It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Edward (Ed) Watson on Sunday, May 27, 2007 at the age of 82 years.
Ed was born on September 10, 1924 in Libau, MB. He worked for twenty-six years at Stelco in Edmonton, AB and took an early retirement in 1983. Ed and Helen moved to Calgary in 1995. Ed found great joy in nature and the outdoors; going on camping and fishing trips with his family. One of his life challenges was living with COPD for the last twenty years.
Besides his loving wife Helen, of fifty-four years, Ed is survived by one son Brian; two daughters and one son-in-law, Elaine and Colleen and Dave. Ed was predeceased by his parents Fred and Julia, a sister Eleanor and a brother Mike.
