Wichita Falls "Bee Man" to be Laid to Rest

Friends and family will say goodbye to man affectionately known as "Bee Man."

Bennie Watson died Sunday at the age of 86. He was a life-long resident of Wichita Falls and founder and president of the Red River Valley Bee Keepers Association.

He was a bookkeeper and prepared income taxes for many years, and also was a teacher. Bennie was always available to us here at KFDX when we had questions about bees and he was a valuable resource to the community.

He would respond to anyone in the community who found a hive near their home and he'd remove it for free.

Services are Tuesday, April 22nd at 3 pm in the Owens and Brumley Funeral Home chapel. Burial will follow at Crestview Memorial Park. Members of the Red River Valley Bee Keepers Association will serve as pallbearers.
