Obituary for Scot Sveinie Valgardson

Scot will be forever remembered by his parents Norm & Dodie, sisters Michelle (Tyler), Mandi (Dave),brothers Jeff (Marilyn), Shane & Quinn. Also remembering Scot are his nephews Andrew (Kerry), Luke (Shannon), Colby (Janine), Nik (Amey), Tyson, Theo & Johannes, nieces Recene (Jason), Raven, Cassandra (Eri), Sadie & Destiny along with numerous Aunts, Uncles & Cousins. Scot was predeceased by his mother Gloria, brother Brad, grandparents Rose & Jack Dixon, Katherine & Joe Syczylo & Gordon Stark.

Scot was a very private person but stayed well connected to family. He was always looking for a new challenges and was happiest when he was outdoors. He used his natural wood working talents to make treasure chests for his nieces, wood carvings for his siblings and even building a 25,000 sq ft warehouse with roof top parking for Summerhill Winery.

In his youth he learned to fly a glider, raced his Chevy Nova & rail car at the Gimli racetrack and helped his Dad race horses at the Assiniboia Downs winning a stakes race with his beloved horse Viking Debut. Scot loved to ski and in his 20's moved to Kelowna to be closer to the mountains and fell in love with the city and lived there until his passing. Scot's most recent employment was working for Steven at the Summerhill Winery which hoped to have a memorial for Scot but Covid-19 has interfered.

We would like to thank Neil Bardal Funeral Home (Winnipeg) and Springfield Funeral Home (Kelowna) for all their assistance in bringing Scot home. We are forever grateful to Todd &Val Valgardson for all their help in Kelowna and for being our spokesman. Cremation has taken place.

My deepest condolences to Scottys family! I just learned of his passing today and cannot believe how someone who was such a good person who I very much respected is no longer going to stop in for a surprise visit. The last time we talked he told me how good and fresh the salad in a bag was from Superstore because all you needed to do was just add salad dressing. I will remember Scotty as an intellectual who figured things out on his own. He was one of a kind great man.....and I loved him like a brother. Rest in peace my dear friend.

Scot and I were friends from way back. We spent our teenage years together with our group of friends. He was our light man for our band... he built an elaborate lighting board. We cruised around town with our hot cars. He absolutely loved his Nova with the 350 4-11 gears. Spent a few summers at the drag strip running his rail. We drove down to Mazalan Mexico from Gimli in my Toyota 4x4. It was an awesome trip driving thu the Sierra Madre mountains... many good thrilling memories. Spent summers playing friznog and hanging out at the bonfire. He moved on to Kelowna. He loved it there. Rest in peace my friend.

I was very saddened by the sudden passing of my cousin Scott. It had been many years since I had seen him. As children we were close until we left Manitoba.
