Monds Jr., Scott Edward “Scotty”

Peacefully, on Wednesday January 11 2023, surrounded by the love of his family, Scott Edward Monds Jr. lost his lengthy battle with AML Leukaemia. Scotty spent his 28 years living life to the fullest. His love of ATV’ing, big trucks, hunting, and fishing were well known. His best days were spent with his amazing friends (and there are a lot) who never left his side. Family was so important to Scotty. He leaves behind his heartbroken parents, Diane and Scott, his brother Joey, who loved and supported him all day, every day and his amazing girlfriend Chrissy Stegmaier, who showed him what true love was all about.

Scotty’s dog Beau helped him through some of the hardest days and will miss him terribly.

Scotty was loved by his Grandparents, Dick and Dene Stafford (deceased) and Jim and Margaret Monds. He was blessed to have the best Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins. John and Karen Stafford, Kyle and Emily Stafford, Taylor and Jason Riley. Jason, Jen, Aaron and Jacob Stafford. Karen and David Monds. Jamie, Victoria, David and Liam Monds. Kelly and Terry Collett. Nicole, Simon, Addison and Joshua Lareau, Carley, Jamie and Josh Aussem. Cody, Kelsey, Everett and Brie Collett. We are forever grateful for our California Family, Jeff, Danielle, Jeremy, Berkley and Finley Bean. Without Danielle and the support of her family, the last 5 plus years would not have been possible. Danielle donated her Stem Cells to Scotty not once, but twice. Always our Angel from California and Family Forever.
We are forever thankful to Dr. Brian Leber, Nurse Practitioner Jenna French, the nursing teams of B4 and C4 and Oncology Day Service Nurses and Doctors along with the rest of the amazing team at Juravinski Hospital. Scotty always said, you were his people. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Juravinski Stem Cell Unit would be greatly appreciated. Donations of Blood, Platelets and Stem Cells via Canadian Blood Services are always encouraged.

Cremation has taken place. Celebration of Life will be planned for at a later date.

Fly high Scotty, Knowing how very much you are loved!
