PHOTO: South Orange Elks Remember SORS’s Weyman Watson and Rudy Reynolds With Donation

South Orange Elks Ron Housley, Annemarie Conte and Michael G. Leonard present Troy Balog and members of the South Orange Rescue Squad a check for $1,000 in honor of their members Weyman Watson and Rudy Reynolds.

Weyman W. Watson, 61, a former Navy airman and South Orange Elk, died earlier this year as a result of a fire in his home on Warwick Avenue in South Orange. He was a beloved community member who worked hard to perpetuate the memory of his father, Spann Watson, a Tuskegee airman. Per Newsday, “As a family historian, public speaker, member of the nonprofit heritage group The Tuskegee Airmen Inc. and a race car owner, the younger Watson has helped preserve and promote the legacy of his father and the approximately 1,000 other African-American men who took to the skies against Nazi Germany.”

Rudy Reynolds was a life member of the Elks (42 years).  He had retired to Fort Pierce, Fl where he passed away in May 2017. His obituary states in part: “He was always available to volunteer his help with any organization when requested and is fondly remembered by many for his kind and gentle spirit. He was adored by his family; the countless happy memories are a blessing but cannot fill the void left by his passing.”
