Watts celebrate 50 years
Richard and Betty Watts celebrated 50 years of marriage on April 14.

The couple was married in Charlotte, N.C., April 14, 1962. Richard’s job with Whirlpool Corp. moved the couple to Farragut in 1973 and both got involved in Farragut sports — a “hobby” that kept both busy for more than 39 years.

The family spent a lot of time on the ballfields and at the old school gym. When their son, Brad, played baseball at Farragut High School, Richard and Betty worked hard raising money to put lights up at the baseball field.

Richard was commissioner of CBFO for many years and coached for more than 12 years while Betty coached cheerleading and ran the concession stands at Northshore. Richard has since run the score clock at home varsity games for more than 25 years.

Betty for the most part was a stay-at-home mom who babysat over the years. She kept many of the teachers’ and principals’ babies from Farragut Middle School.

Richard retired from Whirlpool after working there for 45 years.

They have been members of Knoxville First Church of the Nazarene for 39 years. They have raised three children: Brad Watts of Knoxville, Dina Hodges (David) of Knoxville, and Shannon Gossage (Adam) of Knoxville. They have nine grandchildren.
