Death of Lance Watt

Lance Clyde Watt died on Sunday 8 April. Until recently, Lance had  lived at his family’s home at the end of Glen Esk Road, Piha, then ill health led to his going to live at the Ranfurly Home in Epsom.

Lance was the son of Piha’s poet, Lorna Watt, and plumber, Lex Watt. The Watts bought the property in Glen Esk Road in the 1950s, next to what was then the Church of the Nazarene (now Piha Mill Camp) and for many years this was the family’s holiday property.

Lance worked in the building industry although at one time he ran the bar at old Piha Surf Club. He made home brew and entered competitions. He was a very long-term Associate Member of the Piha Returned Services Association.

Lance had twin daughters, Joanne and Leanne, and six grandchildren.
