Scott Mitchell EdlundMarch 1, 1961 ~ March 25, 2017
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Scott. He was born 1 March 1961 in Yorkton, Saskatchewan and died suddenly 25 March 2017 at his home in Whitehorse, Yukon. He was a graduate of Evan Hardy Collegiate in Saskatoon. While there he was a very successful member of the school’s wrestling team, winning honours at the provincial and national level.
Scott had a heart as big as the outdoors he so dearly loved. He embraced life whether it be fishing, reading, golfing, or sharing a drink with his many friends in Whitehorse. He had little, but shared lots. If no one laughed at his stories you could guarantee he would. If you ever got into trouble, you would want Scottie to have your back. Even as a toddler there was nothing that he was afraid of jumping of off, over or through and the many dents in his family’s vehicles attested to this fact as he grew older. He was a jack of many trades and moved to Whitehorse more than twenty years ago to make use of them all. His many friends and family will miss his booming laugh, his unwavering support and his warm hugs.
Sadly missed by his mother, Madge Clare McMillan; his father, Robert Frederick (Phyllis) Edlund; his brothers, Robert Mark (Jo-Anne) Edlund and Guy Frederick Edlund and sister, Dawn Elizabeth (Richard Ellis) Edlund. Nephews John, Adrian (Stephanie Mancini), Kalem and Elias and his niece, Molly (Garrett Williamson) will all miss him dearly. Fondly remembered by Merrill Gray. Sadly he never got to meet his new great niece, Mavis Elizabeth Williamson. His Lobstick buddies will raise a toast to him at this year’s tournament.
Plans for a celebration of his life are pending at this time. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to your local animal shelter.
