Rodney Adrian Watson Sr. 66, of St. Marys Wednesday, July 8, 2020, at Beaufort Memorial Hospital in Beaufort, South Carolina, after an accident.

Mr. Watson was born on Eglin Air Force Base in Walton County, Florida, to the late Orlandor Watson Sr. and Lorene Westbrook Watson and made St. Marys his home for many years. He served his country faithfully in the United States Air Force and worked as a supervisor for Trident Refit Facility for several years. He was a goofy, funny, gun-toting true American that had a kind heart and gentle soul. He loved his family and friends and would do anything for them.

In addition to his parents he is preceded in death by a brother, Orlandor Watson Jr. 

Mr. Watson is survived by three children, Rodney Watson Jr. of Vallejo, California, Bianca Watson of St. Marys, Shyla Watson of St. Marys; eight grandchildren, Adrinna Watson, Marquise Watson, Marquaze Watson, Autumn Watson, Landon Martin, Aerliyn Watson, Alexandra Fields, Carter Fields; five siblings, Beatrice Wyatt, Markitta Williams, Marcus Watson, Michael Watson, Yolanda Watson; two former spouses, Juantia Cook, Lorraine Watson; numerous nieces, nephews and other relatives.
