Scothorn, Luke Reginald – Age 22 of Hardwoodlands. It is with deep sadness and broken hearts that we must tell you of the unexpected death of our son, Luke Scothorn, on October 21, 2018. Born in Truro, and proudly raised in Hardwoodlands, he was the son of Paul and Theresa Scothorn.
Besides his parents, he is survived by paternal grandparents, Peter VanTol “Opa” and Nancy Lee Scothorn; maternal grandmother, Carol Turpel; aunt, Tina Scothorn; uncle, John Turpel; cousin and “special sister”, Lydia; paternal great-grandmother, Jean Scothorn; goddaughter, Leah; many extended family members who were a part of his daily life. He was predeceased by paternal grandfather, Reginald Scothorn; maternal grandfather, John Turpel “Gramps”.
Luke was an extremely proud dairy farmer and loved all aspects of the farming industry. Spending most of his days on the farm, he had a vast wealth of knowledge and experience at the age of 22. Luke loved to bring people together; whether it was a hunting or fishing trip, or a party in the woods, Luke enjoyed people and people enjoyed Luke. He was a dynamic, unique, old soul who would do anything for anyone. He enjoyed classic rock music for the message, which resonated for him. Family, friends and community were very important to Luke and he had a voice that he was not afraid to use. He was a non-conformist, and a genuine, kind-hearted, fun-loving, compassionate individual.
Cremation has taken place under the direction of Arimathea Funeral Cooperative, Upper Musquodoboit.
In keeping with Luke’s agricultural roots, his family would like to gather at a place he loved. Please join us outside at Scothorn Farms in Hardwoodlands, McDonald Road entrance, at 3 p.m. on Monday, October 29, to share some special memories. Immediately following, there will be an Open House in Enfield Legion Branch No. 133. To reflect Luke’s personality, please dress for comfort, not for style. All cowboy and rubber boots welcome.
In keeping with Luke’s love of animals, memorial donations may be made to your local SPCA.
