Honoring a friend of Mandahl Bay

Fred Watts loved to walk the beach of Mandahl Bay with his dogs at his side, enjoying the peace, solitude and beauty of this bay.  As his grand children came along, they too joined him as he shared one of his favorite places and made priceless memories.  For 35 years, Fred loved this bay and worked on saving it and preserving it.


On June 17, 2015, Fred Watts passed away calmly and peacefully, surrounded by family, love and music.  Fred is survived by his wife, Polly; son, Colin; daughter, Karen; four granddaughters, Austen, Sydney, and Spencer Watts, Abigail Farrington; numerous nieces and nephews; and his beloved dog Cassie.

A celebration of Fred’s life will be held on Saturday, Aug. 15, at Magens Bay Shed No. 2 from 2 to 5 p.m.

In honor of Fred, and as a lasting tribute, The Watts family requests friends make a donation to Save Mandahl Bay, a cause Fred strongly supported.  Please make checks payable to VICS (VI Conservation Society) noting Save Mandahl Bay in the memo line, 4126 Anna’s Retreat, St. Thomas, USVI 00802 – or by credit cards http://virginislandsconservationsociety.org

Thank you to The Watts Family… we will always and fondly remember Fred.
