntosh Obituary, Death Cause – The demise of HSO principal trumpet Scott McIntosh has left us all in a state of profound sadness. After 15 years of service to the HSO, Scott made a multitude of contributions that impacted and improved the lives of a great number of people. Scott was able to put a smile on a lot of people’s faces, led his section with flair, and consistently prioritized the music over everything else. He will be greatly missed by everyone.
The McIntosh family wishes to convey their deepest condolences to all who knew and loved their loving son and brother, Scott McIntosh, who grew up in Stratford. His departure came unexpectedly. The life that Scott led was full of excitement and adventure, and it carried him all across the country to meet new people and try new things. His travels brought him to the town of Vanderhoof in British Columbia, where he erected a log cabin of his own design and started a family.
As a result, many members of the family have taken on that same zest for life and appreciation of the natural world that Scott loved. Scott had a wonderful sense of humor and enjoyed sharing laughs with his loved ones, especially his family and friends. Because of the work that he did with various youth programs throughout the years, Scott earned a lot of affection and respect in the community of the reserve. As a result of his participation in and promotion of the culture, language, and song of the Saik’uz First Nation, the members of that community came to regard him as one of their own.
He was always eager to lend a helping hand to others, whether it was in the construction of homes or the construction of relationships. The kind and thoughtful nature of Scott has affected and brightened the lives of a great number of people. His children, Cora (and her husband Derek), Willy (and their daughter Kayla), and Joe, as well as his parents, John and Lois McIntosh of Stratford, will grievously miss him (Kylee). In British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, and New Brunswick, he is also predeceased by his cherished grandkids, nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews. Mark, Scott’s brother (Zoe), and Beth, Scott’s sister (Cody), and Pam, Scott’s sisters, remember him with affection (Brent). Celebrations of life will be held at the homes of friends and family all across the provinces.
Dear Scott, may you rest in peace knowing that you were deeply loved and will never be forgotten.
