Aaron Kent Watson, 60, from Buffalo Cove, NC, went home to be with Our Lord on Wednesday, October 6, 2021, after a brief illness with Congestive Heart Failure and Pneumonia.
He was born on February 13, 1961, in Caldwell County, to the late Claude Watson & Evaline Watson.
Kent is survived by his brothers, Kirk & Kenneth Watson, his children: Kalyn Watson, Kody Watson, Kacie Townsend husband Dj Townsend, Christopher Jennette & Joe Jennette; his grandchildren, Reagan Watson, Lucy Hollar, Serenity Hollar, Kevlin Jennette, Jake Jennette, Dixie Townsend, Erin Townsend, Shelby Townsend and Joseph Townsend, former wives, Sheila Coffey and Celi Hallowes, and current wife, Dana Watson.
Kent was known and loved by many, and his home “up in the hollar” was a social mecca for many folks over the decades. His love for music was huge, with an early background in Gospel and Bluegrass, but he always gravitated towards rock. In the early 90s, he helped form the Patterson-based rock group Lodezra, a legacy and network of close-knit friends that has continued to this day.
A Celebration of Life will be announced by his children at a later date.
