Robert Watt Death, Obituary – On December 2, 2022, when Robert John Ross Watt passed away at the age of 86, God gave him the gift of eternal rest as a reward for all of his years of faithful service. Alexander and Genevieve Watt, Bob Watt’s parents, welcomed him into the world in the city of Toronto, which is located in Canada. After attending both St. Michael’s College School in Toronto and the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, where he was a defenseman on the hockey team and earned his degree, he received his Master of Business Administration from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor.
Prior to that, he attended St. Michael’s College School in Toronto. Bob was honored by being selected on the All-American team, by being inducted into the Hall of Fame of both the Dekers Blue Line Club and the Michigauma Senior Men’s Honorary, and by receiving an honorable mention as one of the best 50 players in the history of Michigan ice hockey. Bob was the captain of the Wolverine hockey team on two separate occasions during his time at University of Michigan. Bob loved the time he got to spend with his family, friends, and teammates talking about the good old days when they all played hockey together.
He was grateful for the opportunities that hockey had given him. During the summer vacation, Bob and Stella Georgette Chretien were both playing in a fast-pitch league softball game in Timmins, Canada. Bob lovingly referred to Stella Georgette Chretien as “Red,” and he called her “Babes.” Bob and Stella Georgette Chretien went on to start dating. They wed in 1959 and began their life together by establishing themselves first in Michigan, where Bob worked for General Motors, and then later in Ohio, where they owned drive-thru firms. They began their lives together by establishing themselves in these two states.
