Births Deaths and Marriages: 5 Jun 2019
OBITUARY - Comrade Charles MCWATT

Charles William McWatt

Charles William (Bud) McWatt passed away peacefully on May 29th, 2019 at Cambridge Memorial Hospital, in his 91st year.

Bud will be sadly missed by his loving wife of 65 years, Ramona (nee Bird), his daughter Sharon Caron (Brad), Rick (Jacquie) and Robert (Kim) and his grandchildren Peter Caron (Marie), Laura Pottie (Jason), Richard, Sydney and Elias McWatt and great-grandchildren Carter and Emilia Pottie.

Bud was born on February 16, 1929, in Fort Frances, Ontario to Charles and Cicely McWatt.  Starting as a youngster and into his married life, Bud was active with the Fort Frances Town Band. He took great pride in playing the Last Post to honour those that had passed.

Comrade Bud served in the Royal Canadian Artillery from 1943 to 1946 and was a proud member of the Royal Canadian Legion since he joined at 18, a Member of Branch 530 since 1978.

Bud worked for the LCBO in Fort Frances and was transferred to Glencoe in 1962. As a field auditor, he moved to Waterloo Region in 1977 until his retirement on August 31, 1988. Most recently, Bud resided in Cambridge at Heritage Meadows and Fairview Mennonite Home.

Bud had a passion for woodworking, which benefited everyone he knew, especially his family. Children, grandchildren and many friends all have something he made, from a playing-card holder to full kitchen cupboards and bedroom furniture.

Friends are invited to share their memories of Charles with his family during a visitation at the Erb & Good Family Funeral Home, 171 King St. S., Waterloo on Saturday, June 8, 2019 from 10 – 10:45 a.m. A Memorial Service will follow at 11:00AM in the chapel of the funeral home. Reception to follow. Interment will follow at Parkview Cemetery, Waterloo.

In lieu of flowers, condolences for the family and donations to Fairview Mennonite Home or Cambridge Memorial Hospital may be arranged through the funeral home at www.erbgood.com or 519-745-8445.  

The family would like to thank the staff at Cambridge Memorial Hospital and Fairview Mennonite Home for their care and compassion.
