Mr. Wesley Scott of Glen Ewen, SK. passed away suddenly south of Carnduff on Tuesday, January 17, 2023 at the age of 92.
Wesley was a loving husband to wife Beatrice for 68 years, devoted father and dedicated farmer. At age 15 he took over the farm from his father, alongside his brother Bob. The two farmed side by side until his death. Wesley arrived at the shop first thing every morning without fail, even after having moved to town. His first tractor was a John Deere model D, and he kept up to the advancing technology in farming and cattle management without missing a beat. Wesley’s son, John, joined them on the farm and it continues through him as a family operation. The patriarch of the family, Wes’ work ethic and animal stewardship are legacies that have been passed down through the family, especially his love of dogs. He doted on his grandchildren and great grandchildren, loved to tease and was known for his sense of humour and fun. He will be remembered lovingly and memories shared will be cherished always. A valued member of the community, his presence, generosity and laugh will be missed by many.
Wes is survived by his wife, Beatrice (Hubbard); son, John (Darlene) of Glen Ewen and their children: Darryl (Cheryl) (children Austin, Darian, and Brynn), Wendy (Ian) Erdman (children Slade and Reece), and Matthew (Rebecca) (children Bridget, Wesley, Tara, and Zane); daughter, Gayle (Len) LaBrash of Regina and their children: Morgan (Garrett) Bullee (children Olivia and Sloane), and Tyler; son, Jerry of Estevan; and son, Mark (Shannon) of Oxbow and their children: Brody (Maddison), and Jayla; brother, Robert, brother-in-law, Bob Ward; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Wes was predeceased by his parents, Mungo and Gertrude (Duncan) Scott; sisters, Helen, Vernetta, and Rose; and great-granddaughters, Kate and Alexis Scott.
The service for Wes will be held at a later date.
God said, "I need somebody willing to get up before dawn, milk cows, work all day in the fields, milk cows again, eat supper, then go to town and stay past midnight at a meeting of the school board." God had to have somebody willing to ride the ruts at double speed to get the hay in ahead of the rain clouds, and yet stop in mid-field and race to help when he sees the first smoke from a neighbor’s place -- so God made a Farmer.
