Mark A Watkins

September 15, 1964 — August 29, 2022

Mark A. Watkins passed away on August 29, 2022, at Memorial Health in Savannah after a short illness. Mark was born in St. Albans, West Virginia but moved with his family to Statesboro when he was 8 years old.

He received his formal education in Bulloch County at Southeast Bulloch High School. From his informal education he learned how to become one of the best roofers/carpenters around. A self-taught shade tree mechanic, Mark also took great pleasure in working on his family’s and friend’s vehicles.

Mark enjoyed being outdoors. Fishing was a favorite pastime and Nascar racing was his sport. But his greatest love was just spending time with his family.

Mark is preceded in death by his wife, Kay Peth Watkins and his parents, Clyde E. Watkins and Janet F. Watkins.

He is survived by his two brothers, Ricky E. Watkins (Joy) and Ronald L. Watkins (Lisa); his sister, Dreama S. Powell (Charles); his three stepdaughters, Crystal Heck (Ronnie), Louise Edwards (James) and Theresa Mobley (Greg); stepson, Thomas Peth (Celeste); several nieces, nephews, cousins; and his dog, Smokey.

A Celebration of Life Service will be held on Saturday, September 24th at 1:00 PM at Believer’s Church with Pastor Mike Oglesby officiating.
