He was an outdoorsman, who loved hunting and fishing, but most of all he enjoyed the time with his family. Jerry's happiest moments were in the presence of his family. He was a loving husband, brother, father, grandfather, friend, and so much more, and will be dearly missed by everyone that had the opportunity of knowing him.

He is reunited with his father, Wolf Watson; mother, Minnie Lee Adams & her husband WP; and his grandson, Bryce Lescault.

He leaves behind the love of his life of 51 years, Marie Stewart Watson of Vidalia, LA; two daughters, Shiela K. Young & her husband Paul of Pass Christian, MS and Bridget N. Pavlick & her husband Robert "Pav" of Summerville, SC; two brothers, Robert L. Watson and Donald W. Watson both of Clayton, LA; three grandchildren, Brit Fiori Maciel, Haden Williamson, and Cierra Lescault; soon to be great-grandson, Luciano "Lui" Fiori Maciel; nephew, Robert "Bubba" Watson; niece, Jennifer Watson; and his special buddy, Liam. Jerry leaves behind a host of nieces, nephews, close family, and friends.

Those honoring Jerry as honorary pallbearers will be Pedro Fiori Maciel, Paul Young, Pav Pavlick, Josh Walker, Stuart Boykin, and Kenny House.

The family ask that in lieu of flowers, please make a donation to your choice of charity or church in remembrance of Jerry.
