Ward, James Bruce (Jim)
March 20, 1952 – December 4, 2010
After a brief battle with brain cancer, Jim gave up the fight in the early hours of December 4, 2010.
He is predeceased by his father Stanley James Ward and his mother Ruth Irene Ward (Miller). Jim will be forever remembered and loved by his sister Carol Melko (Paul) and brothers Jon (Jack) Ward (Kim), Tim Ward (Gwen), and Ronald Paul Ward.
Jim was a sweet, kind, gentle man. He left us memories which will last a life time. Jim also had a soft spot in his heart for his nieces Jade, Nicole, Lacey, Laura and Sarah, plus Jade’s daughter Avery. Jim had one nephew, Matthew Melko who is married to Jennifer and are proud parents of Keslyn and Jacob whom Jim adored.
Over the years, Jim drove transport trucks all across North America for several different haulage companies. Jim loved this work because it gave him the opportunity to see many parts of the country he so loved. On these long trips he met people from every walk of life and they opened their hearts and homes to him. Jim was also a skilled carpenter and always was ready with his tool belt to help family and friends in need of his services. Jim was a gifted artist, which many people didn’t realize until his stay in the hospital. The family surrounded his bed with many sketched he had drawn over his lifetime. Visitors, nurses and staff were in awe of his creations which will be on display at his service.
The family would like to thank Dr Beverly and all the staff on 3 East of St Peters Hospital for their kindness and compassion towards making Jim and his family as comfortable as possible during his brief stay. Jim also spent two months in the Nero-Science Ward (7 West) at the Hamilton General Hospital where he received excellent care.
We would also like to send a special thank you to Vicki Grant and Kelly Stukas who were OUR guardian angels that helped us through the difficult times. We cannot thank them enough.
Cremation has taken place according to Jim’s wishes. A Memorial Service will be held at BAY GARDENS FUNERAL HOME – “William J. Markey Chapel”, 947 Rymal Rd E, HAMILTON (905.574.0405) on Thursday, December 9, 2010 at 10am, with visitation from 9am – 10am.

Watts, Michael William 1955-2009
(Born February 3rd, 1955; Died April 13th, 2009)
Everyone who has been touched by cancer at some point is of the same thought: tragic that it has struck the people we love, but relief that their suffering has finally ceased. Michael fiercely battled cancer for nearly three years and did so with the dignity and strength of his character, in his home and with his wife and children by his side. He was at all times throughout his life a gentle man and remained so throughout this journey. He was loved by those who had the privilege of knowing him.
Michael is survived by the loves of his life: Madelyn Domenichetti (his wife of 28 years), his sons Andrew (22 years) and Nicholas (20 years). He was the devoted son of Raymond and Doreen and beloved brother of David and sister-in-law Shona MacLachlan; much loved brother-in-law of Lynda (nee Domenichetti) and Paul Marchese, Sr. and Edward and Gloria (nee Beale) Domenichetti; cherished uncle of Michele Domenichetti, Paul Marchese, Jr., Cristopher and Renee Marchese, Michael Domenichetti and Amanda Woehrle, and great-uncle of Eleonora (Ellie) Marchese. Michael was predeceased by his loved and loving father- and mother-in-law Feo and Anne (nee Miculan) Domenichetti.
Michael was a graduate of Glendale Secondary School (1973) and after was employed by Canadian Westinghouse. On November 5th, 1979 he was hired by Petro Canada where he spent the next nearly 30 years as an exemplary employee and sincerely enjoyed the close camaraderie shared with his “buddies”. He also served as a member of their Volunteer Fire Department. As a youth he played hockey at Parkdale Arena where he later coached his sons and, as they grew, their Dad introduced them to his love of the outdoors (water skiing and sailing at their cottage, golfing, snow skiing, skating).
From the time he was a boy growing up on Glencarry Avenue to the man who married and proudly raised two sons on Reid Avenue South, Michael’s unfaltering loyalty included everything Hamilton and Canadian – his neighbourhood, his Tiger Cats and, ALWAYS, his Maple Leafs!!
Visitation will take place at BAY GARDENS FUNERAL HOME, 947 Rymal Road East (between Upper Gage and Upper Ottawa), Hamilton (905-574-0405) on Thursday, April 16th, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., and Friday, April 17th, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. Funeral Service will be in the Chapel at Bay Gardens on Saturday, April 18th at 10:00 a.m. In lieu of flowers and in keeping with Michael’s generous spirit, donations to the following children’s charities would be appreciated: “Make a Wish” Foundation, “Ronald McDonald House”, and “Right to Play” International (468 Queen Street East, Lower Level, Toronto, Ontario.
