Robert H. Watts, 95, of Lake Havasu City, passed away on March 28,
2021. He was born Aug. 1, 1925 in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

In 1962, he married his wife Lucille Asher. They moved to Lake Havasu
in 1979. Lucille passed away March 2, 1995 and he eventually remarried
March 13, 1999 to Mary (Williams) Watts who passed away in 2004.

Bob was a retired 30-year Naval Veteran of the USS Missouri. He
participated in many USS Missouri reunions, at one point, finding he
was the eldest living sailor from his ship. He was quite proud of his
service. He was a part of the Elks lodge BPOE for more than 47 years.

Bob was active for his entire 95 years. He had his daily routine of
getting out each morning for a bite to eat. Up until a few years ago,
he routinely walked Rotary Park. As the years passed, he traded those
walks for strolls around Walmart and his daily visits to the Elks
lodge. If you ever wanted to hear a story, Bob was your man. He loved
to travel, particularly cruises and he nearly considered Hawaii his
second home.

He is preceded in death by his wife Lucille Asher and his second wife
Mary Williams, his parents Barry Watts and Grace (Yates) Watts,
brother Bill Watts, son Dewey Asher and his grandson Carey Asher. He
is survived by daughter Dorothy (Asher) Baughman and three
grandchildren, Teri Simms, Derek Simms, Christy Asher, as well as his
four great-grandkids and eight great-great grandkids.

A service will be held April 23, 2021 at noon at Lietz-Fraze Funeral
Home. Services were entrusted to the care of Lietz-Fraze Funeral Home.
