thinking about ty...


SCAMMELL, Ty (Anthony John) passed peacefully away after a courageous battle with cancer on Sunday, March 28th, 2004 at the Vancouver General Hospital. Ty was born on August 3rd, 1950, in Kelowna, BC. He was predeceased by his parents, Stephen and Marjorie. He is survived by his loving brother, Peter, sister-in-law Lois and nephew Roger of Cornwall, Ontario. Ty spent his early years in White Rock, and after graduating from Semiahmoo High, moved to Vancouver. There he became a freelance photographer. His love and in-depth knowledge of music, particularly psychedelic, led to a career in the record business, where he became extremely well respected in his field. He could be found most weekends at his stall at the flea market on Terminal Ave. and at other times roaming the lower mainland searching for records. He also developed a love for the game of golf and played frequently at either the Queen Elizabeth or Rupert courses. He will be sadly missed by his family and many friends and acquaintances. A celebration of Ty's life will be held on Wednesday, March 31, 2004 at 2:00pm at the Vancouver Memorial Crematorium Chapel, 5505 Fraser St. (inside grounds of Mt. View Cemetery) 604-325-8251. In lieu of flowers, Ty would wish that donations be made to the Food Bank. Sincere thanks to the staff at the Palliative Care unit of VGH.


  1. You know how I feel.
    I miss him every day.


  2. Hey, thank you for putting a photo of Ty online! Didn't know anyone had them on the net. I used to love shopping at his stall at the Flea Market, he was a really sweet guy.
