Micheal Scott Obituary, Death – Mike was born on April 29 in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and he died away on November 18 in Collingwood, Ontario. He had reached the age of 44 at the time of his death. He is survived by his son Ryder, his brother Jeff, and his wife Abbey, who was a Spies. Survived by his wife Abbey (née Spies), son Ryder, and parents James Scott (Lynne Forrest) and Dianne Scott. Also survived by his son Ryder (Samantha). Mike was a proud fireman who served the towns of Aurora and Newmarket as a member of the Central York Fire Services and operated out of Station 4-3, which was located in Newmarket.
Mike’s former employer, the Blue Mountains Fire Department, employed him as a firefighter for seven years, during which time he served in that capacity. In our minds, Mike’s love of the great outdoors will always be associated with the many times we saw him riding his stand-up paddleboard, his bicycle, or hitting the slopes. We will miss his enthusiasm for these activities. He was an extremely devoted employee who took immense pride in his role as a firefighter. He delighted in each and every facet of his career. He found great comfort in the company of his fellow firefighters and considered them to be part of his own family.
The successes of Mike’s son Ryder, who is an outstanding skier and exhibits all of Mike’s finest traits, were the source of Mike’s greatest pride. Mike looked up to Ryder as a role model for all of his best attributes. Mike’s incredible comeback after being involved in a devastating motorbike accident in 2016 provided as motivation for a large number of individuals and acted as an inspiration to Mike himself. In every possible way, the bravery, dedication, and energy he exerted to get better exceeded the expectations of the physicians. He will continue to serve as a source of motivation for all of us, and his narrative will be passed down from generation to generation.
He was a loving husband and parent first and foremost, but he was also a devoted friend to a very large number of individuals. Everyone will grieve his passing in their own unique ways. Unfortunately, Mike was not successful in overcoming his mental illness, but we would want to extend our most sincere gratitude to everyone who cheered him on during his path toward recovery. On Friday, November 23, there will be a memorial ceremony at one o’clock, following by visitation at noon. The funeral will be on the same day. The Craigleith Ski Club, located in the Town of the Blue Mountains, will serve as the venue for both of these competitions.
