Mark Lee Watkins Obituary

Mark Lee Watkins, 66, of Russiaville, passed away at 5:21 p.m. on Sunday, February 4, 2024, at Community Howard Regional Health. He was born April 19, 1957, in Tipton County, to Paul H. and Patricia A. (Cole) Watkins.

Mark graduated from Haworth High School in 1975, earned an Automotive Technical Certificate from Ivy Tech, and was a Registered Polysomnographic Technologist (RPSGT). He worked as a RPSGT for Ascension St. Vincent Kokomo for over 15 years. Prior to that, he worked in a variety of roles for Coca-Cola Bottling, Kokomo for nearly 25 years.

In his spare time, he enjoyed being outdoors and working with his hands. He was always convinced there wasn’t anything he couldn’t fix or build. His mechanical skills turned into a lifelong passion for cars of all types with a particular fondness of classic panel vans and Corvettes.

Survivors include his children, Paul (Jordyn) Watkins and Markus Watkins; granddaughter, Lillian Watkins; and the mother of his children, Carolyn Cash.

He was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Greg Watkins.

In keeping with Mark’s wishes, no public services will be held. Cremation has been entrusted to Stout & Son Funeral Home in Russiaville. Messages of condolence may be left online at
