Dear editor: With deep sadness I have learned of the death of Dr. Harold (Harry) Watts on Nov. 15 in Toronto.
Dr. Harry Watts was an exceptional administrator of the Western Memorial Regional Hospital in Corner Brook.
He cared not only about the doctors but every person who worked under his wings as nursing staff, technicians, janitorial workers, kitchen staff. He knew everyone by name
And, in case of any problems anyone had, he was always there to help.
He treated everyone equally and always had time to listen.
During my working years, the hospital had a fair number of doctors from different countries — mostly specialists.
He appreciated our hard work and made us feel like home.
He loved Newfoundland and during social occasions he talked about the kindness of people and how important it was for him to help others.
Harry, you are gone but as I can talk on behalf of all the foreign doctors who worked in Corner Brook, you touched our lives with your expertise, kindness and respect.
You will live on in our wonderful memories of times working at the Western Memorial Regional Hospital.
My friend, rest in peace.
Dr. Igor Krizan, Mahone Bay, N.S.
