Alvis Watson

April 23, 1943 ~ December 26, 2021 (age 78)

Obituary

Mr. Alvis Watson, 78, of Bronx, New York (formerly of Sanford, NC), entered into rest on Saturday, December 26, 2021 at Montefiore Medical Center Wakefield Campus, Bronx, New York.

Alvis Steve Watson was born on April 4, 1943, to the late Clarence and Mary (Fox) Watson who both preceded him in death.  Alvis entered eternal rest on December 26, 2021.

Alvis was preceded in death by his twin brother Allen Samuel Watson, his daughter Jennifer McLeod, and his uncle Clarence Watson.

Alvis had a great love for working on cars. So on any day, you would see him and his uncle, Clarence Fox under someone’s hood.

At an early age, Alvis moved to Connecticut to live with his cousin Alphonso Watson, and from there he moved to NY.  From time to time, he would come home for a visit.  Alvis lived in North Carolina for one year, but returned to New York.  He would call almost every Friday night, talking for hours.  The telephone calls will truly be missed.

Alvis leaves to cherish his memories, his brother Clarence Watson of Sanford, NC; his sister, Sandra Watson of Sanford, NC; one aunt, Aunt Margaret Tomlinson of Sanford, NC; 4 children, Tony (Lorraine) McGilvery of Olivia, NC; Tony Quick of Sanford, NC; Sharon (James) Moore of Sanford, NC, and Andrew Palazzola of Bronx, NY.  Alvis had eight grandchildren and three great grandchildren; and a host of nieces, nephews, and other relatives.

Please keep the family and friends of Alvis Watson in your thoughts and prayers. 

McLeod Funeral Home believes in placing your safety first. For the safety of you and those around you, masks are required before entering the building.

​Arrangements are entrusted to McLeod Funeral Home of Sanford, North Carolina.
