Colt Bruce Watters of Fargo, ND passed away Friday, February 17, 2023 unexpectedly in the care of Mayo Clinic Hospital, Saint Marys Campus, Rochester, MN.

Born on September 30, 2022, Colt changed and brightened the lives of everyone who loved him and got the chance to meet him. Saturday mornings were Colt’s favorite, laying in bed with mom and dad while watching his favorite cartoon Deepa and Anoop. Colt was full of energy, giggles, and life. He was just about to roll over and had practiced standing so strong with daddy every day. Colt also enjoyed tummy time practice with mom while she read him books. Four months of life and a lifetime of memories, cherished by all. His smile lit up the room and will stay forever in our hearts and memories.

Colt loved to wiggle, kick, talk, and stare at the lights on any ceiling. Colt especially enjoyed his days spent with Grandma Franny and Grandma Jodi while mom and dad were hard at work.

Colt is survived by his parents, Valli and Jacob Watters; grandparents, Bruce and Fran Fjelde; grandparents, Bryan Watters, Jodi Watters; aunts and uncles, Erik Fjelde, Heather Watters; and great grandma, Merry Watters.

Colt was preceded in death by great grandparents, Hutch and Lois Hutchinson; great grandparents, Bruce and Kathleen Fjelde, Janice McIntosh, Douglas McIntosh, Richard Watters; and great uncle, Kenny McIntosh.

Mommy and daddy love you son,
One two, one two….
