WATTS, Ray­mond Wil­liam

The Hamilton Spectator - - Classified -

It is with pro­found sad­ness we an­nounce the pass­ing of Ray­mond Wil­liam Watts on De­cem­ber 5th at Parkview Home in Stouf­fville, On­tario. Ray was in his 94th year. Lov­ing son of Wil­liam and Doris (pre­de­ceased). Lov­ing and cher­ished hus­band of Doreen (pre­de­ceased). Devoted and lov­ing fa­ther to Michael (pre­de­ceased) and David; fa­ther-in-law to Made­lyn and Shona; and beloved grand­fa­ther to An­drew and Ni­cholas. Ray will be fondly missed by his friends, and his neigh­bors of Glen­carry Av­enue. Ray was a sin­cere, kind, and won­der­ful hu­man be­ing. Born in Hamilton in 1924, Ray lived in east end Hamilton all of his life. He was a hum­ble World War II vet­eran serv­ing in the Royal Cana­dian Navy off Canada’s east coast. Ray and Doreen raised their fam­ily on Glen­carry Av­enue on the edge of the Red Hill Bowl. Doreen could not have asked for a more lov­ing hus­band and Michael and David could not have wished for a more won­der­ful fa­ther. Ray was a long-term mem­ber of Coronation Park Bap­tist Church and later at Pi­o­neer Me­mo­rial Church. Ray spent many of his re­tire­ment years at his cot­tage in Prince Ed­ward County with Doreen and their friends. A very spe­cial and heart­felt thank you to Ray’s friends and care­givers at Parkview Home for their lov­ing sup­port in Ray’s fi­nal years. A cre­ma­tion has taken place and a me­mo­rial will be planned for both Ray and Doreen in the Spring at Wood­lands Ceme­tery in Burling­ton. In lieu of flow­ers, Ray would have ap­pre­ci­ated a do­na­tion to Parkview Home in Stouf­fville or to the On­tario Hu­mane So­ci­ety.
