After spending time in Jamestown, Bob and Ruth Ann returned to Princeton. They were members of Donaldson Missionary Baptist Church and were devout Christians. They were also members of the local chapter of Woodmen of the World.

Through all of Bob’s endeavors, he was an avid Horseman and always found time for horses. He was happiest when in the saddle. Bob owned, bred, trained, shoed and rode. He participated in numerous “Trail Rides”, including 25 times at the Cross-Country Trail Ride in Eminence, MO. At the age of 72, he was the oldest Horseman to complete the “240-mile Shore to Shore (Lake Huron to Lake Michigan) Trail Ride”, (one way and back again). He and his wife Ruth Ann frequently camped and rode at Wranglers Camp at Land Between the Lakes in Kentucky.

Bob’s family would like to thank all of the very special and caregivers at St. Paul’s Life Community, who took such good care of Bob his last three years. Their love and compassion was particularly important during these trying times of COVID.

In addition to his parents, Bob was preceded in death by his wife: Ruth Ann Smith Watson, his brothers: Howard “Buck” and Edgar “Eddie” Watson.

Dad, we hope you’re riding on the wind, a top your favorite horse. You were our loving cowboy and will be greatly missed.
