Mr. E. Floyd Watson, 58, of 201 Haven Way South, Washington, passed away peacefully on Monday, February 26, 2007 at his residence.

The family will receive friends from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. this evening at his residence.
Mr. Watson was born April 18, 1948 in Beaufort County. He was the son of Mary Etta Floyd Watson and the late Edward Early Watson. He was a veteran of the US Marine Corps. Having served in Viet Nam, Floyd was a highly decorated Viet Nam Veteran receiving a Viet Namese Cross of Gallantry w/star and Bronze Star with a combat V. Immediately after the war, Watson joined the peace movement and spent the rest of his life preaching the peace of Jesus Christ. He was a traveling evangelist holding ministries throughout the United States.
These words encapsulate Floyd’s life. There comes a certain moment in the experience of every person, when a touch of the Spirit breaks through into consciousness; when a ray of light penetrates, not because of the person, but in spite of them. From the moment that ray touches him, the end is inevitable, as he is going to find his way to the very center of his being, right to the throne of God.
Survivors include three children, Isaiah Watson of Belmont, NC, Bethany Lear and husband, Rick of Alpharetta, GA, and Jeremy Watson of Washington, NC; his mother, Mary Etta Floyd Watson of Washington, NC; one sister, Linda Browning and husband, Ed of Griffin, GA; one brother, Ed Watson and wife, Tonna of Washington, NC; and three grandchildren, twins, Isabella and Jadyn Lear and Cole Lear.
