Robert Scott Sager

January 18, 1947 - April 21, 2018


(Robert) Scott Sager January 18, 1947 – April 21, 2018 He’s in his Saviour’s arms! Free of struggles with cancer, free of struggles with the reminisces of a stroke. Surrounded by love, Scott came to the end of his earthly journey. He ran the race and finished it well. Scott was born in Ottawa, worked his way up in the corporate world in Toronto and moved to Powell River 30 years ago to raise his children and follow his dream to build a house with his own hands. In his pre-retirement, a term he coined, he took on new challenges as well as checking things off his bucket list. He founded the first emu farm in BC, drove a school bus and garbage truck in Nova Scotia, and took on a heritage bed and breakfast with his wife Elke in Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia. Powell River was his home base all along until the couple moved back full time. Scott applied his brilliant mind and problem-solving skills to a number of community organizations ranging from business development, tourism, church and the seniors’ centre. Left behind are his wife Elke, children Shane (Anne), Adam, Shannon (Kyle, Kayla, Emily and precious grandchild Scarlett), and step-daughter Joelle. The depth of love and sadness felt cannot be described. A heartfelt thank-you to all the wonderful individuals who helped us along in this journey, especially nurse practitioner Erin Rubikoff, Dr. Reierson, first responders, ambulance attendants, staff in the emergency department, ICU, all supporting staff, and friends. A celebration of life will be held from 1 to 3 pm on Sunday, April 29, at Cranberry Seniors Centre. In lieu of flowers, a donation to Powell River Hospital Foundation is requested.
