Departed in Palm Bay, Florida on May 1, 2020
Friday May 1st 2020 Charles Stuart Watts, 88, went to rest with our Lord.
Charles was born on March 19, 1932 in the Greenpoint section of Brooklyn NY. One of 4 children to Charles Sr. and Dorothy Watts. He graduated from Automotive High school. He was a veteran of the Korean War and received his honorable discharge in Feb. of 1954. He married Marina Ortiz (deceased) and together they raised 7 children. He is survived by 6 children and 20 Grandchildren.
One of his pleasures was his membership in the Sunrise Yacht club. He will be missed by all his numerous friends and family. He will always be remembered for his laugh and ability to make people laugh.
Rest In Peace Dad…

I just want some of you newer guys to know that Charlie Watts was one of those members that kept the club going. I believe Charlie was one of the guys that convinced the other members at the time to get the first crane for boat hauling.
The first time he was Commodore was I believe in 1988. In 2000 I was the Commodore and Charlie was the Vice Commodore. It was a bit difficult back then to get members to volunteer to be flag officers to take their turn running the club. I said to Charlie, “Are you sure you want to do it again”, and he yep, “if that’s what I have to do to keep the place going”. So in 2001 Charlie was the Commodore a second time.
Yesterday I looked at the club camera to see the flag raising ( strange days we’re living in ) and I saw it was pouring rain. It poured on Charlie’s Commodore Breakfast and we could only run out there one at a time to raise the flags. To Charlie it was no big disappointment, the guys just raised their flags and then we went to the bar and toasted all veterans with the clubs best scotch, Johnny Beggs as Howie used to call it.
I’m glad we were friends. Bob Meagher
