Obituary

Live Stream will be available at the time of the service. 

St. Clair Watson, Sr. was born in Farmville, VA on November 1, 1954 to the late Oleaner Watson and Leonard Brooks.  St. Clair Watson, Sr. affectionately known as “ST” joined the Lord & Savior on Thursday, April 8, 2021 at RWJ University Hospital in Somerville, NJ.

ST went to John F. Kennedy High School in Paterson, NJ.  He then attended Seton Hall University in South Orange, NJ from 1973 – 1976 majoring in Business Administration. He retired from Haarmann & Reimer Corporation as a chemical technician. 

ST loved crossword puzzles, watching old tv shows like Star Trek and sports especially baseball, football and bowling.  He was a baseball player for the Paterson Black Sox for 16 years, a Youth Baseball Coach for the Somerville Baseball Incorporation (SBI) for many years and an avid Dallas Cowboys fan. A former representative of the Somerset County Leadership Forum.

On September 3, 1988 he married his childhood sweetheart Geraldine Williams.  Together they had one daughter (his twin) and two sons.  He always made sure that you knew he was from Paterson, NJ but he was an integral part of the Somerville community and unofficially the “Town Mayor”.  A man of many talents who would talk to anybody known and unknown, who loved children and animals.  Anything that he did not love you knew that too.

St. Clair Watson, Sr. was predeceased by his parents, Oleaner Watson and Leonard Brooks; and brother, Tyrone Watson.

He is survived by his loving wife of 32 years, 7 months and 5 days, Geraldine; his three children, Tatanisha (Michael) Towns, St. Clair “Saint” Watson, Jr., Williams Watson; siblings, Nancy Allen, Lucy Watson, James (Dematia) Watson, Sr.; granddaughter, Ava Ayanna Jones-Watson;  honorary children, LaKisha Williams, Toby (Brian) Mann-Johnson, Mason Robinson, Jamal (Gaby) Kassim, Avery Jones, Marques Jackson, Billy (Kathy) Chalmers, Jordan Jackson; and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
