Watts Funeral Home was established in 1943 by Joseph Watts, in the small city of Union Point, Georgia. Mr. Watts has always strived to provide exceptional service in a professional manner and his motto was that “No one is refused”. He made sure that everyone in the community knew that he and his staff were there to help them through one of the most difficult times in a family’s life.
Mr. Watts, along with his wife Rozie, John Allen Jr., and Roy Jackson continued to run the business until Mr. Watts became ill in 1981. At that time, he asked his eldest son Tommy Joe Watts to return to Union Point and take over the business. Mr. Watts passed away in December 1982. Tommy continued to operate the business with his mother until her death in March 1988.
In March 2000, as a result of hard work, sacrifices and planning, Tommy completed construction of a new funeral home across the street from the original funeral home, which is still standing. The new funeral home has a chapel, three viewing rooms, and a casket room. This was done to expand our services to more fully meet the needs of our families.
Family is important to us and our business is an extension of our family. Most of our staff lives in the community and has worked with us for over 20 years. Tommy also has a niece who serves as a licensed funeral director for the funeral home, and another who serves as the pre-need coordinator. And, with the support of his wife Janie, Tommy continues to serve the community and surrounding counties with the motto “Never Forget a Family”, which is what was instilled in him by his father.
