March 17, 1966 – March 10, 2019

Allan “Scott” Cox, 52, unexpectedly passed away on March 10, 2019.

Scott is survived by his wife Tanya, sons Steven and Andrew, daughters Heather (Kyle) and Rebekah, and puppies Nala and Ava. Scott was a loving father, husband, and friend.

Scott was born in Orillia, Ontario to Allan and Elizabeth Cox. On June 10, 1989, he married his former wife, Theresa Murphy, and shared four children. He worked as a contractor before opening his own business, Allan’s Plaster and Painting, which came to an end in 1997. Starting in a new direction, Scott went to Mohawk College for Integrated Technology and began his IT career at CIBC, where he met his current wife, Tanya (Wood) Cox. Tanya and Scott were married on September 5th, 2003; they were happily married for 15 years.

Scott enjoyed barbecuing and cooking (especially steak & the spicier the better), always with a glass of red wine. Scott had many pastimes – one of his favorites being waking his kids up for school by playing Green Day on his electric guitar with the amp turned up to the max. He also enjoyed watching football, his favourite team being the San Francisco 49ers. Scott was a dreamer, and always had more projects on the go than you could count. Always with some type of renovation work to be done, you wouldn’t catch him wearing anything other than his safety Crocs, which doubled as snowshoes, and aided in his unwavering protest of winter. Scott loved to engage in profound conversation and always imparted his wisdom to his children. A loving and dedicated father, Scott cherished time with his family greatly, especially games night. Scott had a playful spirit and always had a joke or sarcastic remark for anything that came at him.

A dedicated follower of Christ since 1991, Scott remained faithful to the end.

A Celebration of Life service will be held at 2:00 PM – 5:00 PM on Friday, March 15th at the Turner Family Funeral Home, 53 Main St, Dundas, ON L9H 2P7.

    Scott treated all of us at work like family. He was both fun and a respected voice. I loved Scott’s philosophy regarding life, politics, religion, food and about all other life’s joy’s ( including and most importantly Football! )

    So many of us are richer in knowing and enjoying life with Scott.

    My thoughts are with Tanya, Heather, Steven, Andrew, Rebekah and the rest of Scott’s large work and Church families.

  • Lissa

    I had the pleasure of working with Scott for over 13 years. So many laughs and pranks and good talks and great memories. Our boss liked to say “we work hard and we play hard”. I think Scott embodied that so well. :) I’m going to miss you, buddy. Till we meet again.

  • Rhoda Bailey

    So sorry to hear about. Scott. Always enjoyed seeing and talking to him at our Cox family reunions. Condolences to the family.

  • Dawn Leng

    Still trying to understand or make sense of this loss but God’s plan is greater than all of us and isn’t always made known.

    Scott was such a unique individual; he could as easily play pranks as solve complex problems at work, he could as easily insulate a house as wax philosophic on faith, on family. As someone said recently, he lived life the way he wanted to; we are all the better for having known him.

    Tanya, Heather, Steven, Andrew, Rebekah – our thoughts and prayers are with you.

  • Lois Sloninko

    My deepest sympathies to you and your family Tanya. May you find peace in your memories now and in the days ahead. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  • Tammy Cox Mitchell


  • Kyle Dowling

    My condolences to Scott’s family and friends. I had the pleasure of working with Scott for 10 years. He was always able to lighten the mood with his good nature and sense of humour. Whether it was calling your name and asking “how far would you have been?” or wearing flip-flops in the snow, he had a way of making you laugh. Scott was a great guy who will be missed by many. Thanks for the laughs!

  • Cheri Lee

    I met Scott while working in the bowels of the CHCH building. He certainly made everyday brighter down there by his witty humour and playing practical jokes on us – (I hope Saint Peter doesn’t mind having the keys to the Pearly Gates hidden on a daily basis). My sincere condolences to Scott’s family at this devastatingly difficult time.

    It’s sad to know that Scott is no longer with us . Underneath that joyful and humorous character, was a guy who’s loving, smart and sincere. I got nothing but respect for Scott. Mar 17 is more than St.Patrick day, its Green day, it’s Scott’s day.

  • Richard Ackad

    My condolences to Scott’s family. I had the pleasure to work with Scott for the past 4 years. I still remember when we first met in 2015 in Winnipeg; and he was wearing his shorts and crocks at -10C. In addition to be a very funny guy, he was my “go to” guy when I needed something from his team. “Au revoir” Scott and may your soul rest in peace.

  • Carm Ciotti-Hooper

    Scott was a trustworthy, amazing friend and teacher of the gospel. It always felt like he was talking about his friend and I looked forward to his words and encouragement.

May God bless his family and friends with grace and peace and warmth from all the loving memories.
