Mr. Larry E. Watts, age 69, of Marietta, GA., passed away on Friday, February 17, 2017. Mr. Watts was born on April 24, 1947 in Tabor City, North Carolina, a son of the late Woodrow Wilson Watts and Annie Ruth Willis Watts.
Mr. Watts spent most of his adult life in Cobb County. He was an employee of Goodyear for many years and later became a Grounds Keeper for the City of Marietta from where he would later retire. Prior to his working career, Larry honorably served our country in the United States Army. In his spare time he enjoyed watching any type of sporting event or western on television, being outdoors, and his favorite, eating desserts; especially anything made with chocolate or coconut. His contagious sense of humor and love for everyone was infectious. Larry was an outstanding husband, brother, father, and grandfather; he will certainly be missed by all who knew and loved him.
Along with his parents, Mr. Watts is preceded in death by one brother, Charles Watts.
He is survived by his loving and dedicated wife of thirty four years, Mrs. Deborah A. Watts; three children, Stephen D. Watts of Smyrna, GA., Ben Watts of Marietta, GA., and Susan Ohliger, husband Mark, of Powder Springs, GA; two brothers, Paul Watts and Bill Watts; one sister, Ellen Watts; four grandchildren, Bailey Watts, Grace Ohliger, Kasen Ohliger, and KyaJoy Ohliger; several extended family members and friends also survive.
A Celebration of Life Gathering will take place from one o'clock in the afternoon until four on Thursday, February 23, 2017 at the 1890 House of Winkenhofer Pine Ridge Funeral Home, 2950 North Cobb Parkway Kennesaw, GA 30152.
