Obituary — Donald Scott Robertson

Donald Scott Robertson
September 1, 1941 – April 10, 2020

Scott Robertson passed away suddenly on Friday, April 10 at the Robertson homestead in Iroquois, age 78. Loyal husband to Margaret (née Rae) of Iroquois. Loving father to Stephen (Skye) and Sarah (Tim) of Toronto, and Andrew (Melissa) of Guelph. Proud grandfather to Sefryn, Peregrine, Caroline, Stellan, and Adeline. Dear brother to Sandy of Campbellford, Dale (Haukaas) of Trail, and Guy of Penetanguishene, he is also survived by many loving nieces, nephews, and extended family. Predeceased by his first wife Mary (née Dixon) and parents Donald and Caroline (née Grisdale). Scott was born and raised along the St. Lawrence River. After a term of service in the Royal Canadian Navy, Scott attended the Ontario Agricultural College at the University of Guelph before returning to South Dundas to succeed his father as the sixth generation to operate the family farm. As an orchardist, he was a popular community figure, and will be forever remembered by all who knew him for his ready smile, engaging personality, and desire to help others.

We appreciate the outpouring of love and support from Scott’s many friends and hold in our hearts their wish to gather in his memory.

In the meantime, we would like to invite you to share any treasured memories, anecdotes, or stories about Scott by sending an email to rumandcider@gmail.com or postal mail to 11538 Lakeshore Drive, Iroquois. These will be shared in his honour at the celebration to come.
