April 19, 1952 – September 13, 2022
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the death of Jeff Waugh, who died peacefully at the
Banff Mineral Springs Hospital after a brief illness.
Jeff was a resident of Banff for over 40 years. He first came to the mountains to work with
Parks Canada, and then started his own travel business specializing in tours to South America
including the Galapagos Islands, where he had been a naturalist guide.
Jeff is survived by his wife Candis, son Evan (Alana) of Vancouver, and daughter Kiva currently
studying in Australia. He is also survived by his sister Glenda (Greg Watty) of Albany, California,
and nieces, Lindsay Watty (Casey Scollin), and Elizabeth Watty, and by cousins in British
A heartfelt thank you to the home care nurses that were a tremendous support during this
time, as well as the staff at the Banff Mineral Springs hospital who showed kindness and
compassion. Thanks also to this loving community who have expressed an abundance of
support and generosity to our family through this extremely difficult time.
In remembrance of Jeff, we ask that you enjoy a hike or a ski in the mountains and have a “wee
dram” to toast him.
A private gathering will take place at a later date to honour Jeff’s life well lived.
