David J. Watson

September 30, 1938 - February 25, 2018

David J. Watson, born September 3O, 1938 passed away on February 25, 2018.

Dave proudly served in the U S Marine Corps. After leaving the service, he worked for Rough Notes Printing. He also worked as a taxi driver, for Gates Title and Marble. He then worked for Allison Division of GM as a Storage Unit Manager, where he eventually retired. After retirement he worked in customer service at Big Lots, Home Goods, and Shoe Sensation as an Assistant Manager.

He was a member of the Moose Lodge for 50 years, as well as the Elks Lodge, VFW Auxiliary, Eagles , and the Sons of American Legion. He volunteered at the Rescue Treasures and Beyond Homeless Shelter [thrift shop]

He enjoyed many residences; Connersville IN, Beloit WI, Indianapolis IN, Maywood IN, Speedway IN, Greenwood IN, Beech Grove IN, Plainfield IN, Cloverdale IN, Tucson AZ, and finally settled in Greencastle IN.

I want to thank the literally thousands of good hearted, well meaning people and the half dozen or so really bad apples that has been my privilege to know.

My legacy is three almost perfect adult children, one almost perfect son-in- law. Three absolutely perfect grandchildren. Two more then perfect great grandchildren and three awesome sisters. Who could ask for a better legacy…

A Celebration of life will be Saturday March 3, 2018 from 12  to 4 pm at 590 West Main Street Jamestown IN.46147
