The only son of Norma Jean Prickett Watts and Don Lamar Watts, ‘Lil Don grew up on the Wrens/Matthews area and attended Jefferson County High School. He met the love of his life at age 12 at a Relay for Life event in Wrens, and at the age of 15, they started dating, and married just before his 18th birthday in 2012. ‘Lil Don started out working at Hadden’s IGA, then ceramic tile work and plumbing work. But his favorite job/hobby was working on cars and small appliances—he could fix anything! He loved fishing, especially with his family, and hunting. His most memorable experiences included the birth of his son and the day he asked God to move in and being baptized with his family—his wife, mother and father—on September 30, 2012 at Berean Baptist Church, where he faithfully served his Savior. His acceptance of Jesus, God’s free gift of life everlasting, changed his life. Always considered a congenial, good, generous person and one to help others, but after his life-changing experience, his love for people grew in such a way that is indescribable. Life was not suddenly easy but, through their trials, they put their faith in God and depended upon Him to sustain them and to give them the strength to endure. After being declared brain-dead from an accidental fall, the family knew that he would want to help others by having his organs harvested. As God would have it, his kidneys were matched to a man in his own church. In all things, ‘Lil Don wanted God to be glorified. How wonderful it must have been for him to hear “Well done, thou good and faithful servant; enter into the joy of Thy Lord.” He is now in his eternal home glorifying God and awaiting the arrival of his family.
‘Lil Don was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Eddie Lee Prickett; his paternal grandparents, Agnes Hayes Watts and Billy Watts Sr.; and uncle, Dean Prickett. Other survivors include his son, Don Lee Watts; sister, Tiffany Watts; maternal grandmother, Agnes “Tootsie” Prickett; in-laws, Barbara and Bryan Tapley; nephews, nieces, numerous cousins, church family and friends.
