In memory of
WATSON, James "Jay" Colin December 14, 1945 – January 26, 2017 Jay passed away quickly and peacefully after contracting pneumonia/influenza in late January 2017, with his wife and sister by his side. Jay was born in New Westminster to Kathleen and Alex Watson. Jay had so many great adventures in his life. His early 20s were spent in the Canadian Navy, stationed in Victoria, where he and his "child bride" Teddy started their family. He moved his family to Alberta, where he managed to talk himself into a rough neck job in the oil field and from there his adventures took him to work around the world. He has touched lives and made friends everywhere from Iraq, Tunisia, the Ukraine, Indonesia, Australia, Afghanistan, to the United States and Canada. He was loved and will be missed by so many. He is survived by his wife Teddy; son Ben (Heatherly); daughters Catherine (Scott) and Tina; five incredible grandchildren; as well as his sister Susan Arman (Lanny) and her family. We will be having a "Celebration of Life" in the late Spring. In lieu of flowers, donations in Jay's name to the Heart & Stroke Foundation are appreciated.
