David C. Watts

Tuesday, May 14, 2024

David C. Watts, 65, of Cloverdale, passed away on Sunday, May 12, 2024.

He was born Dec. 23, 1958 in Greencastle to the late Max Watts Sr., and Betty (Trump) Watts.

He married Shawn (Williams) Watts Aug. 19, 1989, and she survives.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by his children, Savannah Watts and Parker Watts and significant other Jenna Lawrence; siblings Max Watts Jr. and wife Marty, Billy Watts, Diana Hazlett and husband Jim and Carol Ann Milsap and husband Greg.

David worked for Cloverdale Building Supplies in Cloverdale until his retirement.

David was an avid IU fan, especially during the Bob Knight era. He had a regular routine he followed on game night, which was to hang his IU banner from the ceiling, put on his favorite IU sweats and hoodie, get the beer cold and proceed to yell at and throw his foam brick at the TV.

After his kids were born and were old enough to play sports of their own, David always could be found participating as spectator and yelling from the sidelines, or as dugout dad with youth baseball and play runner with youth football. One year with the youth football program, David received the Most Valuable Practice Dad award.

Graveside services for David will be held Tuesday, May 21 at 1 p.m. in the Union Chapel Cemetery, Morton.
