‘He just kept the place alive’: Port Hood fire chief mourns colleague’s death

Fire Chief D.F. Beaton said Hugh Watts, 39, was a close friend with a great sense of humour. “Hugh was a very good firefighter. We just loved to see him come through the door because we were always in for a good evening. He’d tell jokes, stories, he just kept the place alive when he was here,” Beaton said. Watts and Glen MacDonald, 58, died Saturday when the fishing boat they were on capsized off the coast of Colindale, N.S., early Saturday morning. Watts’ stepson was also on board the vessel, but the 18-year-old managed to safely make it back to shore. >click to read< 15:28
