Paul Watson Jarrett passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on April 14, 2021 at TidalHealth Nanticoke in Seaford.

He was born on July 2, 1930 in Cambridge to the late Elsie and Norman Abraham Jarrett. He was also preceded in death by his sons, Paul Lee Jarrett and Frederick Watson. He had a sister; Mildred, and brothers; Shriver and Robert Lee. He grew up and went to school in Cambridge. In his years he worked odd jobs and one was for The Dixie Bargain Center Music Store, where he purchased a guitar. He soon found he had a gift and would go on to become one of the best guitar players on the Eastern Shore.

In 1950 he married the love of his life, Ruth Coulbourne, and together they raised four children; Paul Lee, Polly Ward (Rusty), Diane Smith, and Frederick Watson. He was a wonderful father, great husband, and a treasure to his grandchildren; Leigh McKinney, Jan (Ken) Hayden, Starla Jarrett, Matthew (Samantha) Jarrett, Daniel Jarrett, Shane (Joanne) Ward, Katie (John) Durso, Michael Jarrett and 14 great-grandchildren.  

He was a gentle heart and had a great sense of humor; he could fix anything and helped everyone he loved. He loved cars, country music, pets, his guitar, his garden, tomatoes, seafood, and cowboys. His favorite artists were Chet Atkins and Jimmy Swaggert, but his most favorite people were his wife and family. He lived a good long life and was a good person; he was one of a kind that touched everybody that knew him. He was a U.S. Army Veteran, he has worked at the Seaford Golf Course, Scholls Printing Co. as a Linotype Opr., was a painter, and he played lead guitar for Bunkey Eye and the Orbits at the Northwood Bar in Salisbury for 15 years; three nights a week.

He has many friends that will never forget him and miss his wit and charm. He was a shining star, a sharp dresser with beautiful hair and many admirers. He would have been famous to the world, but he chose to share his gifts and talents with his family and friends. He will be greatly missed so much, especially his smile. We will always carry him in our hearts with many treasured memories. He gave us all he had; he gave us his love.
