Tribute to Lyall Watts

November 17, 2014 at 1:01 PM

All of us at Asbestoswise were deeply saddened by the news on Saturday November 15, of the death of Lyall Watts. We will miss Lyall as an active member, Asbestoswise secretary, constant contributor to our support group and most of all as a compassionate friend. 

His advocacy as a person living with ARD was unique in both its breadth and depth. He was passionately interested in research into the treatment and cure for mesothelioma. He also was active in promoting education and awareness aimed at reducing future exposure to asbestos dust.

We send our sincere condolences to his partner, family and many friends and hope to celebrate his life and commitment by continuing to work towards positive change.

David Clement

Asbestoswise President on behalf of us all
