Mr. Charles A. Watson Sr., affectionately known as Junior, passed away Thursday, March 28, 2019.
Junior was born in Meridian on January 5, 1932, to the late A.J. and Mary Ann Watson. He was a milkman all of his life. The family started out with their own dairy farm and bottled their own milk at Watson's Dairy. Later, Junior was an independent distributor of milk from Realicious and later Borden's. He maintained his customers throughout the years. Junior's hobbies were hunting and fishing and he was very good at both. He was a member of two hunting clubs, East Porterville and Stateline Hunting Clubs. His main thing in later years was sitting on his porch and talking with his kids. He was loved by all and never met a stranger.
He is survived by his children, Dianne Price (Charles), Charles Watson Jr., and Kathy Bidgood (Charles); his grandchildren, Ryan Price, Bradley Price, Blake Watson (Anitra), Nicole Watson Denton, Charles "Bo" Singleton Bidgood IV, and Brooke Bidgood; and his great-grandchildren, Sophie Denton and Gracie Denton. He is also survived by a daughter-in-love, Barbara Watson.
He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife of over 50 years, Julia Mae Watson; his siblings, James H. Watson, Louise Terry, Dorothy Jones, Winnie Mae Fairchild, and an infant brother.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be shared with the American Cancer Society.
Visitation will be Monday, April 1, 2019, from 12:30-2 p.m. at Robert Barham Family Funeral Home.
