On May 2, 2013, Avery Watson, 61, of Seven Springs, NC, went to be with his heavenly father after a long illness with complications due to heart disease and diabetes.
A memorial service and celebration of his life will be held on Saturday, May 11th at 2:00 p.m. at Seven Springs Baptist Church with Rev. Rick Rigny officiating. His wishes were to be cremated so there will be no grave service.
