  1. To all family, friends and work colleagues who have posted words of sympathy, support and love to the Brownridge / Schinner; Cantoni / Bud Families we thank you all most sincerely. For the amazing Fund started by work colleagues at the Melbourne Convention Centre. I thank you so very much for what you have done in helping Tammy, Shakima and Zane have support looking ahead to their life without Scott. For Tammy it is devastating; for Shakima and Zane, bewildering that Daddy doesn’t come home from work anymore. Michael and I know now how much Scott was respected as a person and we are very proud of him (well we always have been). We will always miss him yet know he is in our hearts forever.

    1. Dearest Aunty Jan and Uncle Michael, and to Tammy, Shakima and Zane – we are devastated to hear about the tragic passing of Scott… he was, and will be remembered always, as a genuine, kind and humorous guy, and he will be greatly missed ..

      Love from William, Rebecca & Henry xx

  2. Tammy, Shakima, Zane. Scott Bowie didn’t have a bad bone in him but he did have a big brain and a big talent. Whenever I hear the bouncy cheer of a good man, I shall think of my friend Scottie and I shall think of you Tammy and your children and the legacy they carry forward. Stay strong.

  3. Beautiful ceremony. The tributes and anecdotes expressed real love and great humour. The videos and photo montage had me in stiches with laughter and also drew some tears. Such a sad loss. Thoughts with the family from a 2nd cousin and family in Brisbane.

    1. Michael & Janferie Brownridge:
      Thanks for your remarks Leighton and from all of the Thomas’. You are all being wonderful in your support to us. We have many happy family gatherings to remember the fun times e.g., the hot, tropical Christmas Day at Glen Waverley when the constant rain water had pooled in the cover between house and carport and the clever young boys (will not name names but guess who) poked the broom up and the cascade of water drenched many!!!

  4. A happy beautiful soul that we were so lucky to have known. Your heart lives on in your beautiful children and I know you will be the sparkling star shining brightly down guiding them and protecting them for all of time.

  5. What a lovely tribute. What an amazing partner and father he was. Loved all the pics and family movies.
    Sending sincere and heartfelt condolences to you Tammy, Shakima, Zane and to Scott’s family. Thank you for sharing, and so sorry i couldnt be there at this sad and terrible time. Your all in my thoughts and am here for you.

    Much love to you all. RIP Scott

    Love Sandra Del Buono

  8. Such devastating news Tammy.

    Sending you, Debs and the rest of the family big hugs.

    You all spoke beautifully and although I never met Scott, I feel I know him a little more now. He has left an incredible legacy.

    Wishing you all a long, happy and healthy life.

    No words seem appropriate……

    Love Steve

  10. So saddened by your tragic loss Scott Bowie, you were a wonderful human being. Tammy thank you for sharing your last moments with us all.

  11. Dearest Tammy , kids and to Scott’s family . The speeches today were truely spoken from the heart . I didn’t know Scott well but it was clear he meant so much to everyone knew him because of his warm , caring and positive nature . I am so terribly sorry for your sudden and tragic loss . Be strong x

  12. Dear Tammy, Shakima, Zane and Scott’s family,

    Our condolences to you and your family. We are very sorry for your loss. We wish we could have been there for you all. We are thinking of you. Stay strong.

    Love you all dearly,
    Marise, Steve and family

  13. Dearest Tammy, Shakima, Zane, and to all the Brownridge and Cantoni family. We hope that the happy memories will help carry you through the difficult times ahead. We will miss Scott’s smile, good humour, and excellent TV series recommendations. You are never far from our thoughts. XX

  14. My condolences to Tammy, Shakima, Zane and the family. Scott made working at MCEC a delight. I feel privileged to have known him. Whenever we had the chance to grab a quick coffee and talk about nonsense it always made my day a little bit better. You were so kind and generous with an incredibly infectious laugh. I am going to miss your friendship.

    Vale Scott.

