<div itemprop="description">Carroll Edmund Patrick Watson aka “Duke” <br>June 15, 1937 – August 16, 2016 <br> <br>Peacefully at Bridgepoint Hospital on Tuesday August 16, 2016 surrounded by his loving family, he passed on to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Beloved husband of Maudrie (Lolie) for 43 years. Loving father of Marie, June and Karl, Brother to Merle and Glen, Grandfather to Joash, Elijah-resting with his Grandfather, Ariel, Karmyn and Kaiya. He will be sadly missed by his loving extended family, friends and church congregation in Canada, the USA, England and Jamaica. Confident that he is resting with the Lord, we look forward to seeing him again. <br> <br>Born in St. Elizabeth Jamaica, he left for England at a young age where he conducted trains for a short time before returning to sell life insurance and later opened a car dealership in Kingston, Jamaica. He met his wife Maudrie at 29 and they dated for 8 years before marrying. During their courtship he obtained his teaching degree at the Caribbean Academy of Sciences, Jamaica (CASJ) and moved to Manhattan, New York for one year where he completed his studies in auto mechanics at Roberts Technical Trade School. Following their marriage in 1973 he and Maudrie moved to Montreal where they settled to start their family. They later moved to Toronto where he attended Centennial College and was also the Centre Manager for Mr. Transmission in Markham. He was an entrepreneur who was passionate about auto mechanics, rearing cattle on the family farm, and teaching industrial arts at Maud McLeod High School and Maggoty High School in Jamaica, from which he retired in 1999 at age 62. <br> <br>True life partners for a total of 51 years, he and wife Maudrie enjoyed the last few years between Canada and Jamaica spending time visiting with their grandchildren, family and friends. <br> <br>The family will receive family and friends at McEachnie Funeral Home (28 Old Kingston Road, Ajax) on Saturday August 27 from 10 to 12 p.m. A funeral service will follow at 12 p.m. He will be laid to rest in Whispering Pines at Pine Ridge Memorial Gardens in Ajax. <br> <br> <br>Please sign the Guest book of condolences above.
