It is with extremely heavy hearts that the family of Dwayne Douglas Watt of Cold Lake, Alberta announces his sudden passing in St. Albert on Monday, December 27, 2021 at the age of 69 years.
Dwayne was born and raised in Cold Lake and loved being by the water. He was an amazing husband, devoted father and wonderful grandfather. He truly was our hero and mentor, and just like his stature, he loved large. His big, bear hugs set him apart from others and became a welcomed comfort to all whose lives he encountered. We loved that he was a man of principle, integrity and strong convictions. Dwayne was a friend to everyone; he fed the hungry and lent a hand to those in need. His unique sense of humor, along with his incredible gift of storytelling, was so enjoyed at any gathering of friends, family or co-workers.
He had a fulfilling career as a Power Engineer in our local oil industry for almost 40 years. During this time, many relationships were fostered; he was a great mentor and left a lasting impact on his co-workers.
Dwayne is lovingly survived by his wife of 47 years: Melanie; daughter: Olivia (Gordon) Clarke; two sons: Mike (Cristie) Watt, Daniel (Jessica) Watt; six grandchildren: Victoria Clarke, Charlotte and William Watt, Dominic, Aria and Declan Watt; three sisters: Thelma (John) Lapointe, Charlotte (Charlie) Kilcup, Tammy (Denis) Letellier; Aunts: Shirley Barnes, Irene Harps; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, extended family and friends.
Dwayne was predeceased by his parents: Clayton and Ilene Watt.
A Celebration of Dwayne’s life will be held at a later date.
