Monday, September 23, NORTH TULSA lost one of its soundest advisers and favorite sons.
If you are looking for an example of character and intellect for your children and grandchildren to follow, of course, you, yourself, are first in line to become that person.
But, Mr. Tiller Watson's life was proof that we don't have to look so far for others we can hold up as our superheroes.
Science fiction is fun (and becoming less and less fiction), the Marvel comics universe is fascinating, but, it turns out that in our own homes and right next door to us are, really, the most important people who will ever live.
Tiller Watson, Jr., born in Tulsa, Oklahoma on September 10, 1951, was living proof of this.
His superpowers were extreme kindness, extraordinary intelligence and unlimited wisdom...to none of which he ever added the slightest bit of one-upmanship.
His Tulsa CENTRAL HS classmates, graduates in what were tumultuous times in the USA in 1969, remember him as a man having an "incredible impact on many."
According to Willie Robison, who worked for Mr. Watson, Tiller Watson "was the Tulsa MARTIN LUTHER KING." And, here's why, if you knew Mr. Watson, you realized "he was preparing you every day so that you'd be ready to take over your share of the shift," Robison said.
November 10, 2015 was one of MR. WATSON's proudest days. He received from iconic radio host TOM JOYNER the REAL FATHERS-REAL MEN FATHER OF THE YEAR AWARD, sponsored by PERRY BROADCASTING CO. The OKAPI event center was filled with friends, family and, of course, PAM JOHNSON WATSON his wife of 36 years, and the couple's five sons, JAMES, TILLER, JR., EMEKA, DARIUS and CHRISTOPHER, their wives and many of his 13 grandchildren.
Four great grandchildren were to follow.
Tiller Watson graduated from LANGSTON UNIVERSITY in 1974 with a degree in business and after working in sales at DOENGES BROTHERS FORD, BURROUGHS OFFICE SUPPLY and 15 years as Chief Financial Officer for AMERICAN BEAUTY PRODUCTS in North Tulsa, announced to wife PAM he was going into business for himself.
The TILLER WATSON COMPANY was born.
MR. TILLER WATSON, JR was laid to rest on Saturday, October 5, 2019, but the "impact" his life will continue to have "on many" will never die.
