Watson Joseph

April 12, 1937 ~ November 17, 2021 (age 84)


Watson Joseph eighty-four years of life was comprised of hard work and service to his

family. He was born in the small town of Pundi in Haiti. He was the third male in a family of

eight children, four boys and four girls. Watson was the only sibling to immigrate to the United

States. As a result, he felt a great responsibility to care for and provide. At the age of thirty he

left Haiti for the Bahamas. In the Bahamas, he endured mistreatments by Whites so that he

could work and send money to his family. In 1969 he returned to Haiti and married Islaine. Unfortunately, Watson could not remain with his wife. He traveled between the two counties

between 1969 and 1980. Forcing him to miss the early years of the lives of his three children.

In 1980 they reunited and started a new life in Miami, which saw the birth of their son


Bobby. Watson spent eighteen years working the graveyard shift as a cook. He didn’t indulge in the luxuries of life. He worked so that his family could enjoy what he could not. One of his joys was playing the guitar, a passion he developed as a young man. His other joy was laughter. Watson loved to laugh. A laughter that

boomed the room. Often prompting his wife to tell him to keep it down. Their union

lasted fifty-two years. Throughout the ups and downs, they grew and strengthened their love,

friendship and family. Watson is survived by his wife Islaine, sons Petit-Watson, Jacson, Bobby

and daughter Ismelie, niece Louise, son-in law Alain grandchildren, Alexandra, Carlos, Marvin,

Maya, Matthew, Olivia and Jonathan. Watson loved, lived and worked hard for his family. He

will be dearly missed.
