Obituary

Ron Watson, 68, of The Villages, Florida, passed away on 3/10/2019. He died unexpectedly from a single golf cart accident. He married the love of his life, Michelle Hazel, in 1978. Ron is survived by his wife, Michelle, father, Verle, brother, Doug, two sons, Scott (Laura) and Matt (Kelly), as well as grandchildren Kayla, Kelsey and Jack. Everyone knew Ron as the jokester of the group. He would always bring light to conversation and would make timely jokes that fit each moment so perfectly. His famous saying, “a wink’s as good as a nod to a blind horse” or his infamous one hand clapping were always fixtures in every day conversation. You knew if you couldn’t find dad, he’d be on the golf course, in the golf cart for a cruise with his dog, Booger, or fishing. The memorial service will be held on Thursday, March 14th, at 2 p.m. at Baldwin Brothers Funeral Home in Wildwood, Florida 3990 E FL-44 Ste 105, Wildwood, FL 34785.

    I have fond memories of working with Ron at Boca Raton Fire Rescue. We could hear Ron’s laughter through out administration. Ron was friendly and knowledgeable. He spoke with fondness for his wonderful family and how fortunate he was to have them part of his life. God bless Ron and may he Rest In Peace. Xo CA

    Michelle, you and your family are in my heart and prayers. Our friendship spanned almost 35 yrs from Tamarac to Wellington, birthdays, holidays and fried walleye dinners. Even if we hadn’t seen each other for a while, we’d always pick up right where we left off. Ron had a knack for telling jokes and could make a colorful story out of the most ridiculous event. Being a brother firefighter, we shared that twisted sense of humor that only us and those closest to us could understand. Ron, you will be missed, but when I see you again on the “other side”.. Oh the stories we will tell. Cheers Ron. To a life well lived

    Oh Dear Ron, you left us too soon. We will miss your mischievous smile, your witty ways and your funny little sayings that made being with you so much fun. Truly a good father, loving husband, and a joy to call our family friend. Tell the guy upstairs to move over your golf cart is on its way.

    Michelle and Family,
    Words cannot express the sorrow we feel due to the passing of Ron. Many FD memories fill our minds today from Ron helping Craig pass the Medic exam to watching him work on his stained glass projects at Station 1, to eating lobsters at the FD holiday party. He was a great guy and will be deeply missed. May God guide you and protect you during this difficult time. Love you

    I am at a loss for words. We have been “family” friends since 1984. I love you all very much. He will be terribly missed at our wonderful happy hours! We were just reminiscing with Michelle of one such happy hour. Don’t spill the wine up in Heaven Ronald!
