- About Us
Kenneth Watkins, Jr., lovingly called Bubba by those closest to him, returned to his heavenly home on January 19, 2019. In doing so, he shed the pains of illness and opened his eyes to see the face of his Lord and Savior.
His devotion to his family and his firm belief in God supported him during his health struggle and ultimately gave him peace. Bubba will be remembered for his deep adoration and devotion to his three daughters, Engrid, Kennedi, and McKenzie, who were the joy of his life and he took extreme pride in their accomplishments.
Kenneth loved his dear mother Mrs. Mamie E. Watkins who constantly wrote prayers for the success of his business. He was blessed with his dear mother and loving family who were a constant source of strength for him and he will always be remembered by his sisters Diane Atkins, Fredonia Watkins, Ginger Rubin, and Brenda Watkins. His family takes comfort in knowing that his pain is no more and he is singing praises to God above until we all meet again.
A celebration of his life will take on Saturday, January 26, 2019 at 1:00 PM at New Hill CME Church, located at 8725 Springridge Texas Line Road in Keithville, LA. Open visitation will be held at Heavenly Gates Funeral Home on Friday, January 25, from 12 noon until closing. He will lie in state on Saturday from 12 noon to 1:00 PM
