It is with great sorrow that the family of Arlan Robert Ryan Scott suddenly passed away in his home in Fort Frances on Monday, Aug. 27, 2018.
Arlan was born on Nov. 3, 1968 to Ryan and Donna Scott in Emo, Ont. Arlan worked at Arc Industries, the core plant and was part of Community Living where he was on the grounds crew, raking leaves, shoveling snow and cutting grass.
Arlan especially liked working with Steve McEvoy and many other support workers.
He delivered the Westend Weekly newspaper for 20 years. Arlan also worked at Diana's Needle Embroidery for 23 years, as well at Doug Kitowski Trucking.
Arlan was an avid recycler of cans. He was well known all over town. He spoke to everyone and knew them by name. He could be seen around town riding his bike.
Arlan loved to dance and play darts with his Legion friends. Arlan made many trips and received many awards with the Special Olympics.
Arlan was a bit of a tease and had the best one-liners in town. He was always overheard telling his nieces and nephew, “You munchkins should go fly a kite.”
Arlan leaves behind his parents, Ryan and Donna Scott; sister, Brenda Scott; brother Carl (Krista); nieces, Ryann and Maren and their mother, Kim; nephew, Gareth, and niece, Lilith, and their mother, Sharon; as well as numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
He was predeceased by his grandparents, Gordon and Myrtle Scott, and Crem and Hazel Seed, and many special aunts, uncles and cousins.
Honourary pallbearers will be everyone who knew Arlan.
