• Obituary

Rev. Choice E. Watson dedicated more than 50 years spreading the gospel message of Christ. He pastored for 25 years at several Upstate churches.

Watson died Tuesday. He was 85.

Watson, a native of Lyman, served in the Army and National Guard for 30 years.

When Watson retired in 1997 his library had more than 1,200 books on religion and ministry-related subjects. He donated his library to North Greenville University because of his belief in the school’s mission.

Watson was honored with many awards for his volunteerism in community and church work.
