Watt JamesWATT, L. James, M.A., M.Ed.,  - 1949 - 2021  Unexpectedly after a brief hospitalization for complications from a new cancer, James Watt died on August 27, 2021.

As a loved brother, brother-in-law, uncle and friend, he was a kind, thoughtful, intelligent, and interesting person who will be sorely missed by all.

He is survived by his siblings, Dr. Judy Watt-Watson, Robert Watt, and John Watt, his brother-in-law, Dr. Peter Watson, and his many nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his parents Rev. Dr. J. Robert and Verna Watt.

James had a thirsty intellect and was sensitive to the needs of others. He enjoyed learning about differing cultures, and his empathy and support for people dealing with everyday challenges informed his community involvement.

He did graduate work in both history and philosophy, and after university worked for Legal Aid. He later obtained an M.Ed. and enjoyed teaching history and political science to high school students.

James was a thinker who read widely and was very engaged in world events and politics.

His knowledge and understanding of history and philosophy were broad and deep and stimulated many family discussions.

Discovering our ancestry was particularly important, and he skillfully unearthed key details about our Scottish past.

James experienced his first cancer diagnosis years ago, mid-way through his doctoral programme.

He faced the health challenges that followed, with courage and resilience.

He loved his family and family gatherings, cottage visits, his church, and Bracondale.

Thanks to the superb team of caregivers on 8A at the Toronto Western Hospital, who supported James and our family through this difficult time. Due to COVID restrictions, there will be a private family service.

Remembrances may be sent to Trinity St. Paul's United Church, 427 Bloor St. W, Toronto, ON M5S 1X7 or Princess Margaret Hospital, 610 University Ave., Toronto, ON M5G 2C1.
