It is with heavy hearts we mourn the loss of ‘Rik’ Scott, who lost a short fight with Cancer. He past away in the loving arms of his wife and best friend Dede.
Rik and his family moved to Quesnel from Vancouver Island in 2004, it was here he discovered his love for the rural life and horses as did his wife and daughter. They spent many memorable hours trail riding together, and met some now, dear and close friends in the process. For the past 10 years, Rik worked at B&A Autobody he was a meticulous body man and took pride in his work. His passion however, was rebuilding and refurbishing vehicles. His last project was his 1996 GMC truck that Rik and his good friend Michael Roy spent countless hours over the summer months refurbishing before Rik was diagnosed with Terminal cancer.
Thanks to Rik’s co-workers for stepping up to finish assembling the truck when he was unable to.
A very special thanks to Dr. Slabbert for his genuine,
caring efforts for Rik.
A devoted husband and father and Rik was happiest when surrounded by both his wife and kids.
He was a true and considerate friend and will be greatly missed.
Our fondest memories of him will linger forever in our hearts.
Rik is predeceased by his mother Suzanne Preiss.
