It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of our friend and colleague, Sheldon Watson, on Sunday, November 26, 2017. Sheldon has served the Town of Coalhurst as a councillor since October 2013 and was appointed Deputy Mayor in October 2017. He was committed to the growth and well-being of our community and contributed countless hours of service ensuring public needs were honoured. Quick in his humour and always positive, Sheldon made every meeting and task enjoyable. Despite having cancer, Sheldon remained an active member of Town Council and attended as many events as possible. Our heartfelt sympathies are extended to his wife, Melody, and children, Emily and Jessica. Sheldon made a difference in our community and although he has passed away, he will not be forgotten.
As soon as the Town knows the wishes of the family and the plans for Sheldon’s memorial service we will let you know.
