Remembering Scott Chant: Very many people are wishing to pay their respects to Scott and his family and his funeral service/ celebration of life – however due to distance, illness etc., they are not able to attend the service in person. This page has been set up for a central location for those that would like to light a candle, pay their respects, share a fond memory of Scott, to do so online together.

They have mentioned: “We would like his funeral to be a celebration of Scott’s life so please feel welcome to wear colour and whatever you are most comfortable in. There will be a donation box at the service for anyone wishing to contribute to the Lyme Disease Association of Australia.
For those of you wishing to celebrate Scott’s life following the funeral, we have reserved an area at the Eaton’s Hill Hotel from 12.30.
Scott was a much loved and respected member of the Australian Lyme community. The compassion, generosity of spirit and thoughtfulness he showed to others in the community was amazing, and his loss has been profoundly felt. We can only imagine that the loss would be felt a hundred fold by those that were proud to call him a son, brother, uncle, friend.
Scott fought for recognition and treatment of Lyme Borreliosis in Australia. He had high hopes that the science would "see the truth revealed". Sadly Scott's determination to see Lyme recognised and his love of life and his family was overshadowed by his need to escape his constant pain, and he is now another Australian fighting this battle to gain his angel wings far too soon.
Thoughts with Scott's family, friends, all those that knew and loved him at this extremely sad time <3
