Condolences are extended to the family of Henry Watson. He was very friendly and loved his
family. We were co-workers as Federal Power
Commission in Washington, DC and we attended the same school (JCTS) in Smithfield, NC. He will be greatly missed. I will lift each of you up in my prayers.
God Bless!! Doris Elaine Hilliard Washington

I will truly miss Pop Watson, the Watson Family opened up their home to me and treated me like family after I graduated from A and T, I will always be grateful. Pop Watson and my Dad had so much in common their love for family and how they made everybody feel like family. I loss my Dad two weeks ago before Pop Watson so my heart is heavy right now but I know they are celebrating in Heaven.
Many Blessings...Vickie Jackson (Aggie)

It sadden me you had to go. I went to Aunt Ada grave and told her you were on your way. We had a wonderful Uncle, in which all of them were. You had courage & integrity most of all love and wisdom. We are so thankful we had so many years with you. I'm so very proud & grateful to say you were our Uncle Henry. God has you now. I find comfort knowing you are ok in the arm of Aunt Ada. May you have forever peace in the house of the Lord forever. We love you rest in peace. Lisa Watson Davis

Mr. Watson was the last surviving friend of my late uncle James Sanders. I greatly appreciated the stories he told of their youth and am deeply saddened by his passing. Special thanks to his son for maintaining the connection. Rest In Peace Mr. Watson.

I mourn with the rest of my family the passing of this uniquely special man who for the past 63 years I affectional called Watson. A man strong in character, principle and will. A man to whom I am forever grateful for the love and many life's lessons he taught me. Rest in peace, my father, my brother my friend. You will be missed. Be at peace family in knowing that after living such a wonderful life he has earned his eternal rest with Our LORD Our GOD.
