Velton Virgil Watts - nicknamed Squeaky, 83 of Leander, Texas died Saturday morning, September 8, 2018 in his home. He was born on March 7, 1935 in Austin, Texas (Travis County), to Sam and Jessie (Wade) Watts.

Velton lived in Leander all his life. He attended Leander schools. He as a member of the Texas National Guard.

Our daddy loved to watch Dallas Cowboys play on the television and sometimes he would get so mad at them. He loved putting together puzzles, camping, hunting and fishing. I remember him telling me that before our brother Terry went to heaven they were coming back from hunting one morning and Terry asked "Dad, do you know why the tombstones all face the East towards the morning sun?" My daddy replied, "That is the way Jesus will come when he comes for us." So wonderful that my brother asked my daddy that question.

Our daddy was a devoted husband, father and grandfather. A wonderful Uncle Squeaky to numerous nieces and nephews and a wonderful friend.

Velton is survived by his wife Ethel Marie Watts (Hart); 3 children: Virginia Marie (Watts) Dailey, Ernest Milton Watts and Nina Gail (Watts) Warwick. He is also survived by 11 grandchildren, 10 great grandchildren, his brother Sammy Watts, and his cat, Buttercup, who will miss him feeding her.
