Obituary of Dr. Jim Watterson

Please share a memory of Dr. Jim to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

February 2, 1948 – December 25, 2022 

Dr. James (Jim) Watterson passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, December 25, 2022, after a brief illness. He is survived by family, colleagues, and friends, both old and new. 

Jim, we will miss your sense of humor and the insights that you always brought to our conversations. You shared both your broad world interests and your delight in life’s simple pleasures. You listened quietly and you watched out for other people. We thought that you would be with us for many more years and your passing is our loss.

Dr. Ruth Dickson, Jim’s wife and the ‘love of his life’ passed away on March 17, 2020. In Ruth’s and his memory, he asked for a simple city park bench that faced the mountains. Look for the plaque:

Loved, and were loved.

Jim requested no public celebration. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Salvation Army, 1731 29th Street SW Calgary, AB, T3C 1M6, online at www.salvationarmy.ca, or by phone at 403-410-1112 or a charity of your choice.
