Brian Watkins

December 22, 1971 — August 5, 2023

Brian Watkins passed away suddenly at the age of 51 years old on the night of Friday, August 4, 2023.  Brian was born on December 22, 1971 in Marietta, Georgia to John and Helen Watkins.

He was a man of integrity, a compassionate and authentic individual, who had a great love for his family and friends.  He was a lover of animals, Jimi Hendrix, and stand up comedy.  He will be remembered as someone who could always be counted on in a pinch. 

Brian took great pride in his work and served as a Field Services Manager at Morris South, Charlotte, NC for more than 23 years.  When he wasn’t traveling with his work, he was usually at home spending time with his partner, Lisa, or with his Dad, restoring his 1966 Mustang. 

Brian is preceded in death by his mother, Helen Watkins Amerson.

He is survived by his father and step-mother, John and Kathy Watkins of Canton, GA; his sister, Karen Watkins; and his longtime partner, Lisa Watson.

There will be a Celebration of Life Memorial for Brian at 2pm this Saturday, August 12, 2023, at Poole Funeral Home, located at: 1970 Eagle Dr., Woodstock, GA 30189.
