In loving memory ~
We are sad to announce the passing of Edward Ernest Watts of Falkland. Ed was born in Enderby and raised in Vernon, on Silver Star Road. After leaving high school, Ed moved to Prince George where he had a lengthy career in the steel industry.
Ed was predeceased by his parents Albert and Mary Watts, his brother Maurice Watts, his sister, Nola Pfrimmer, a baby sister Beatrice, his precious daughter Jamie Rene Watts (Samkow) and his second wife, Patricia Fay Nelson (Watts).
Ed is survived by his 12 brothers and sisters and many nieces, nephews, and great nieces and nephews. He is also survived by his granddaughter Tanesha Megan Watts and great-granddaughter Olivia Mary Watts of Prince George. Ed is lovingly remembered by his partner, Lea Gail Parkhurst. They had several wonderful camping trips together including winter RVing in Mexico.
Ed loved his family, and he was a loyal friend. Ed was soft-spoken, easygoing, and a hard-working man. He would help out anyone he could. Ed loved to fish and go camping. From the time he was a teenager he loved cars and almost always had a collector car in his workshop. He was often nicknamed "Fast Eddy".
Ed will be cremated, and a celebration of Ed's life will be held at a later date.
