BC Cowboy Hall-of-Famer Bruce Watt grew up in the Fraser Valley and moved to the Big Creek area of the Chilcotin in 1948. Rodeo was a big part of his life, and he competed in rodeo events until he was in his late seventies. A consummate storyteller and a man of many jokes, Bruce had a fantastic ability to see the humour in most situations. He always derived great pleasure from the people and animals around him, and his hearty laugh was second only to his thunderous sneeze. Bruce passed away in 2013.
