Sterling began his dental practice in 1983 and was still working at the time of his passing. Sterling was a passionate academic of dentistry and continued his education at the Pankey Institute. Despite many other opportunities after dental school, his love and passion for his family and Gadsden County brought him back home.
Sterling enjoyed hunting and fishing, bike riding, reading, politics and most of all spending time with his family. He spent his life helping others in need and upon his death he was able to help once again by donating three of his major organs to three recipients in need, as well as 50 to 100 recipients through tissue donations.
Sterling is survived by his loving wife of 31 years, Karen White Watson, his daughter, Chelsea Watson of Seattle, his son, Lance Watson and daughter, Savanah Watson of Quincy, his 3 brothers, Archie (Robin), David (Janice), Brent, his sister, Rita Faulkner (Kevin) and father, Walter Watson Jr. He is preceded in death by his mother, Mary Willie Watson, his niece, Kalen Watson, and nephew, Michael Guilford.
