He is preceded in death by his son, Colin Watson.

He is survived by Judie Watson, his wife; Gavin and Tomi Watson, his son and daughter-in-law, of Seattle, WA, his well-loved grandsons Ulysses (Uly) and Leo; his sister, Maggi Griffin (Jeff), of LaFollette, TN. Boat builder, guitar player and source of esoteric knowledge, Bob will be sorely missed by family and friends who admired him so much. He will be remembered privately at home with friends and family.
