On the morning of Wednesday, Sept. 18, 2014, God picked a rose for his garden. Charles Ray Watson was born July 6, 1964, to the late Brenda Marie Watson and Willie Williams. He was raised by Alma and James Bickham.

He graduated from Bogalusa High School. Charles attended Alcorn State and was currently attending Faith Bible College.

At the time of death he was retired but worked various jobs prior to retiring.

Charles was known by everyone for his loving personality and caring ways. Always helping others and never meeting a stranger, he was liked by all he encountered. He was faithful to his church and Faith Bible and very committed to the singing group The Mighty Supremes.

Charles leaves to cherish his precious memories a wife, Shelia Watson; one son, Chance Watson; a child who he raised as his own, Gentorica (Kalvin) Wright; two brothers Byron (Freda) Watson and Eric Martin; two sisters, Bernadean (Roand) Watson and Nancy Robertson; three grandchildren; and a host of uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