  15. Dear Tammy, Shakima and Zane
    What an amazing man Scott was , his farewell was such a special insight into his incredible talent , his love of life and his gift of giving. No words can express the loss for you and your extended family. I hope in time your wonderful memories and his legacy he has left , will somehow sustain you. Tammy, you were so brave today and Scott would have been so proud of you all. We send our love, prayers and sympathy from the bottom of our hearts. Shirley and Graeme

  16. A beautiful service, for a very loved man. Still does not make sense that he is not here. Condolences to Tammy, Shakima, Zane and all the family. XX

    1. Hello Nicole,
      How lovely to receive your message. You know our family very well from school days. Thank you very much

  17. Tammy and children, and Scottie’s whole tribe, devastating beyond belief. I am so heartbroken for you…
    He was so loved.
    Such a brilliant human.
    So many wonderful stories and memories of my time with him.
    Already miss you Squirrel..Froggie signing off. xxx

  18. ‘Scort’ we shared our St Kilda ‘dog days’ together – with Maggie and Tamis our dogs, lots of walks and afternoons at dog park and coffees and cryptic crosswords which you patiently tried to teach me but I didn’t have the gift like you.

    You were a wordsmith, a wizard and a whizz with moving parts – you also had the knack for seeing inside people’s hearts. You made me and everyone in your world laugh like a kid. And Tamis ADORED you – he would greet you by placing his paws on your shoulders and you would both hug like long lost brothers. He knew you were one of the good ones – he knew he could trust you. Animals know.

    When Tamis made his debut on Playschool – you were the one who looked after him while he waited by the camera to make his appearance. Thank you ‘Scort’ for being the most wonderful friend to me, to Tamis and blessing us all with your contagious smile, love and twinkly eyes. Travel well my friend – see you again in the next one.

    Sending so much love and strength to Tammy, Shakima and Zane and to Scott and Tammy’s family.

  19. I recently saw Scott improvise during a gig. It was a pure delight to watch him go into character. For a few minutes I could see the whole room (which was a pretty tough crowd I must say) become utterly mesmerised by him. He had a spark that is rare amongst actors. It was so lovely to see that spark flying off him in those videos with you Tammy, Shakima and Zane. You were so clearly the brightest light in his world. I’m so deeply sorry for the loss the three of you must feel. My heart is with you and his family and dearest ones. What an incredible man you had in your lives.

  20. What a wonderful service. Feel very privileged to have been able to be there remotely. If we could have, David and I would have been in the Holden in a flash and made our way to Melbourne. My heart is broken for all of you. I send my love and deepest condolences to all the family. Scott was so liked. So loved. I first met him at NIDA and we became firm friends for all time despite being in different years. Later, David and I lived with Scottie in Bellevue Hill during the Lion King days. (David had become friendly with Scott, independently of me, before we met and they had become great mates) Scott’s sense of fun, playfulness and cheeky wit were infectious. Bright eyed and mischievous. A kindred spirit for my similarly impish self and a fine match for Davey’s wicked humour. A house of love and laughter. We even had a Christmas Day together one year. Such a special memory. He was also very dear, heartfelt and a big ‘softie’. Always eager to help. Present. His machine gun rapid peels of laughter fill my ears now. I can see him walking down the hallway, flanny shirt on, turning to flash me a grin, showing me his wonderful hands covered in car grease. Gone too soon. I send love and strength and laughter to all his beautiful family.

    Sending huge hugs and warmth and wish I could be there. Scott was so much a part of my life. My youth. Our youths. When our hearts were touched with fire.

    Much love, Michelle Doake and David Hynes

  21. Heartfelt condolences to Tammy, Shakima, Zane, and all of Scott’s family and loved ones. I had the luck to briefly share a house with Scotty in mid-90’s Sydney – I’ll never forget what a bright light he was. Thank you for sharing this beautiful tribute today.

  22. Dear Tammy and family, my thoughts and prayers are with you. It feels so surreal. I felt so privileged being part of that service and was laughing and crying at memories of that beautiful man. The love you guys shared was palpable. Tammy, I hope and pray for you to be held in this moment.. held through this incredible pain you must be feeling. Shakima and Zane, your daddy was AMAZING, SWEET, LOVING, CRAZILY FUNNY, TALENTED, DEEP, A TRULY BEAUTIFUL HUMAN BEING.. and I’m not at all surprised, from what I heard and saw, wonderful dad!! I’m going to carry him in my heart fully and share his spirit of love and laughter with my family too. All my love. Andy Rodoreda xxoo

    1. Thank you Andrew for your thoughtful words above and thank you for the years of friendship you had with our son Scott. I saw you most recently as a truly scary character and although you were acting, you were most definitely were believable. ”Brake a leg”.

