So sad to hear of Mr. Watton’s passing. He was an incredible teacher of mine at Centennial Central High and then Riverwood Academy. I will always remember his sense of humour, and his great teaching ability that has had a lasting effect on countless students. Best science teacher ever! Rest In Peace Mr. Watton, and my condolences to the family.

We are sad to hear of Ed's passing. Ed was a colleague and friend for many years. He was a competent and dedicated teacher, but more importantly, a wonderful human being, treating everyone with respect, whether they deserved it or not. Our sincere condolences to his family and friends.

I was deeply saddened to learn of the passing of my old colleague, car pool buddy and very dear friend. Ed was an outstanding teacher and an even better person. Those who knew him loved his warm, gentle nature and respected his unshakeable integrity. Judy and I pass on our deep condolences to Cecilia, David and Maria.
