Brian Watkins Obituary, Death – For the motorsport world some sad news Brian Watkins past away last night.Condolences to Family. Our much loved son, little brother, father, and friend to all of those whose lives he touched, Brian Watkins, died away on Tuesday, January 10, 2023. His passing came as a shock to all of us. All of the people whose lives he intervened in remember him as a kind and generous father and friend.
Everyone there will mourn his passing in their own unique ways. Brian Watkins, the fourth and last child of Jerri and Fred Watkins, spent his youth in Bothell, Washington. He was the final kid in the Watkins family. Spending time with his friends, being outside, listening to music, and being active in sports, especially baseball, brought Brian a lot of joy. Brian continued a long-standing custom in his family by enlisting in the military, just like his grandfather and father had done before him. After completing his service in the military, he decided to make his home in Illinois, and he has been a resident of that state for the past 23 years.
He was 41. Fred, Brian’s father, had already passed away before to the birth of his son Brian. His son, Brian Coyne, his mother, Jerri Chase (Cleve), two sisters, Lisa Bivens (Dan) and Kari Dickerson (James), his brother, Matthew Watkins (Abby), eight nieces and nephews, and a great number of other family and friends will remember him with fondness. He will also be missed by a big number of other people.
