R.I.P. Walter William Scott (1928-2014)

I am sad to announce the passing of Walter (AKA Walt or Sonny) Scott this morning in Rochester, NY. He was the son of Walter Archibald Scott from Little Bay East, Newfoundland. Obituary

Walter worked at Kee Lox, a paper company, many years before getting hired by Eastman Kodak and working on the instant camera until his retirement in 1990.

FYI: Many Scotts were associated with Eastman, including my great grandfather William Scott of Little Bay East.

Left with sister Shirley Alice mid 1930s

    He was also a wonderful grandpa and great grandpa. He was my best friend, the person I talked with every single day, the first I wanted to tell any good news to. I am glad he will be back with my grandma and he can tell her all about the great grandkids.. They were truly amazing people and I love them so much and miss them terrible!!
