Phillip J Watson (Knuckles)

"The righteous perish, and no one ponders it in his heart; devout men are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil. Those who walk uprightly enter into peace; they find rest as they lie in death." Isaiah 57: 1-2

Sunrise August 5, 1980 to Sunset March 4, 2011.

The Watson, Hammonds and Knuckles families announce with profound regrets the sudden and untimely death of our ever so loving "love child" and precious son, Phillip J Watson, commonly called by relatives and friends "PJ". PJ was called home to glory on Friday, March 4, 2011.

PJ, Phillip to all who came to know him, was easily recognized in the crowd by his smiles and reassuring sense of calmness that drew people toward him instantly. Everyone who came to know him took notice of how well behaved he was. Philip was very humorous in nature and would share or make you laugh at the drop of the hat at your worst moment or trying times in one's life. He was known to share his last, even if it was to a stranger. Surely, we who loved him dearly will ponder in our hearts and search our minds for answers for such unexplainable departure while we yet take comfort in knowing and believing in the promise of Jesus Christ, the Son of God of our Heavenly Father, that PJ, Phillip has entered into the peaceful rest as he lay in death of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

He leaves to cherish his impressionable memory, his ever so loving mother and best friend, Alice Miatta Watson, Lady Marie Hammonds (second mother and aunt), maternal grandmother Eunice Davis (Teta), maternal grandfather Professor Emmett Watson (deceased), aunt Jeanette Hood (Stormy), aunt Louise Watkins (Mommy), three siblings Dominique Watson, Umbori Watson, and Joceline (Penny) Deho; niece Ciatta Naiomi Deho, cousins but known as his siblings, Karl, Jr., Tyrone, Karla, Muriel, Racquel, Emmett, Eunice, other maternal relatives and well wishers.

Also his loss is shared by his father Rev. Robert E. Knuckles, II (Thelma), paternal grandmother Annie B. Knuckles of Careysburg, Liberia, his siblings, Valerie, DanClev and DeOntaie Knuckles, Shenecka Lowery and Sade Dotson along with his paternal aunts and uncles and a host of other relatives and sympathizers residing in the USA, Liberia and the world at large.
