Duncan McNeill (Neill) Watson, Jr., died at Morrison Manor (Hospice of Scotland County) in Laurinburg, NC, on November 1, 2013.
Born February 17, 1946, to Duncan McNeill (Pete) Watson and Mary Fletcher Hoggard Watson, Neill grew up in Wagram, NC, graduating from Wagram High School in 1964. A loyal Tarheel fan, Neill received his B.S. degree in Pharmacy from UNC-Chapel Hill in 1969 and practiced pharmacy in Laurinburg for many years. Neill supported family and friends in subtle ways; he was an excellent listener, and he did not judge others. He treated everyone he met with respect. It was impossible not to love him.

When faced with the diagnosis of cancer, Neill did not flinch, exhibiting grace, serenity, strength, courage, humility, and even wit. He reassured those around him constantly, saying, "Whichever way it goes, I will be all right. It is in the hands of God.”

Neill leaves behind to cherish his memory his beloved wife, Sarah; her children, Carl McIntyre (Elizabeth), Kathy Morris, and Mike McIntyre; grandchildren, Grace, Liza, and Sawyer McIntyre; sister, Mary Wayne Watson; niece, Rachel McNeill Watson Bahler, and countless extended family members and friends.

A memorial service will be held at Spring Hill Baptist Church, Wagram, NC, at 11:00 a.m.on Friday, November 8, followed by a reception in the educational building behind the church. The family will receive friends at McDougald Funeral Home, Laurinburg, from 6—8:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 7. Memorials in Neill’s name may be made to Spring Hill Baptist Church, 24220 Main Street, P.O Box 195, Wagram, NC 28396, or to the Hospice of Scotland County, 610-B Lauchwood Drive, Laurinburg, NC 28352.
