He is survived by his wife, Pauline Watson; two daughters, Dr. Sterline Brown of St. Louis, Mo., and Dr. Earline Pinckley of Huntsville, Ala.; and two sons Judge S. A. Watson Jr. of Huntsville, Ala., and James A. Watson of Tampa, Fla.; three brothers, Clyde, Paul and Virgil; two sisters, Mrs. Maggie Moody and Mrs. Daisy Rice; eight grandchildren and one great-grandson. Brother Watson was a gospel preacher who preached the truth in love but without fear or favor. Standing for the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth he successfully opposed (both privately and in public debates) all forms of error. Beginning his preaching in 1929 he continued to serve as evangelist for churches in Missouri, Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, California. For about 15 years he served the West End church in St. Louis, Mo. In addition to local work he was used extensively in gospel meetings. Funeral services were conducted at the Memorial Parkway church in Huntsville, Ala., by Guy N. Woods assisted by Gary Bradley and this writer. As brother G. K. Wallace wrote."'And there were giants in the earth in those days.' The Bible uses the word giant to describe men of ‘great renoun' and of ‘great stature.' In the early part of this century there were gospel preachers who were truly giants. Sterl A. Watson was one of them." --- J. C. Davidson., Memorial Parkway Church of Christ, 3703 Memorial Parkway, Huntsville, AL 35801. - Gospel Advocate December 20, 1984, page 760.
