Obituary of Norman Frank Watson

Norman Frank Watson was born on October 17, 1942, in Porterville California
to Frank and Bessie Maxine Crouse Watson. Norm passed peacefully to heaven
on April 26, 2022, at home in Cornville, Arizona. He suffered from
Alzheimer's, cutting an otherwise healthy man's life short.
He is survived and cherished by his wife, Jill Whitener,
older sister Linda Strand and younger sister Sandy Moulton,
his children: Kim Flynt, Erik Watson, stepchildren
Ben Watson, Chris and Tiffany Campbell, grandchildren: Lily Watson, Breanna 
Gilroy, nephews Colin and Garrett Moulton, grandnieces Jen and Kelsey 
Moulton and step grandchildren, Addison and Savannah Panuccio. 

He is preceded in death by his parents, two wives, Sue Watson and Linda Watson.
He lived a quiet life of service: fireman, Coast Guard, policeman but loved and served
longest as an investigative deputy sheriff for San Diego County.  He saw
himself as a peace officer. His B.A. in archaeology aided him throughout
his life to look into the heart, listen and not judge, remember the good
and let the rest go.

 He traveled with 2nd wife Linda, lived throughout the
Western U.S. as an outdoorsman, created and sold leather clothing, raised
service dogs for the blind, took part in conservation projects, and was a
special needs aide and counselor for troubled teens. He loved children,
pets, the open spaces, a true chef, excellent dancer and had an infectious
sense of humor. He always knew how to make you smile.

Celebration of Life for Norm Watson will be Saturday, October 1st, 11:00 a.m. , 
at Oak Creek Valley Estates park, a light lunch served afterwards.
