SABATTUS – Charles D. Watson, 60, passed away at his home on Saturday, February 11, 2017. He was born in Argentia, New Foundland, Canada, on September 14, 1956, the son of the late Walter and Anne (Roy) Watson. With sad hearts we have lost our Charlie, Husband, Dad, Grandfather, Brother, Uncle, Cousin and friend. Charlie was an amazing man, special to so many, kind, loving, funny, oh so funny; what a sense of humor. His family, friends, fur babies loved him dearly – as he loved them. Charlie’s family was his world. He was very proud of his 2 boys and the men they have become. Charlie will always be remembered singing, “what really makes the rocking world go round!”. His motorcycle – you always knew Charlie was coming, you could hear his tunes. He enjoyed flea markets, and his garage and house are full of his treasures. He always had music going in multiple rooms at all times! Monday night with the boys, these are things that Charlie treasured most. He will be dearly missed by many. Rest in peace my love – until we meet again. Charles is survived by his loving wife of 31 years, Linda (Moore) Watson; his two sons, Eric and his wife Krystine Watson of Lisbon Falls, and Matthew and his fiancé Suzette of Sabattus; his three brothers, Phillip, Marty and Walter; his three sisters, Anne Marie, Beth and Theresa; his two grandchildren, Harvey and CJ; his future granddaughter who is due in June, and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents; his nephew Nick, and his best friend Hank.

One of the things that I remember about Charlie was his eyes--he had the kindest eyes. I did not know him well but he and my uncles, Bill and Tim Rines and my Aunt Fern and Uncle Jim Davis were good friends. The Rines, Gayton and Watson families have known each other for years and his kids and mine are also friends. The last time I talked to Charlie was in December at my Uncle Bill's funeral. He talked about Harvey and how he would pick him up at daycare and get to spend time with him and how much he enjoyed that and he talked about CJ and what a nice kid he was and how he enjoyed time with him and about his new grandbaby coming in June. He talked about Linda retiring and how good that was. He talked about missing my Uncle Bill and about how he thought my Aunt Fern was one of the nicest ladies he ever knew and how bad he felt that she is sick. He and my husband Rob talked about all the long hours they worked and in all the paper mills they worked in. We had a really nice conversation with him. I could tell that he loved his family very much and that he was a very caring person and he was surely loved by so many people judging by the amount that attended his funeral today. To Linda, Eric, Krystine, Matt,Suzette, his brothers and sisters, his grandchildren, nieces, nephews and all who loved him, I am truly sorry for your loss. May he rest easy until you meet again.

Now those twinkly eyes are shining down from the heavens. Rock On Charlie! xoxoxo
