Watson, William "Bill" John
It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of Bill on August 25th, 2021, at the age of 90. Dearly loved father and friend to Michele (David), David (Josee) and Stephen. Predeceased by Chrissie, his darling wife and best friend and by his infant daughter Sharron. Treasured Grandad to Bryan (Laine), Brent (Amanda), Liam (Adrienne), Kaileigh, Kevin, Timothy, Matthew and Michael. He was a very proud great-grandfather to Cora, Maisie, Ada and Anderson. Bill was truly a “gentle” man, kind, generous and always greeting people with a warm smile and an offer of single malt scotch. He helped to raise a loving and strong family and showed us the importance of love, kindness, laughter, generosity, and loyalty. Bill will be forever in our hearts. Friends may call at the Garden Chapel of Tubman Funeral Homes, 3440 Richmond Road (between Bayshore and Baseline Road), Ottawa on Thursday, September 2nd, 2021, from 1-3 p.m. and 5-7 p.m. Due to the current COVID restrictions, pre-registration for the visitation is required and can be made at www.tubmanfuneralhomes.com/obituary/William-Watson or by calling 613-722-6559
