The funeral has been held for a popular West Midlands hospital chaplain who died in a car crash.
Ian Scott, from Droitwich, was killed on July 18 when his car collided with another car on the A4103 just hours before his 64th birthday.
His wife, Sue, was also seriously injured in the crash and suffered a fractured pelvis. She has since had a stroke and was released from hospital only to attend the service.
The driver of the other car is on police bail while enquiries into the crash continue.
The service was conducted by the Rev Sheila Banyard, Rector of Droitwich, at St Peter-de-Witton Parish Church.
Zoe Scott paid tribute to her father, the Rev Scott, describing him as a wonderful husband, father and grandfather.
She said: “He was the master of good advice. And although we didn’t always seem enamoured with this advice at the time, we all knew that it was the most balanced and measured that we could get. I hope that Dad can see now that we almost always acted on his words and that we’ll do our best to be as wise as him in the future. My Dad always gave so much time, in fact as it turned out not just to us, but to many others, too. He always had time to play when I was little, or to help with homework.”
The Bishop of Worcester, John Inge, also paid tribute: “Ian was a fine priest who carried God’s love to all whom he served. He was a true pastor who had a particular calling to be alongside people in pain, illness and grief.
As well as his wife and daughter the Rev Scott leaves a son, Jason, and three grandchildren, Hannah, Charlie and Mac.
He was chaplain at Evesham Community Hospital and worked in similar roles in Kidderminster, Redditch and Worcester. Along with his wife, he was also involved in the local branch of Mind, the mental health charity.
Formerly he had worked in computing and the rubber industry.
