Brendan Guy Watts

June 30, 2020


Brendan Guy Watts of Accokeek, Maryland died at his home on June 30, 2020.  He was 53 years old.

Brendan was a native of the Moyaone Reserve, raised in the home his parents built and where his mother still lives.  He loved exploring the woods and streams on the Maryland shore of the Potomac.  He spent his childhood summers at the Moyaone Pool and was a record-holding member of the Accokeek Swim Team. 

Brendan earned a B.S. in Construction Management from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore.  He was a carpenter and contractor.  Truly a craftsman, his work was both creative and meticulous. 

Brendan was proud of the many projects he worked on, including building his own home in Port Tobacco, MD.  But more than anything else, he was most proud of his twin children – Sydney and Kyle.  

Brendan is survived by his children Sydney of Beltsville, Maryland and Kyle of  Lincoln Park, Michigan, and their mother Christina Watts; his mother Eileen Watts of Accokeek; his sister Kirsten Watts (Shane LaBrake) of Accokeek; sister Erin Watts and her sons Nathan and Dylan of Timonium, MD; and brother Ian Watts (Tanya Bub) and their children Anouk and Arlo of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. He is predeceased by his father Gordon Watts.

He was a man of many interests, but his passion was spending time on the water in a canoe or kayak, fishing from the shore, and camping with his children.
