War veteran, long-time Legionnaire, Kit Scott dies at 85
by Machelle Curtis
Star Staff Writer
Corner Brook
Arthur Kitchener (Kit) Scott
is being remembered this week as a dedicated Legionnaire who will be missed by family and friends. A veteran of the Second World War and a member of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 13 in Corner Brook, Mr. Scott died Tuesday, Feb. 27, at the age of 85.
"He was a very hard worker and he was a very active member of the Legion until just a few years ago when his health started to fail him,"
said fellow Legionnaire Gus Cossitt. "He holds all of the honours the Legion could award to any member, including being a life member and holding the Meritorious Service Medal."
Serving in Italy, North Africa and England, Cossitt said Mr. Scott became very involved in the Legion upon his return home and was instrumental in many of the branch's projects and activities. "He went overseas in May of 1945 and served with the 166 Field Regiment and was the last soldier to be discharged to come back home," he said. "But once home he became involved in the local branch and served as vice president and later president several times."
Mr. Scott's brother Bob recalls receiving letters from his older brother during the war and listening for news of his safe arrival back home. "I remember getting letters and listening to the news because even though I was only five, I still have very vivid memories of that time," he said. "He had many stories to tell of these activities and while I can't say he enjoyed the war, it was quite an adventure." After the war, Mr. Scott returned to his job at the mill in Corner Brook as an electrical worker before later moving on to a car dealership. He eventually went on to work with City Motors until he later retired. However, despite a busy career, Bob said his brother remained committed to the Legion. He said he remembers his brother's efforts in helping to erect the new Legion building located on West Street and his involvement in the community. "I remember he joined the Legion when he came back from overseas, and their first activity was to help build a new building and he was quite active in helping to raise the funds, build and operate it," he said, adding his brother also served for some time as president of the Corner Brook Hockey Association. Mr. Scott also played all-star hockey, soccer and tennis before the war but an ankle injury prevented him from competing after he returned home.
Bob Scott is also pleased that despite his brother's failing health in recent years, his memory of the experiences of war and the friendships he built never seemed to dim. "Until the end he had vivid memories of all the actions - he could tell me every action of the war and about all the people that had served with him," he said. "He was a very outgoing person, he knew a lot of people and enjoyed his community, but it seemed his main love was always the Legion."
Mr. Scott was predeceased by his wife Muriel and leaves to mourn four sons: Sean, Dean, Van and Gregory, one brother, one sister and four grandchildren.

(the following article on Mr. Williams was published on March 31)
Deer Lake mourns death of popular businessman
The town of Deer Lake is mourning the recent passing of Dexter John (DJ) Williams, a long-time businessman in the community. Mr. Williams, who was born in Triton in 1909, died at the J. I. O'Connell Centre in Corner Brook March 23 at the age of 91. As a young man, Mr. Williams exuded entrepreneurial spirit, getting his first taste of the business world as the owner of a dogsled team. Realizing very early on his love of the business world, he became involved in a variety of projects over the years. From securing fishing vessels bound for Labrador, Mr. Williams would later go on to dabble in sawmills, tuna boats and even ran the town post office in Triton for about five years before heading to Deer Lake, where he returned to sawmill operations securing lumber for such large companies as Bowaters. He later started his own grocery store and ran an oil delivery service in both Deer Lake and the White Bay area. Always full of business ideas and seeking out better opportunities, Mr. Williams later enlisted the assistance of his three sons in establishing a family trucking company. Williams Transport would later become responsible for freight runs from Moncton, NB, to St. John's. Mr. Williams and his sons opened Williams Building Supplies in Deer Lake, which today is still operated by one of his sons. Mr. Williams was predeceased by his first wife Annie and leaves to mourn his second wife Hilda, residing at the seniors cottages in Springdale, three sons and five daughters.
