Eric Joshua Watson, 34, husband of Alexa Combs Watson, passed away Wednesday, August 27, 2014. Born in Morehead, KY, he was the son of George W. and Vicki Martin Watson of Fleming County.

A graduate of Fleming County High School, Eric was a farmer on the family farm specializing in raising Swine.

A member of the National Swine Registry, Eric attended the Sharkey Church in Farmers, KY. Eric had many hobbies and interests. He loved 'gaming' or playing video games with his son, watching movies, playing guitar as well as playing drums, and he enjoyed weightlifting. Eric loved the outdoors and was an avid hunter and fisherman. He loved the Green Bay Packers, win or lose, and like every other Kentuckian, he was an Avid UK Basketball fan. But as much as he loved doing all of the things for mentioned, most of all, Eric loved spending time with his family and friends. He will forever be greatly missed.
