William Arthur ‘Bill’ Watkins

March 12, 1938 – January 26, 2021
A life well-lived is a precious gift; Bill, or Uncle Bill, was such a legacy.
He passed away peacefully at the age of 82, on January 26, 2021; comforted by his wife of 60 years – Marjorie, and close friends Don and Darla deGouveia.
He was born March 12, 1938 to parents John and Marie Watkins – one of 14 children in a blended family.
The jobs he held and his service in the Canadian Army enhanced the skills he demonstrated to family and friends throughout his life. He was an amazing woodworker, an outstanding mechanic, and a remarkable “Mr. Fix-It.”
His passion was golf, especially passing on his love of the game to youth, family and friends. Any chance to play a round, go to the driving range, or tee-off was taken!
Warm thanks are extended to the staff at Evergreen Baptist Care Home in White Rock for their compassionate care. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please support UGC Junior Golf Society or The War Amps.
We know he is golfing Heaven’s fairway – forever in our hearts. Obituary
