R. W. Scott Simmons
1932-2018
R. W.
(Scott)
Simmons
Devoted husband and family
man, successful businessman, committed Christian, proud Salvationist,
caring friend for those in need and less fortunate than himself. Scott
lived a long and vibrant life and passed away peacefully in his sleep
in the early hours of Sunday May 20, 2018. Scott was born in
Lewisporte, NL on October 4, 1932, the first of 10 children to Willis
and Ida Simmons. He spent most of his childhood growing up in the
railroad town of Bishop’s Falls. With his outgoing
personality and a love of people, he made many friends and colleagues
over his 85 years. Many are left to mourn his passing: his loving wife
of 63 years, Ruby Estella Simmons (nee Legge); 5 children – Bruce,
June (Henry), Keith (Darlene), Bonnie (Blair), Wayne (Nadia); 12
grandchildren – David (Sara), Stephanie (Blake), Jennifer (Owen),
Janice, Jonathan, Sharleen (Chad), Stephen (Michelin), Sarah (Sean),
Kurtis, Matthew, Christopher (Emma), Amy (Kevin); 6
great-grandchildren – Felicity, Bella, Anna, Kate, Eva, Lillie;
brothers and sisters – Roger (Glorina), Bonnie (Ron), Dave (Valda),
Rose, Dale (Marilyn), Cavell; brothers- and sisters-in-law, Bernice
Simmons, Dom and Audrey Howse, Ed and Fern Lutz; special friends Bern
and Debbie Pollett, Roy Brown; loyal employees who became great
friends, Pete Alexander, Jim Jenkins; a very large circle of friends
and colleagues. Scott was predeceased by his parents, Willis and Ida
Simmons, father- and mother-in-law Wilson and Eva Legge, brothers Noel
Simmons and Howard Simmons, sister Yvonne Reid and brother-in-law Jim
Reid. Scott and Ruby loved each other very much and shared a wonderful
life together, raising their children in a Christian home, working
hard, building a business and travelling the world. Scott’s
greatest joy was providing for Ruby and giving her and their family
the best life he knew possible. His formative years taught him a
strong work ethic, the value of money, thriftiness and a willingness
to take chances; this served him well in his working and business
career. He took great pride in his work, whether as the Circulation
Manager with the Western Star, Marketing Manager with Atlantic Design
Homes, or running his various business operations, Scosim Driving
School, Humber Esso service station, many construction initiatives and
the family farms, Hammond Farm and Scosim Farms. He put his business
acumen to good use by serving on several agricultural boards and was
inducted into the Atlantic Agricultural Hall of Fame in 1997. Scott
valued hard work and expected nothing less from himself and others; he
equally enjoyed the fruits of his labour and he loved to surround
himself with people and to socialize with friends; he laughed often
and enjoyed a good story and a clean joke – whether it was
him or someone else telling it. Wherever he went, he found a new
friend. Scott loved the Lord and always welcomed the opportunity to
witness to others. He thoroughly enjoyed worshiping at the Salvation
Army and was an active member of the band for much of his adult life.
He cared for others deeply and always looked for ways to offer his
help; whether with Christmas hampers, a neighbour in need, a quiet
prayer, assisting with a highway accident, or volunteering with the
cleanup in New York City after the 9-11 attacks – he would
put his knowledge, expertise and caring nature to work. He took great
pride in teaching his children and grandchildren the importance of
helping others less fortunate. The family would like to thank those
who provided care to Scott in recent years: Dr. Robert Young, the
staff of 2 South Long Term Care, Corner Brook and
3rd Floor ALC Western Memorial
Regional Hospital, Sandy Park with TLC home care, Barb Balsom with
Community Health and other employees from the various health care
facilities and organizations. Visitation will take place at
Fillatre’s Funeral Home, St. Mark’s Avenue, Corner
Brook – Friday, May 25, 2018, 2:00 – 4:00 pm and
7:00 – 9:00 pm. Funeral service will be held at the
Salvation Army Temple, O’Connell Drive, Corner Brook, 2:00
pm Saturday, May 26, 2018. To continue Scott’s legacy of
caring and giving, donations may be made to the Corner Brook Salvation
Army Family Services. The family guestbook may be signed by visiting
