Justin Watkins from Wickes, Arkansas born on November 8, 1980 in DeQueen, Arkansas left this life at 38 years old on Ash Wednesday, March 6, 2019. Justin was surrounded by love ones and Christian music for his transition to one of Gods mountains in Heaven.
Justin bravely battled with severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) he sustained seven years ago when he was struck by a vehicle operated by intoxicated driver while in a crosswalk.

He was preceded in death by grandparents: Paul Joseph, Lerntine Compagne, W.C. Watkins, Sr., Christine Watkins, James Smalley, Mary Millaway, David and Mary Talley, and an aunt, June Weishmer.
Justin was sent for cremation under the direction of the Beasley Wood Funeral Home of Mena.
