Obituary


:
Robert “Rob” Louis Watson, age 48, made his transition at home on Wednesday, November 9, 2022. Rob was born March 7, 1974, in Gary, Indiana to Joycelyn and Robert Johnson.    
Rob was raised in Gary, Indiana. In his childhood he spent time skateboarding, doing tricks on his BMX bike, and riding around the neighborhood with his friends.
He attended Lew Wallace High School where he met his future wife and was also a part of the wrestling team. After he graduated in 1992, he then followed his passion for construction and became a union laborer. He then moved on to follow his dream by starting his own company, Nationwide Construction and Traffic Safety.
He enjoyed spending time outdoors, traveling with his family, grilling for family cookouts, golfing, all things construction, doing what he could to help others in need, and making people laugh any chance he could.
Rob is survived by his wife of over 20 years, Andrea Watson; son, Breyon Watson; daughters Jada and Ciara Watson; father, Robert Johnson; sister Marie (Robert Anthony) Christian; brothers Calvin and James Watson; and several nieces, nephews, cousins, in-laws, and many friends.
