Everette Watts Obituary

Everette "Tiny" Watts, affectionately known as Pops by family, formerly of Whiteville, NC, passed away at his son's home in Newport, TN at the age of 68. He was preceded in death by parents Everette B Watts and Marjorie Todd, brother Mitchell Watts, and nephew Robert "Bobby" Watts. He is survived by children Patricia Watts and David Watts, daughter-in-law Jodi Watts, granddaughters Mikayla Sowa and Maya Johnson, great-grandson Benjamin Sowa, brother Mark Watts with Withie Reynolds,  sister-in-law Barbara Watts, and niece Laura Watts.


Pops was also a proud veteran, having served in the US Navy as a radio operator aboard the USS Pensacola. He continued his service post-military by joining and retiring from the Horry County Sheriff's Department as a corrections officer. 


Pops was a loving father who took pride in his children's accomplishments regardless of how big or small. He always had an intriguing story to tell and was quick with witty humor, oft leading to his notorious, fully-bellied bellowing laugh. Those who met him even only once were almost always left with a lasting impression. 


Pops was also an avid motorcyclist, with his greatest love torn between Triumph and Harley-Davidson motorcycles. He passed this love of riding to his son, David, with whom he shared many memorable riding experiences. Pops's love of riding and sense of service also led him to join the non-profit Copperheads Law Enforcement Motorcycle Club, with which he participated in many charity events/ rides before he lost his ability to continue riding.


Pops will be greatly missed by those who loved him the most.
