Dr. Scott L. Henderson passed away peacefully, with love by his side, at the Lakeridge Health Oshawa, on Wednesday, Sept. 21, 2022, in his 72nd year.
He was a dedicated, beloved partner and adventure guide to Nadine Yeo, who enthusiastically shared their great journey.
Scott was predeceased by his wife Patricia, his son Mathew and his parents Larry and Vera Henderson of Medicine Hat, Alta. He was a very loving brother of Kim (Harvey "Zack") Bernbaum of Calgary — both of whom he deeply cherished. He was the proud and loving uncle of Talia Bernbaum (Robert Birrell) of Calgary and Piper Bernbaum (Connor O'Grady) of Ottawa.
Scott will be lovingly remembered for his warmth and understanding by his extended family, many relatives and his vast network of friends near and far. As a family physician in Whitby for over 30 years, the most memorable aspect of his medical career was delivering babies and being the team doctor for the Oshawa Generals hockey team.
He loved the interactions with all his patients and relished being referred to as "Doc."
To say Scott lived life to the fullest would be an understatement. He was passionate about sports — both playing and an avid fan. Growing up close to the Rocky Mountains of Alberta, it was only natural that he became a highly skilled downhill skier, eventually joining the ski patrol and rubbing elbows with Olympians.
In his university days, Scott played with the University of Calgary Dinos football team and, after moving to Ontario, became an enthusiastic golfer (WNGL, Probus) and an avid hockey player with the Durham Bulls and Docs on Ice.
He also truly enjoyed being an ardent member of the Whitby Curling Club. Further, Scott loved art, deeply enjoyed travel and cherished time with friends and extended family.
His truly dynamic and convivial personality could light up a room; the world has lost a bright light that will forever be missed. In memory of Scott, donations to a charity of your choice, or consider donating blood to Canadian Blood Services, would be appreciated.