  23. I’m honoured to have had a part of your final performance Scott, you were great, as usual. I’m disappointed we didn’t get to have a second season, but the first was excellent, so there’s that 🙂

    I extend all of the love the I have to everyone hurting. I love you all.

    1. Hello again Alex and just remember all the fun times you had with Scott. Thank you for your kind thoughts above.

  24. Talented, quick witted and clever, a wonderful man.
    Such a big heart and a big smile.
    Scott, I shall miss you. RIP x
    Sending lots of love to Tammy, Shakima, Zane and Scott’s family

    1. Thank you Ray and Nancy for all the years we have known you as supportive neighbours. We had fun times and this is what we keep remembering.

  25. Life will not be the same without you Scott. You were always the entertainer to all around you. You left an imprint in our hearts, forever missed, forever loved. x

    1. Andy, Bridget, Abi and Tom, thank you for your words of sympathy which we very much appreciate.

  26. Dearest darling Scottie,
    There is no way to fully describe the joy and succour your friendship has given me over the years. My heart is wrenched and broken with the sudden loss of your bright light in this world. Time and again, your positivity, wisdom, humanity and ever ready wit warmed my heart and soothed my soul, and I will hold the comfort of your friendship forever close. You are the most beautiful soul, and the very best of humankind.
    Your family was your world and I remember the huge smile on your face and the love and happiness radiating from you when you spoke of Tammy, Shakima and Zane. My heart, love and deepest sympathies are with your beautiful family. There are no words that could possibly ease your pain, but know that Scottie cherished you above all else, and you brought as much joy and love into his life as he did to yours.
    Travel well my dear friend – you will always be loved, celebrated and deeply missed.

    1. Tasma you knew Scott well in the shared house while at NIDA. I know you had many fun times and probably more so because no parents were around! Thank you for your support and friendship and the words you wrote (above) regarding our son. You are a brilliant actress and we follow your progress whenever we can, particularly recently in “Mystery Road”.

  27. Oh Scotty, the world has lost such a beautiful man. I have wonderful memories of your cheekiness and spark as we were growing up. You found your thing and did life so well. Those videos & pics, Tammy, of you, scott and the kids at home, how very special. Tammy, Auntie Jan, Uncle Michael and Jacq, such a massive hole is left but beautiful Scott’s sense of playfulness & absolute joy de vivre will return to your homes and live on thru you and all of us, it is too strong and irrepressible! Farewell Scott xxxxxx

    1. Dear Caro, thank you and all the family for the magical times we have had, and will continue to have with our families. Your family have a fight ahead and we are all cheering for you and particularly Katie. Much love.

    1. Jenny you are so kind and good and we value your friendship very much. Thank you.

  28. Dear Jan and Michael
    We are truly saddened by the loss of your wonderful son Scott. We recall his early days at the gardens where he displayed so much enthusiasm. Our deepest sympathy goes to you both and the family. Rod & Jan.

    Hakuna Matata!

  32. Ahh Scottie, I just couldn’t believe the news when I learnt that we’d lost you so tragically and so soon. I’ll forever remember you from our NIDA days. So effortlessly funny it was as if comedy and improv were just in your DNA. You just always had me in stitches. Ahhh, what a loss. Thank you to your family and loved ones for sharing such a beautiful service. Rest in power Scottie. I’ll hold you in love and light. xxx

    1. Hi Rachael, the lady with the beautiful speaking voice. Thanks for your thoughts shared about Scott. We are devastated and so sad for Tammy, Shakima and Zane as well as ourselves. Live goes on and we all will too, remembering Scott’s funny voices when reading stories or telling jokes and laugh when thinking of those times.

  33. Scott Bowie, as I will always know you… Kindhearted, gentle, polite, caring, genius… the list goes on but, as I say all of these wonderful thing about you all I can is… “Wow, no stop… you’re too kind, really? You’re just too kind… no actually, don’t stop keep it coming ” And that’s how I remember this man who was taken too soon! I will always have a soft spot for you Scotty, and my love goes to Tammy, Shakima and Zane ❤️
    He will always be around you and will play lots of jokes to show he’s never left!
    Eternal love to you all

    I hope we can catch up again in better times before too long,
    Peter Cairney

    1. Hi Peter and Mary we wish to thank you for your comments above and glad you were able to view the funeral service to our son Scott. We believe he would have loved the send-off and particularly all the fantastic tributes from family, friends, workmates and just everyone. Scott was a happy, optimistic and positive person and always looked on the fun side of life.

