He also enjoyed playing cards and working jigsaw puzzles with his friends at Riverview Terrace, St. Albans. He could be counted on to run errands and tote and fetch to doctor appointments, grocery runs or just having a hot dog at the City Roadside Park with his family and many friends. Bill was an everyday patron of lunch with his friends at the Hansford Center. He loved Christmas and hanging lights, lots of lights and his family could always look forward to his gift of one dollar coins that he prepared by hand, placing them into walnut shells to hang as ornaments. This became a holiday tradition. He was very creative with unusual bird houses, and if you were lucky, he would give you one. Bill loved to play pranks on his family and friends, and one never knew when he would strike. Bill Watson and his sense of humor and wonderful laugh will be greatly missed. Funeral service was Monday, Nov. 26, 2012, at Bartlett-Chapman Funeral Home, St. Albans. Burial followed in Cunningham Memorial Park, St. Albans. Special thanks to Dr. Anthony Graham and staff, and Gentevia Services, Aaron, Mike, Leslie and Heidi and caregiver Helen Smith. You took wonderful care of dad.
