Robert attended North Middle DHS in Parkhill Ontario as well as Niagara Horticulture School in Niagara Falls, Ontario.
After graduating Robert traveled to Europe working and hitch hiking, visiting Switzerland, Germany, and Holland.
Upon his return to Canada he visited with his family then traveled west to B.C…. his new home. Eventually he began his own gardening service “ Watson Gardening. » He worked in the lower mainland and Vancouver. Robert moved to Sechelt on the Sunshine Coast but continued to travel to the mainland for his clients.
Even though he ran a garden / landscaping business his hobby was his garden and flowers. He found it peaceful, rewarding and challenging in the same, shewing off those pesky cats and sometimes black bears. He would spend hours in his garden tending to his plants which were often exotic and sometimes challenging in but he always found a way for them to flourish. He created places for bees to live to help his garden. He had a connection with nature and it with him.
Bob loved baking, especially pies. He often donated his creations to the church bake sale so all could enjoy, but they didn’t last long once people knew Bob’s goodies were at the sale. Robert also loved making jams and preserves so he and his friends could enjoy his garden all year long. Robert also loved to travel… he’s been to Europe many times, Russia, Israel and Mexico to name a few counties. He didn’t just go for a vacation but to learn and understand the history, the culture and the language …and of course the food and especially the baked goods. He loved to read and would read about the various and culture of the region he would be traveling to.
Robert is very involved in his church, St. Hilda’s where he also attended to their gardens so all could enjoy his work.
Your friend circle always got bigger with Robert, a wonderful friend, very welcoming, generous to everyone he met.
He recently suffered from prostate cancer but he had some great friend to care and watch over him, he was always in their thoughts and prayers. Thanks Morri and Carol.
Robert also helped support a recent Syrian refuge fleeing the war in that country. He would often take them potted vegetables to enjoy.
“A garden is a love song between the created and the creator, the seeds are planted forever”
Robert had a great sense of the spirit of friendship, he would always send a note, drop by for tea…and treats, offer his services or just lend his ear and listen. But he also had a very good sense of humour, playing practical jokes on his friends and family. “At our age, we can hide our own Easter eggs, wait half an hour, and have no clue where we left them” ….typical Bob!
The family would like to thank the awesome staff at the Sechelt hospital, his physician Dr. Mentz, and all his friends at the church who, thanks to his friend Kevin, created a 24 hr visiting schedule while Bob was in the hospital so Bob new he was surrounded by friends and love.
Please make any donations on behalf of Robert Watson to the Canadian Cancer society and his church St. Hilda’s.

When I think of the ways that I’ve grown
I know I couldn’t a’ made it alone
I owe a lot to the sharing, caring, daring
Wonderful friends that I’ve known
I owe a lot to the sharing, caring, daring
Wonderful friends that I’ve known
Here we are all in one place, all gathered together
We’ve helped each other down this road whatever the weather
We have no need for pots of gold, for friends are a treasure
So hold hands, and sing it again
Oh, when I think of the ways that I’ve grown
I know I couldn’t a’ made it alone
I owe a lot to the sharing, caring, daring
Wonderful friends that I’ve known
I owe a lot to the sharing, caring, daring
Wonderful friends that I’ve known
Many years ago when I was feeling discouraged
I found that singing with my friends would fill me with courage
It’s a rough and rocky road we’re on, so when we get worried
With old friends, we’ll sing it again
Oh, when I think of the ways that I’ve grown
I know I couldn’t a’ made it alone
I owe a lot to the sharing, caring, daring
Wonderful friends that I’ve known
I owe a lot to the sharing, caring, daring
Wonderful friends that I’ve known
It looks like we might sing all night, but looks are deceiving
That old clock upon the wall says, soon I’ve got to be leaving
And though we go our separate ways, there’s no need for grieving
Just hold hands, and sing it again
Oh, when I think of the ways that I’ve grown
I know I couldn’t a’ made it alone
I owe a lot to the sharing, caring, daring
Wonderful friends that I’ve known
I owe a lot to the sharing, caring, daring
Wonderful friends that I’ve known
I owe a lot to the sharing, caring, daring
Wonderful friends that I’ve known
I owe a lot to the sharing, caring, daring
Wonderful friends that I’ve known
– Pete Seeger
