He is survived by his devoted wife, Betty Watson; children Bobby Watson (Judy), Cathy Hill, Pam Watson (Charlie), and Gene Watson; siblings Oscar (Jink) Watson, Virginia Westberry (Clyde) and Beatrice (Glenn) Burch; 12 grandchildren, 26 great grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren, multiple nephews and nieces.
