John E. Waters

John E. Waters (77) lost his hard-fought battle with cancer on 06/23/2015. His wife Linda, daughter Barb and grandsons Aaron and Patrick were by his side.

John and Linda moved to the Bristol community when they purchased J. Waters Inc., a wood manufacturing company in Ennis. They built a home of John’s design in Bristol and became an integral part of the Bristol community. This home became a gathering place for their large family and many friends and provided many years of fellowship and memories.
In addition to his family, John was devoted to his community; volunteering for the Bristol United Methodist Church, Bristol Volunteer Fire Department and Theatre Rocks. He also enjoyed sailing, singing solos during church services, and dreaming up his next project.

There was nothing that John couldn’t figure out by reading a book or manual. He taught himself to spin wool from angora goats he raised and sheered, and was very proud when he won a second place ribbon in the 2014 Texas State Fair for a woven shawl he made for his wife.

John leaves behind his wife, Linda, of almost 30 years and daughters, Barbara Seabolt, Rebecca Murray, Wendy Waters and Dana Faulkner; and sons, John Waters II and David Arnold. He will be missed by his sister, Janet and her husband, Ed Davidson; 14 grandchildren, 5 great grandchildren, cherished family members and an abundance of dear friends.

A memorial service will be held on Saturday, June 27th at 2:00 p.m. at Bristol United Methodist Church; 104 Church St., Bristol, TX 75119. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the church.
