Jacob Gene Anthony Watson, Sr., born on October 5th, 1946, passed away at his home, surrounded by his loved ones on July 25th, 2018. He is survived by his wife of 52 years, Roseanna Watson, and his four children, Jake Jr. (51), Tammy (49), Thomas (47), and Lisa (46).

Jake live most his life in Columbia, PA with his brothers Elwood and Charles, and his sisters Gloria and Rosie. He made many friends along the years. If you were to ever asked to "pet his beagle", you would know it was Jake you were talking to. On days that it was "hotter than a duck's ass", you could find him swimming with his nine grandchildren, and his two great-grandchildren, in his backyard. His love for animals showed, from skunks and snakes, to miniature poodles, he always had a furry friend to show off, or chase you with.

Jake's family and friends will be having a celebration of his life, where his ashes will be used in the planting of a dogwood tree. Here they will always be able to visit, and watch a beautiful tree grow, like the beauty that Jake brought to their world. Arrangements by the Clyde W. Kraft Funeral Home, Inc. Columbia/Landisville.
