SCOTT LEROUX It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Scott Leroux on October 29 at 28 years old. He will be tremendously missed by his parents, Janice and Doug Leroux; brother Ryan; sister Krysten (Darren Mulhall), Baba Kathie Warrenchuk; grandma Fran Leroux, partner Zorya Arrow, the Post, Mee, Warrenchuk, Tomecek, Bobrosky and Leroux families, his many friends, co-workers and all of the lives he touched in the arts community. He was pre-deceased by his Gigi, John Warrenchuk and Grandpa Dick Leroux who he never had the chance to meet. Scott was born and grew up in The Pas, Manitoba. His family lived briefly in Winnipeg when Scott was in middle school and then settled in Lac du Bonnet where Scott spent his high school years. Scott was an artist from the time he was born, and his natural talent flourished through the support of teachers at Lac du Bonnet Senior School. He was a self-taught musician, which together with his art, became his life's passions. Scott proudly graduated from the University of Manitoba with an Honours Degree in Fine Arts in 2014. While at the U of M, he served as Vice President of the Fine Arts Student Council and was a founding member and editor/producer of Chesterfield magazine, a campus publication that promoted student art. After graduation, Scott settled into the Winnipeg community and could not imagine living anywhere else. Although he travelled to other places in the world, he had found his place in life. Scott had many interests in his short but full life, each of which he pursued to the ninth degree. He was a hockey player as a child, a BMXer who helped build the original bike park in Lac du Bonnet, a volunteer at the Bike Dump where he built bikes for needy children, a tree-planter with Outland, a photographer, a videographer, a producer, composer, and organ-player extraordinaire. He was a driver with Core-Mark during the day, a job he loved, but it was his work in the arts community, which truly fuelled his soul. Scott's "To Do" list on his whiteboard was simple: "Release compositions, Paint a painting, Visit Friends, Record something, Learn a song, Play guitarloud." Let this be an inspiration to all of us. Scott will be lovingly remembered for his quirky creativity, positive outlook, generous heart, and the tireless support he provided to others. His legacy will live on through the art on our walls, the recordings through our speakers, and the inspiration and support he provided to those in the arts community. The family would like to thank the staff at the Health Sciences Centre for their emergency actions with Scott and the compassion and kindness that they provided in the family's hour of need. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Art City at 616 Broadway, Winnipeg, MB. R3C 0W8 or the WRENCH, which provides bikes to immigrant children, at 1057 Logan Ave, Winnipeg, R3E3N8. A memorial service will be held for Scott on Friday, November 4 at 11:00 a.m. at the First Lutheran Church, 580 Victor Street. NEIL BARDAL FUNERAL CENTRE 204-949-2200
