Scott Mitsuru Tanaka

August 10, 1975 ~ January 11, 2022 (age 46)


   It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of Scott Tanaka of Coleman, AB on January 11, 2022 at the Crowsnest Pass Health Care Centre, Blairmore, AB due to complications of Covid-19.  He was 46 years of age.

   Scott was an incredibly smart, outgoing person.  He was always up to date on the latest technology and newest gadgets, and was a talented website designer.  Scott had a deep affection for all dogs and in return they were drawn to him.  As a popular DJ, Scott was able to merge two of his loves – music and socializing.  He was happiest when spending time with his family or countless friends.  Scott was well-known for his huge heart, infectious laugh, and smile that could light up a room.  He was caring, compassionate and generous, and was always ready to selflessly help others.  Life is measured in memories, not years, and precious, wonderful memories of Scott will remain with us forever.

   Left to mourn his passing and celebrate his life are his parents, Jane and Keith Tanaka of Coleman, AB; his brother, Dean (Jill) Tanaka of Fernie, BC; his nephew, Isaac Tanaka; his niece, Ashley Tanaka; as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends.

   A private family service will be held at a later date.  In lieu of flowers, memorial donations will be gratefully accepted by the Crowsnest Pass Health Foundation “Greatest Need” (PO Box 455 Blairmore, AB T0K 0E0).  Condolences may be registered at

Fantin’s Funeral Chapel entrusted with the arrangements. (403) 562-8555
