Scott Andrew Mitchell


Sadly, the family of Scott Andrew Mitchell lost their son/brother on Sunday, August 27, 2023. Scott was enjoying a swim after a hot day near his house in Lac la Biche, Alberta when he succumbed to a medical emergency. Scott had spoken with Doug and Ruth, and Duff in separate calls earlier that very day.  Scott was born in a Cornwall, Ontario hospital and adopted at birth by Doug and Ruth Mitchell. Scott was born on October 23, 1965. Doug and Ruth raised Scott with their three other sons and daughter, originally in Chesterville, Ontario, and then in Haliburton, where Scott spent most of his youth. Scott was a fun-loving son. He loved to play sports, especially hockey, where he was an excellent defenceman. Scott was known to be a prankster and loved a good laugh. Scott moved to Alberta two decades ago, where he worked for different trucking companies. He enjoyed time on his boat and driving his corvette. Many of Scott's friends in Lac la Biche have called to discuss their friendship with Scott. It has been heartwarming to hear these stories. Scott last visited Haliburton four years ago and spoke regularly about how much he enjoyed visiting with friends. He had great memories of living in Haliburton. Scott was able to find his birth mother and family in Akwesasne recently. Scott, a status Indian, had only started to understand his heritage at the time of his passing.  Scott is survived by his loving parents, Doug and Ruth Mitchell, brothers Duff, his daughter Ruby and spouse Vesna, Kelly and wife Shirley, Drew and wife Lee Ann and sister Krista, husband George and daughters Emma and Georgia.
