WATSON, Brian Bruce

April 7, 1968 - Dec. 26, 2013

It is with great sadness that we share with you the unexpected passing of our son, brother, uncle and dad, Brian Watson, from pneumonia.

Brian was born in Chemainus and raised in Ladysmith, Aristazable Island, and Ocean Falls and was very proud of his Welsh heritage. He was a talented artist, carpenter and metal worker and as he was known to say “I am a maker of things”. He was a generous man, helping others however he could, whenever he could. Forever a tease he had a quick grin and wicked sense of humour. A devoted father, his daughter was the light of his life and he was so proud of her accomplishments.

Brian is predeceased by his grandparents Cecilia and Bill White of Chemainus, Irene and Joe Watson, his father Bruce Watson, uncles Keith and John Power and aunt Linda Pilon. Survived by his daughter Koa, mom Bridget (Gord), sisters Brooke and Tracy (Ken), nephew Matt Matanovic, several aunts and uncles and many cousins here and in Wales. He will also be deeply missed by the Planedin and Whittal families, special friend Gail and many, many friends in Victoria.

A gathering of Brian’s friends and extended families was held on Sunday, Jan. 12th at 12 noon at 1164 North Park Street, Victoria.
