It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Lewis (Eddie) Edward Watson on Saturday, May 8, 2021 at St. Joseph’s Hospital. He was the beloved husband of 42 years to Lynn Watson (Meilko). The much loved father to Mark, Thomas and Leanne (Adam). Cherished Papa to Hudson and Hayden. Predeceased by his father John Watson. Devoted son to Ruth Watson. Sorrowfully missed by his best friend and brother Phil Watson, sister-in-law Diana and their three children, John, James and Jasmine. Eddie will be lovingly remembered by sister-in-law Judy and husband Jim Gallagher and sister-in-law Karen Meilko. He will always remain in the hearts of many nieces, nephews, great-nephews and cousins. After 60 years of living in Dundas it’s hard to find someone who doesn’t have a great memory of him. Eddie always jumped at the opportunity for community involvement. He coached baseball, soccer, basketball and even participated in competitive dance competitions with the other parents. Some of Eddie’s passions included organizing and playing in “The HAFA Big One” golf tournament, High Rollers/HAFA softball and winning O.F.S.S.A. basketball for Parkside High School in 1975. He worked at M&A Candy, Chubb Securities and Bell Canada. His main passion was to bring back life to the Hamilton Air Force Club where he held presidency from 2016 to present. The Hamilton Air Force Club was ultimately a place for him and his friends, who meant so much to him, to socialize. A private family Service will take place on Saturday at 2:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family would welcome donations to the Hamilton Air Force Club at 128 King Street East, Dundas ON L9H 1N5.
