John F "Jack" WattsJack Watts went to be with his wife Bea of 58 years on October 29, 2012 after a brief illness, he really missed her after she passed away earlier this year.
He was born to Roy R and Imogen Watts on October 8, 1926 in Wabash, IN, graduated from Purdue University, then moved to Washington where he spent the rest of his life.
He retired as chief engineer with The Boeing Company after 40 yrs of devoted service. He never did forget his love for the planes and didn't miss many days sitting at Paine Field with his mocha and watching them take off and land to the very end.
He loved to travel and looked forward to the annual trips back home with Bea to Arkansas and Indiana and the cruises they were able to take together. He and Bea loved going to the UW Husky football games and they really enjoyed the many years that they had season tickets. He was a very special person and had a zest for life to the very end. We will all miss him deeply and always cherish all the wonderful memories we have of him.
He is survived by his daughter, Sue (Ed) Collins and son, Ron (Ann) Reisner; grandchildren, Kenneth and Amanda, who meant the world to him.
A graveside service will take place on December 1, 2012 at Sunset Hills Memorial Park in Bellevue, WA with a Celebration of Life to be held in early 2013, details to follow.
