Mr. Ben Watts

Ben Watts ObitMr. Benjamin Todd Watts, age 48 of Franklin, Georgia passed away at his home on Wednesday, May 11, 2016.

Mr. Watts was born in LaGrange, Georgia on December 28, 1968, the son of Peggy Lasseter Watts and Roy Watts. He was a member of Glenloch Baptist Church.

For all of his adult life he was a well-known and well-loved fixture in Heard County where he and his dad, Roy were the inseparable team of Roy Watts Plumbing and Trenching.

No matter what time of day or night, or what the weather conditions, when needed they never turned anyone down. Their care and professional services endeared Ben and his dad to almost every family in the county at some time or other.

Ben was a great inspiration to all who knew him. For most of his life he had suffered with a debilitating disease, but he never let it stop him for a moment. His work ethic was beyond reproach.

In his spare time loved to hunt and fish. He was a kind, soft-spoken man. The greatest joy in his life was his relationship with his mother and father, two brothers, and his beloved nieces. His devotion to his family was a great blessing to them all. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

He is survived by his mother and father, Peggy and Roy Watts of Franklin, GA.; two brothers, Tim Watts (Sherri) of Powder Spring, GA., and Keith Watts of Whitesburg, GA.; special aunt and uncle, Linda Lasseter of Franklin, GA., and Eugene Watts (Carol) also of Franklin, GA.; and two beloved nieces Brook and Dallis Watts of Franklin, GA.

Funeral services will be conducted on Saturday, May 14, 2016 at 2:00 PM from the Stutts Funeral Home Chapel with Reverend Lynn Janney officiating. The interment will follow in Heard County Memorial Gardens.

The family will receive guests at the funeral home Friday, May 13, 2016 from 6-8 p.m.
