    Your dad was the a wonderful friend at high school. He was kind and hard working. I later meet his three great daughters and son. Mrs. Watson please know that your family is a blessing to so many.

    Very sorry to hear of your dad's passing. I have fond memories of him. He was my bus driver, counselor and driver's ed teacher. He gave great advice all through my high school years and I passed on his advice to my son. I know you will miss him dearly.

    So many great memories of Mr. Watson. He was a teacher and a friend to all his students. He was someone we trusted and confided in. Every Saturday morning we took off with him in the Driver's Ed car and he would let us drive all day. I will always remember his smile and his laugh. Thank you Watson family for sharing him with us. We will always have fond memories of him. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time.
