He was 89.
Watson died at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, where he was hospitalized recently after falling at his home in Deep Gap, in the Blue Ridge Mountains. He underwent abdominal surgery while in the hospital and had been in critical condition for several days.
Arthel “Doc” Watson’s mastery of flatpicking helped make the case for the guitar as a lead instrument in the 1950s and 1960s, when it was often considered a backup for the mandolin, fiddle or banjo. His fast playing could intimidate other musicians, even his own grandson, who performed with him.
Richard Watson said in a 2000 interview with The...

Spruce Pine, He was an active member at St Luciens Catholic Church and was a member of the Church Council. He served on the Mitchell County Economic Development Commission and a member of the Blue Ridge Hospital System Board of Directors. In Rockingham, He was an active member of St. James Catholic Church and was on the parish council. He was also Vice President of the Richmond County Amateur Radio Club.
When he was not involved in community work, he enjoyed fishing, hunting, target shooting, woodworking, computers and Amateur Radio(W1GFM). He loved demonstrating amateur radio for the local Spruce Pine school children and on one occasion provided them an opportunity to speak with the astronauts aboard the space shuttle earning him “coolest Dad in the school” status. He was also a pilot for close to 40 years and loved to take people up for their first plane ride.
He loved to make people laugh and always had a joke to share. He was a dedicated and loving father and husband. Most important to him was the time he spent with friends and family, especially his five grandchildren . He took every opportunity to teach them many of the skills and lessons he acquired throughout his life. Your stories, love and presence will remain in our hearts forever and we love you.
The family wishes to thank everyone for their love and support during this time. We welcome you to share your memories and comments at: http://www.watson-kingfuneralhome.com/obituaries/Richard-Barber1961559560/#/TributeWall

Most Outstanding Wrestler.
“I just wrestle to the best of my abilities,” said Starkes, who had to work overtime for a 5-3 decision against Blue Ridge’s Jordon Ludd in the final.
Greenville’s Antonio Moore became a two-time county champion by winning at 182, and the Red Raiders’ Duncan Benson took first at 172.
Eastside had three champions: Jacob Simmons (140), Marlin Houtz (154) and Tre Long (285).
“Across the board it wasn’t the best finish, but we certainly had some kids do well,” Eastside coach Jack Kosmicki said. “Jacob winning was huge because (Riverside’s) Coates (Carpenter) is a very good wrestler.”
Simmons earned a 2-1 decision over Carpenter, a two-time state runner-up.
The 134-pound final between Eastside’s Clay Walker and Riverside’s Austin Such was stopped by the referee with Such leading 4-3 in the second period.
Walker had been battling an injury to his left shoulder incurred in the semifinals. The result was a second county title for Such.
Mauldin’s Charlie Cook won his second straight county title, placing first at 122, and Travelers Rest’s June Downs claimed the 197-pound crown and improved to 35-1.
Greer had two champions: Jalen Chapman at 128 and Storm Nelson at 147.

SPARTANBURG — Caleb Rowe has admittedly been in his element during preparation for the Shrine Bowl, and not just because Blue Ridge’s senior quarterback -- bound for the University of Maryland -- belongs among the best players in the state.
“I’m livin’ large over here,” Rowe said following Wednesday‘s second practice at Spartanburg High School.
He flashed a smile as wide as the linemen he’s had in front of him this week.
Rowe, as energetic and outgoing as he is talented, said the football and the camaraderie have be...

The employees of the acquired seven retail branches and the trust company will become employees of CertusBank.
CertusBank, a subsidiary of Blue Ridge Holdings Inc., has $1.8 billion in assets, 35 branch locations, three operations centers and several business offices in South Carolina, North Carolina, Georgia and northern Florida.
Earlier this year, the bank acquired the former CommunitySouth in Easley, First Georgia of Franklin, Ga., and Atlantic Southern Bank of Macon, Ga.
CertusBank has said it plans to grow aggressively throughout the Southeast. The bank will locate its corporate headquarters in developer Bob Hughes’ mixed-use complex at the old Woolworth’s site in downtown Greenville.
