Passed away, peacefully, at the Tillsonburg District Memorial Hospital, on June 4th, 2020, Douglas (Doug) Earle Scott, a resident of Tillsonburg and formerly a longtime resident of Springford, at the age of 90. Born on September 8th, 1929 in Bayham Township, to the late Harry Scott (1980) and late former Minnie Wollstein (1978).

For many years, Doug was a proud member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and Peace Lutheran Church, Tillsonburg. Prior to losing his vision, he was a well-known Canada Post mail carrier, farmer and enjoyed taking part in the Canada Day parades in Springfield and Otterville with his horse and buggy, while wearing his cowboy attire. He loved to dance, especially to his favourite country and western music. Doug can be described as very social, caring, kind and a selfless man that would give you the shirt off of his back; his presence will be greatly missed by all that knew him.

Doug is predeceased by his wife of 64 years, Dorothy Jane (Smith) Scott (2014), by his three sons Paul (2016), Jonathan (2019), David (1954) and by two brothers Don (2006) and Joe (2016). Doug will be fondly remembered by his grandchildren; Eric (Carla), Lindsay (Jeff), Ryan, Maggie (Craig) and his great-grandchildren; Astin, Lexi, Ava, Alissa, Cameron, Clara, Lainey and Addie. Doug is survived by his daughters-in-law Barb and Wanda, brothers Roger (late Lois), Bryce, Ross (June), sister-in-law Corinne, his dear friend Barbara Curtis, and many beloved and appreciated friends and neighbors.

In light of the recent COVID-19 social distancing regulations, a Private Graveside Service to Celebrate Douglas’ well lived life will take place in Delmer Cemetery by Pastor Paul Schallhorn, of Peace Lutheran Church, Tillsonburg.

Please follow this below link to view the Graveside Service from June 6th, 2020 at 3:00 p.m.

Please feel free to leave a condolence, share memories or photos, or donate in Doug’s memory to the “Canadian Mental Health Association- Oxford,” through the Maurice J. Verhoeve Funeral Homes- Burial and Cremation Services Inc., Tillsonburg (519-842-4238), entrusted with all arrangements.

Wanda & family:
Please accept our condolences on the passing of Doug, both Joe and I worked on several Provincial and Federal election campaigns with both Doug and Dorothy and found they were always willinging to help however they could. Doug was a very interesting man and over the years we had our differences on some topics, but our respect for Doug's point of view was always strong.

It is my wish that you take comfort in the many memories you have of Doug. I can remember going with my grandparents, Russell & Clara Codling, to visit Doug and Dorothy over 50 years ago when we lived in the area. Always a lot of fun was had by all.

R.I.P. dear Doug, you will be missed by many. You were so interesting to talk to, you knew just about everything there was to know about old Tillsonburg. I so enjoyed our many chats sitting in your porch on summer evenings. I remember one time Dorothy came out and asked us if we knew what time it was, I said " No " she said " It is passed midnight ". Doug could not believe it - nor could I. Thoughts and Prayers to all the family. I can't get to the service but will be there in spirit. God Bless you all.
