    Mr. Watson was a wonderful neighbor and friend, our family will miss seeing him (almost daily) out in the yard. He would always make time to talk to our boys as they would yell “Hey Mr. Watson!” if they saw or heard him in the yard. The world has lost a wonderful man.

    To Kenneth’s wife Patsy, family and friends, God has chosen the greatest angel of all. I had the pleasure of Kenneth’s guidance at our Carter Blood Care blood drive’s for 17 years. He was the Best Blood Drive Coordinator ever! He also took good care of us( Carter Blood Care Staff) and his mission was to help save people’s lives!

  13. Kenneth was such a wonderful, thoughtful, kind person who cared about others. As an example, at several high school reunions, Kenneth put together a group to call one of our out-of-state classmates he and I had attended school together since first grade, so that they would be part of the reunion. Patsy, I know you have lost someone so special. My prayers are with you and your family.

  14. Rest In Peace,
    Thank you for your service to our Beloved Texas!
    May God’s Peace be with your loved ones and friends.

    We are so sorry for your loss. Please know that Kenneth was not only special to you but made a lasting memory on many others. I can’t think of Kenneth without thinking of his black Mach1 and how proud he was of that car. I made many trips up and down Valley Mills drive with him cruising in that car. Many memories from first grade through rooming with him in Arlington at UTA.
    Patsy, you and Kenneth have been such good friends.
    Like you, I will miss him greatly.

    Dear Patsy:
    I was heartbroken to hear about the loss of Kenneth. Since elementary school, he was always quiet, polite, and happy to be around. I can only imagine your sorrow. My deepest prayers for you and your family. Being around both of you was always a delight.

  17. Glena Hill Bryant

  18. Mike and Beth Hassell

    Dear Family of Ken,
    We are lifting you all up in prayer! Ken always exhibited a kind, gentle spirit, even when asked to drive a cramped van load of senior citizens to Grandbury for the day. May you all feel God’s grace and peace at this time!
    In Christ’s love, Mike and Beth Hassell

  19. What a beautiful, beautiful service for our recently departed husband, brother, and friend. I have nothing but fond and cherished memories of my friend, Ken. I will miss him greatly as I know you will. I pray that God will give you peace and comfort during this time of great loss. I have no doubt that someday we will all be reunited and that will be a joy filled day. God bless.
