In 1979 he met Deborah K. Robinson and they became “Life Long Partners.” Curly became “Father” to Jason Maurice Robinson and a son, DeAdrian Cur’le Robinson Watson. In 1986 Curly became father to Tiffany Unique Robinson.
Curly truly was a remarkable man. He liked staying in his “Sanctuary” where he loved watching his Soap Operas and playing his Music!
Curly’s true joy was his “grandsons” and his other grandchildren. Curly had a very sweet spirit. He was known to the neighborhood kids who all loved and cherished him. Curly was not only a father to his children and grandchildren but took care of everybody and was a man of his word.
To some of you he was “Pops”, to some of you he was an Uncle, to some a friend...again he was everybody's Pops! Curly was generous beyond a fault! Curly was phenomenal to Debbie. He was the “Love of her life”. She describes him as “The Best Man on Earth”.
Curly Watson leaves to cherish many loving memories created with his family, Deborah Kay Robinson, his “Long Life Partner”; two sons, Jason Maurice Robinson and DeAdrian Cur’le Robinson Watson; two daughters, Denita Hudson (Anthony) and Tiffany Unique Robinson (Tyree Adams); his brothers: Earl (Barbara) Watson, David (Debra) Watson and Daniel Watson (Angelisa); his sisters: Addie Teiry, Virl (Cleveland) Edmunds, Lillian Yakovitz (Stanley), Pearl Wright, Bernice Williams, and Louise Green (Kevin); thirteen grandchildren; thirteen great-grandchildren; and a host of other relatives and friends.
