Elmer “Junior” Watson
A resident of this North Carolina area all of his life, he was a veteran of the Army, having proudly served for 6 years. He worked for the Guilford County School System as a Bus Driver, having driven for Ragsdale, Central, and Oak Hill. He considered all the students he had in his care as “his kids”. Junior was active in the Highland Games and had served as Co-Regent for the Clan Buchanan as long as his health permitted. He was a loving brother, uncle and great uncle, and will be dearly missed. In addition to his parents, preceding him in death was a brother.
He is survived by a sister, two nieces, a nephew; an aunt; and a number of great nieces and nephews.
A service to celebrate Junior’s life was held 3 May in the Chapel of Cumby Family Funeral Service, with Reverend James Capps officiating. A committal service followed in Floral Garden Memorial Park Cemetery, with Military honors accorded by the Randolph County Honor Guard.