  45. Dear Tammy, Shakima, Zane, and family. I am so sorry for your loss. I didn’t know Scott well but had a sense of him in this beautiful service. It is clear to see how much happiness, laughter and love he brought to your lives. My son Joel wanted to watch the service with me, and he said “he sounds like a super hero”. My heart goes out to you. I wish you a long life, strength, courage and lots of love. Please know we are all here for you, and don’t hesitate to be in contact if you would like to talk or I can be of any help. love Suzette

How lucky and blessed you were to share your life with a special person. Hugs to you and your beautiful children.

  48. Such honest and beautiful words from those that knew him so well and a beautiful montage that caught his infectious smile and personality.
    I was honoured to know you Scott, even if it was for just a short time at the MCEC.
    I am sure he will watch over you all and ensure that laughter and happiness does indeed return to your home.

  49. Will miss your contagious smile and warm heart Scott. May you RIP

    You will be sorely missed, and my sincere condolences to your family.
    RIP buddy.

    Barry and Nerida

    1. Dear Barry and Nery,
      Thank you for being the wonderful friends you are. For coping with a “Buggar of a kid”‘ because young Scott did go ”exploring” however, fortunately we always found him! Scott and Richard’s family movie you tell me are showing just what they go up to in jumping off hay bales and driving around the paddock in a car. So pleased now they didn’t end up delinquents!!
      We wish Katie all the very best we can wish anyone and send our love to you all.
      Thank you also Richard and Lou and all you lovely family. M & I are there for you all, always.

  73. Dear Tammy, Shakima and Zane,
    Our hearts goes out to you on your loss. Wishing you all a long life.
    Sending love and hugs
    Alon, Shelley and Nathan x

  74. Watching over here in NZ. I worked at the MCEC for 5 years and am simply gutted I will never get to see Scotty again. Sending big love to the Family

  75. Dearest Tammy, I’m so sorry for your loss. Your words were so beautiful. I can only imagine what you and the children are going through at the moment. Scott was such a lovely man and I understand why you were happiest at home. Take care of your hearts.
    All our love,
    Amanda, Andrew, Seren and Bryn.

    1. Sending love and deep condolences to the family and friends (of which there are so, so many) of dear Scottie. I had the luck and glorious hilarious pleasure of touring with him in TOI Jake and Pete back in the late 90s. We all laughed around the country and I still have the tricycle Scottie made from bunderberg ginger beer bottle tops. Bless you Scott you talented warm kind man with the biggest of hearts. Blessed Be.

  77. Dear Tammy and family,
    Thinking of you all and your terrible loss. I had the pleasure of sharing a flat for a time with Scottie during Coogee days. Sensitive and forever fascinated with the world, there were so many times that I couldn’t even breathe because he was relentlessly hilarious. Car whisperer and bestest bloke, he will be terribly missed by all that met him.

    Much love to you all at this time.
    Tim Smith and family.

  86. Dearest Scotty/Scottifer,
    We will miss you mate. Your smile, your appalling dad jokes, the fun and laughter you brought to the office every day. We will miss the “grumpy old man club” chats every morning. We hope Tammy, Shakima and Zane get to know the incredible legacy you have left behind and the love that so many people have for you. You were a genuine human being with a soul of gold.
    We will all go on in a world just a little dimmer without your shining light.

    Rest in peace dear friend,

    1. Dear Stuart, Suzanne; Nick and Nancy, thank you for your memories and words of support regarding Scott. He was a fun person and at times I wanted him to be serious and he would continue to make me smile. All he needed to do was talk back to me — nicely, but speaking with an accent and I would always be disarmed. Cheeky person but lovely!! Thank you Draffs’ very much for your kindness.

  105. Dearest auntie Jan and uncle Michael, our thoughts are with you at this time, I do feel fortunate to have been able to spend so many good times with Scott growing up, we had a lot of great times that I’ll never forget. Love always Richard, Helen and the girls

My love, thoughts & prayers are with you both. RIP dear Scott. Take care & God bless. Christine xx

    2. Christine that day you called about our Victorian lock-down you received a shock I know just like the day you called me with similar news. “‘Not funny Jan”.

  106. Rest In Peace Scott. I will always remember working with you at the MCEC, you were always such a pleasure to work with. Thinking of your family at this difficult time.
