He was the mischievous, protective little brother to Carl Brock and the influential older brother to Walton Keith and Mark Zane. Together the 4 boys took on the world and had many misadventures and that made for great stories to tell later in life.

Michael met Lisa the love of his life and insisted on marrying her 6 weeks after they met. Together they had 2 children Logan Michael and Nancy Ann. They went on many adventures and journeys. One of his greatest adventures and honors was becoming a Pappy to 6 beautiful grandchildren.

Michael graduated from Garland High School and went into the sign business in 1972 where spent the next 50 years with Federal Heath Sign Company.

Son, Logan Michael Watt and daughter-in-law Lori Ann. Daughter, Nancy Ann Watt. Grandchildren Angelika, Abraham, Ava, Lily, Alice, and Violet. Brothers Carl Brock Watt and Mark Zane Watt. Nieces Angel Mora, Amada Lenore Turner and husband Jim, Carly Lauren Watt, and Anna Watt. Great nieces Alysa, Jessalyn, and Priscilla.

A memorial service to celebrate the life of Michael will be held at 2:00 pm on Saturday, July 23, 2022 at North Dallas Funeral Home – 2710 Valley View Lane, Dallas, Texas 75234 with Dewey Hargraves officiating.

In lieu of flowers please we are asking donations be made to the Pulmonary Fibrosis Foundation to help fund the research that is so desperately needed to find treatments and hopefully one day cure for the catastrophic disease that ultimately took his and his brother’s life.

    Mike was a great guy. I worked with him since 1972. He always had a joke to tell you every time you ran into him. We’ve been known to have a social cocktail and a good cigar now and then. God Bless you brother and I’ll see on the other side.

    Mike, I always looked forward to visiting Euless knowing I’d bump into you at least once. You were the friendliest guy and always asked about the rest of the gang in L.A. We are all sorry to see you go.

"If I could give 6 stars I would. Aria made a difficult easier to deal with by basically taking care of everything in an efficient but very empathetic manner. I can speak highly enough of Dusty Martin, who helped us with all of the planning and logistics. He was incredibly understanding and helpful."

"Nothing prepares you for the grief you go through when losing a child. I called this funeral home at 2:00 am broken and could barely talk. The amount of compassion and empathy they showed me immediately let me know I found the right place to cremate my son. I cannot thank them enough for their professionalism, SINCERE concern, and commitment to making sure my son was honored in the most respectful way. I hope this Funeral home values her as much as my family and I do."

"I can’t say enough about how helpful and professional Dusty Martin, the funeral director at the Aria Cremation location on NW Highway has been. From my initial call, he was kind and informative. My friend died at home while on hospice and she was picked up in about an hour after receiving the call from the hospice nurse. The person who arrived to pick her up was also very professional/respectful and allowed us to take as much time with her as we wished. When I met with Dusty the next day about arrangements, he explained the process and options available without being pushy or trying to “sell” extras. Throughout the process, he kept me informed and, for example, was careful to be certain I understood the cost of the obituary I wanted and offered some options for reducing that cost if I wished. When I stopped by for another reason and started talking about some of the problems I was having with the pictures and media I hoped to use at a memorial lunch I was planning, he not only listened patiently but offered technology advice and let me use his personal media player. I have had experience arranging cremations for four others using two other local companies, and this experience with Dusty at Aria has been by far the best one I have had."

"My Daddy’s service and our family experience at Aria Northwest Highway was truly blessed. Funeral Director Dustin Martin is the kind of person that you would like to see on a more regular basis – but in his industry – you hope to not see him that often. That being said – THANK YOU DUSTIN for your unending kindness, compassion and friendship through the process. Meeting you and discussing Dallas History, Find A Grave and my Dad’s lifelong contributions to the great City of Dallas was simply wonderful! In memory of my dad James A. Dodd, Sr. – I want to personally thank you and let you know that you made everything better in that moment. Your calling to “Be There” is spot on. Aria has a one in a million guy in you! Bling Blinky of TEXAS Shout Out: God Bless You!!"
