Obituary for Jim Watson

WATSON, James Kyle “Jim” –

Suddenly entered into rest on Wednesday, March 10th, 2021 in Picton, James Watson died at the age of 76. He was the beloved spouse of 56 years to Margaret, father to Kyle and walking companion to Holly the Beagle.

Jim was born in Glasgow, Scotland on November 4, 1944; Jim immigrated to Canada in 1967 and called Picton, Ontario home since 1969.

Although he retired, after 50 years of service, as an Electrical Coordinator from Lehigh Cement in 2019, he never stopped working. Undoubtedly, his one regret would be the great pile of wood left to be sawed, split and stacked.

Jim is resting at the Whattam-Hicks Funeral Home, 33 Main Street, Picton (613-476-2450). In keeping with Jim’s wishes, there will be no visitation or services. Cremation has taken place. If desired, donations to the Prince Edward County Memorial Hospital Foundation would be appreciated by the family. Online condolences at:
