Tributes have been paid to a Carnoustie man who was well known through his work with the Boys’ Brigade who has died aged 52.

Ken Scott, who also worked at Blackadders as an associate in their commercial property team, passed away suddenly on Monday.

Ken, who lived in the town, was born in 1961 and was educated at the University of Dundee.

He qualified with LLB (Hons) and DipLP in 1984 and was admitted as a solicitor in Scotland in 1985.

Following his training at Thornton Dickie & Brand, Ken became a solicitor at North East Fife District Council before moving to Edinburgh to join the Bank of Scotland’s legal team.

In 1990 he became an associate with Pagan Osborne Grace & Calders before joining Blackadders in 1994.

Ken spent 19 years as an associate at Blackadders, working in the busy commercial property unit.

In addition Ken spent many years as course organiser and tutor on the company and commercial course in the diploma in Legal Practice at the University of Dundee.

Sandy Meiklejohn, chairman of Blackadders, said: “Ken will be greatly missed by us all. He was not only held in high regard by his colleagues, clients and professional contacts for his technical, legal and business acumen but also for his sense of humour and friendliness – he was a true gentleman.

“Our thoughts go out to his wife Jane and daughters Claire and Louise at this very difficult time.”

The funeral will take place on Monday, October 21 at 2 p.m. at Carnoustie Parish Church then at Park Grove Crematorium, Friockheim.
