Obituary

CELEBRATING THE LIFE OF ELLIS CORNELIUS WATSON
Earthly Visit Entered Eternity
September 1, 1950 April 23, 2019

OBITUARY
Ellis Watson was granted his angel wings on April 23rd 2019. He was born on September 1st, 1950 to the late Leon Watson and Ruby Lee Watson. He is preceded in death by his brother Carl Watson (Shirley Watson) and sister, Evelyn Edler.

His final days were spent surrounded by family and friends that Ellis had touched in some small way throughout his memorable life.

Ellis life would seem too short to many, but those who were touched by him understood that the quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives. His gentle smile and laid back demeanor brought so much joy to family and friends.

He was a member of “Church Of The Living God” under the leadership of Pastor Sarah Williams where he attended regularly until his sickness prohibited his attendance.

Ellis graduated from Crestwood High School (1969) and joined the Unites States Coast Guard shortly after graduation. He retired from Norfolk Base with over 30 years of service.

Ellis leaves to cherish his memories his son Jeremy Watson (Chesapeake); brother Eldret Watson (Chesapeake) and sisters Corine Moore and Cynthia Edler (Leonard Edler), of Chesapeake; and a host of family and friends.

I’m so sorry for your recent loss. My deepest condolences to your family. Death of a loved one is never easy to endure, but you don’t have to go through it alone. Continue looking to God and you will always find comfort in him (2 Cor 1:3,4). He will soon destroy the enemy of death (1 Cor 15:26), and He will soon return our loved ones to us through the resurrection (John 5:28,29). Please visit JW.org and search “When Someone You Love Dies”, it helped me through some difficult times and I hope you can find comfort in it also.
