Billie Sunday Watson
Billie Sunday Watson, of Wimberley, Texas, passed peacefully from this world at his home on Christmas Day, December 25, 2018, at the age of 95. Fifth of six children, Bill was born June 5, 1923 to Luther and Mira Watson in Dripping Springs, Texas, and graduated second in his class (of two) from Mount Gaynor school. Bill married Gennieve Cure of Wimberley on September 9, 1949. Together they raised 4 children, all of whom still live in this area. After serving in the Coast Guard during WWII, Bill found various callings, as car salesman, renaissance knifemaker, co-founder of Angel Sword, candlemaker, and as a leatherworker until age 91. He travelled around the renfair circuit and long served as the “Mayor” within the NY Renaissance community. He had a skill for deer hunting, principally as a way of providing, and was deeply involved with the extended family. He was a friend of many, including his childhood friend and fellow mischief maker, Tuffy Davis. Additionally, Bill was an avid reader and was known to tell one of a kind stories. Most importantly, Bill unconditionally loved and supported his wife, kids, and the close family he and Gennieve created. Bill is survived by his wife of 69 years, Gennieve, sons Daniel, David (Laura), and Dean (Kimberly), daughter Diana Spangenberg (Ron) (in-laws), 7 grandchildren, 7 great grandchildren, 1 great-great grandchild, loving nieces and nephews, and a few outlaws. After his final week surrounded and loved on by family, Bill Watson was laid to rest on December 28, 2018 at Jacob’s Well Cemetery.
