David Ross Watson, Senior, 87, Residing on Maltby Road in Woodinville, passed away April 25, 9:30 a.m. at Evergreen Hospice in Kirkland, Washington.
Dave was born August 15, 1930, in Issaquah, to parents, John Glenn Watson and Eunice Pritchard. He has an older brother, Elmer (Bud) Watson and younger sisters, Marie Watson Tibbets and Susan Taylor Williams, both deceased.
Dave graduated from Issaquah High School in May of 1948. He worked on a dairy farm for an uncle before getting a job with Bethlehem Steel in 1950 when his fiancé told him she would not marry him unless he was working. He took pride in the fact that he worked on the largest crane at the company for many years. Dave Watson and Peggy Lou Worl were married November 22, 1950 in Bothell. They made their home in Woodinville and had five boys.
Dave loved his family, his home, and friends. He was quiet and reserved, but with his very outgoing wife, he learned to make friends easily. He loved playing cards with his friends and enjoyed breakfast out before church. Dave retired from the steel company in August of 1995. The couple was then able to travel south for part of the winter for many years and enjoyed visiting Death Valley and Organ Pipes National Parks. He loved the Mariners and Seahawks and watched the games faithfully. He felt fortunate to be able to see some of the Mariners’ spring training practices in Arizona. He enjoyed camping at Kalaloch National Park with family, especially Thanksgiving week. If he could get there during clamming season, he loved to catch razor clams and enjoyed eating them fresh in camp.
Dave and Peggy were married 67 years. Peggy passed away February 14 of this year. He is survived by his brother, Elmer (Bud) and spouse-Barbara along with his sons David R. Watson, Jr. (Judy), Thomas Watson (Delia), Mark S. Watson (Susan), Ross A. Watson, John Watson (Mylisse). He is also survived by his grandchildren Tim Watson (Trish), Traci, Thom-John, Stephen, Stefanie, Garett, and Jared, and his great-grandchildren, Brenna, Lilly, and Lennox.
