Obituary For Bryan Alan Watts

Age 68. Dartmouth formerly of Sudbury, Ontario.

It is with heavy hearts, the family of Bryan Watts announces his passing on January 4, 2022, in the Dartmouth General Hospital after a brief battle of Liver Cancer.

Bryan was born in Charlottetown, PEI in 1953 and was the son of the late Emma and Ernie Watts. He was a loving spouse for the past 24 years to Lorraine Hadley and is survived by his 3 children (previous marriage) Shauna, Allison, and Kyle and 6 grandchildren who reside in Alberta. As well as stepdaughter Lindsay Ings (Stephen), Step grandchildren Zachary, Noah, and Arabella (Sackville). Brothers, Gerry (Bev), Stewart (Roberta), Randy (Lisa), Sister Caroline and many nieces and nephews (all in Ontario).

Bryan was a military veteran, serving for 32+ years in the Canadian Armed Forces as an Aero Engine Technician and completed 2 tours of NATO. After retiring from the Armed Forces, Bryan was an active member of the Somme Legion (Branch #31), where he volunteered his time to many Legion functions. He was a generous man who welcomed company and loved when friends would stop by for a visit. Bryan was known for being an extremely talented handyman and could fix anything from appliances to a Jet engine. He enjoyed watching sports, walking his 2 dogs (Sky-Anne & Sirloin), a cold beer and sitting outside around a fire.

At this time there will be no public memorial service, however a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

    Lorraine and family: My deepest sympathies in your time of grief; I first met Bryan during my second posting to Shearwater (late 90's), while we both lived in the barracks and worked at 423 Sqn; shared many stories and laughs at the Mess and dining hall. He was a real 'aircraft mechanic' and he cared for the people on his crew; though we lost contact after our retirements, he is gone too soon; RIP my friend; Phil Cormier

    I worked with Bryan in 12 Wing Shearwater and we both worked in NDHQ Ottawa afterward. Bryan was great with appliances and helped me out a few times with some of my ancient heavy duty rattlers. I lost track of Bryan when he returned to Shearwater and I feel a sense of loss that he has passed. Another veteran gone too soon.
