Following an uphill battle, Scott passed away unexpectedly, on Friday, April 2, 2021 at the age of 28. He will be gratefully missed by his daughter Charolette and her sisters Keyda, and Harley. Cherished son of Sheri and Marvin Taylor and Jeff Forde and his partner Rose. Loving grandson of Lee and Darrell Grainger and Lois Forde. Proud brother of Krista and Greame Burndt, Tanya Forde and Chris Chase, and Samantha and Max Masse. Special uncle of Amber, Tristan, Mia, Skylar, Leah, Tenley, Gabrielle, and Maddilyn. Dear step-brother of Kari and Marty Debruyn, Krista and Trumane Taylor-McLean, and Kim Taylor. Step-uncle of Jesse, Jasper, Jorja, Isaiah, and Olivia.
Scott struggled with opioid addictions for many years. He fought hard with all he had to get the help he needed to beat his addictions. With the strong determination to move forward, comes another uphill battle, fighting off the effects of withdrawal. Though Scott had his struggles, his family never once let them determine the person he was. Scott was a man who was happiest around his children, nieces, and nephews. His smile always lit up the room he walked into.
Cremation has taken place. Arrangements entrusted to Haskett Funeral Home, Seaforth (519-527-1390).
Donations to Tanner Steffler Foundation or the CMHA Huron Perth would be appreciated by the family.
