Edward, 71, of Vidalia, passed away on Saturday, September 4th at Memorial Health Meadows Hospital.
He was born in Savannah on July 24, 1950 to Tyres and Margaret Watson. He was a dedicated and committed insulator for The International Association of Heat and Frost Insulators and Allied Workers Local 96 in Savannah. He became a member of Local 96 on August 11, 1974.
He was a member of Calvary on Aimwell Church in Vidalia. He deeply loved the Lord and was a faithful servant of the small things: like blowing leaves in the morning, making coffee for Sunday school class, bringing donuts and just being there to help others. He loved southern gospel music and he enjoyed purchasing old cars (they usually did not run).
Edward loved to make up words. So much so, that often no one knew what he was talking about. He loved to make people laugh. Some of his special words were: settin and wettin (sitting and waiting for people who aren’t on time), hondaroid (Honda car), hot quat (what?), I do…don’t know (I don’t want to give you an answer).
He was preceded in death by his parents (Tyres and Margaret) and brother (David). He is survived by his wife, Sheri, of 21 years; and two daughters, Amy Peth and Julie Brazell; two sisters (Theresa Fetty and Teri Mead); 3 brothers (Glynn, Larry and Barry) and numerous grandchildren, nieces, nephews and friends.
The family will have a burial service on Friday, September 10th, 2021 at 3:00pm at Greenwich Cemetery in Bonaventure, 330 Greenwich Rd, Savannah, Georgia.
No more pain for you Ed. Our hearts are broken but we will rejoice when we join you once again! We will always love you.Print This Obituary & Condolences
