On Tuesday, August 31, 2021, George D. Watson peacefully departed this earthly life.
A child is born into a family and the child becomes the family. George walked into the lives of Steven and Sheila Watson when he was 2 and a half, and they became a family in Queens, New York. He loved walking around with his teddy bear, favorite books and attending church with his parents where he was always happy to wear bow ties. Around 1990 the family moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma to attend Rhema Bible College. George was determined to be able to read before finishing pre-kindergarten, which he did. He loved reading and by the time he was 7 years old he was reading at a junior high level. He would often lay in bed well into the night reading under the covers. God continued to bless the family when Dawn was welcomed into their embrace and George became her big brother. They both spent hours loving on their dog Penny, playing outside, and making friends. George loved going to the library from a very early age up until his passing. In the 8th grade George was in the play Guys and Dolls and he had the leading role of Nathan Detroit. When George Bush was running for president, George was engrossed in the debates and would give commentary on what Bush should and should not have said during the debates. He showed an interest in music at the early age of 4. He strummed his grandma Bessie’s hairbrush & sang at the top of his little lungs. And his family began to help him follow and develop his passion. At age 6 in the Greenwood section of Tulsa, Oklahoma (known as the Black Wall Street), he started composing & playing music with his music teacher Lonnie Ligget. When the family settled in the Maryland/DC area, they were able to align George with even more opportunities to pursue music. He studied under Gary Dinn, earning numerous music awards. State and National winner in the National Piano Playing Auditions, achieved perfect scores in the 6 parts of the Maryland State Keyboard Musicianship Examination (1- Scales, Chords & Cadences, 2- Arpeggios, 3- Sight-Reading, 4- Harmonization, 5- Transposition, and 6- Improvisation), and participant in the Annual Broad Creek Music Festival in the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center, University of Maryland among many other music awards. George continued playing his keyboard and guitar until his death. At age 13, he started working with his dad learning audio visual. He had a talent of being able to calm performers’ jitters. Performers said he had amazing customer service and had an ear for audio mixing. He attended Mercy College School of Media Arts in New York for a year and a half. He did audio engineering at multiple churches in Maryland and Washington, DC. One life touch another; and sometimes in a way that brings forth unimaginable blessings. George fell in love with his best friend, Sherayl Moye. They started a family in 2009; having 5 children. God knew, they would be George’s most cherished blessing. George loved God beginning at an early age and throughout his life. He often sent scripture to family and friends. Even in his last days; while he struggled to mentally stay the course, George’s friends and family could still clearly feel his heart and soul remained firmly planted with his love of the Lord and his children. He is survived by his parents, Steven, Sheila, and Hannah Watson. His children, Mya, Gregory, Kennedy, Jordan and Aubry (Angel). His sister Dawn Watson, his niece Shaniya, and his grandmother Ruth Watson. Aunts, Uncles, and a host of cousins as well as numerous friends.
