Henry James Watt

Henry James Watt aka “Ricky” was born May 22, 1961 in Electric Mills Ms.  He was 5th out of 9 children.

Henry confessed Christ and was baptized.  He graduated from Danville High School in 1980.  He also played little league baseball and was an avid fisherman.  He enjoyed doing crossword puzzles and watching family feud.

Henry worked at Teepak for several years before moving to St. Louis Mo. to continue his employment.  He worked several jobs the six years he lived there including Coletta as a steel worker and the Pepsi Soda Company as a distributor.

Henry kept a smile and was friendly to everyone and a stranger to no one.  Some might say he had the gift to talk. We will miss his smile, laughter, and loving attitude. 

On October 28, 2020 Henry received his wings and transitioned to Heaven.  He was preceded in death by his father Roosevelt Bryant Sr.
