It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Brian Watmough of Hillcrest Mines, AB on February 14, 2021. He was 69 years of age.
Brian was born on February 23, 1951 in Calgary, AB to parents, Lloyd and Margaret Watmough. He grew up to be a focused and hardworking young man who found a career as a screen printer. When his health made it necessary to retire from the printing industry, he was able to turn his talent and passion for carpentry into his second career. On December 7, 1984, Brian married his soulmate, Roxeena. The happy couple went on to be blessed with thirty-six years of marriage and countless wonderful memories.
Brian was an avid fly-fisherman and he also enjoyed camping. He and Roxeena could often be found at the Beauvais Lake Campground even before they moved to the Crowsnest Pass in 2003. Brian’s kind, loving disposition was evident in everything he did, and his strength of character was an inspiration to all who knew him. He will be forever remembered with great love and respect.
Left to mourn his passing and celebrate his life is his wife, Roxeena Watmough of Hillcrest Mines, AB; his brother, James (Becky) Watmough of High River, AB; his sister, Donna Watmough of Calgary, AB; his nephew, Cameron Watmough; as well as his extended family and many friends, especially Theresa and Les Thomas – there are no words to express how much your friendship and assistance are appreciated.
He was predeceased by his father, Lloyd Watmough; his mother, Margaret Watmough (Née: Birse); and his nephew, Ian Watmough.
With respect for Brian’s wishes, no funeral service will be held. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations will be gratefully accepted by the Crowsnest Pass Health Foundation “Greatest Need” (PO Box 455, Blairmore, AB T0K 0E0), or by the Heart and Stroke Foundation (www.heartandstroke.ca).
