Big T’s Game Plan
Who knew Sumter, SC would have home-field advantage with one of the most likable, loveable, kind-hearted people to grace the earth, Mr. Terrance Lavon Watson, affectionately known as “Big T,” born July 21, 1980 to Annetta Watson and Carl Miller.
Terrance graduated from Scott’s Branch High, class of 1999, then attended Claflin University and Central Carolina Technical College until opening his carwash business. He was employed by SC Department of Corrections for 9 years and later by Mercedes Benz Vans (MBV) in Ladson, SC as a welder.
He was a hero to his children and family. Scoring his biggest life touchdown with the “J5,” his beautiful children: Jacquel, Janyia, Jatavia, Javary, and Javien. They weren’t quite enough to be a football team, a game he loved so much. But they will certainly carry on the memories we have of him a giant in life, a gentle soul.
Big T lived his life to the fullest never missing a moment to joke around and make others laugh. Those who knew him well have memories of him enjoying his favorite, pancakes or remember seeing him drive down the street with a huge 49ers crest painted on the top of his old truck! He was certainly a faithful fan and an ever-great fan of our Lord and Savior.
Terrance “Big T” leaves to cherish his memories, his mother Annetta Watson; father Carl Miller; step-dad Haskell McFadden; his heartbeats (J5) Jacquel, Janyia, Jatavia, Javary and Javien; sisters Shuneice Miller, Nicole Miller and Tamika Richardson; nephews Nicolas Miller and Payton Felder, nieces Paige Felder, Victoria Felder and Kaliyah Richardson, aunts Artrell Pugh, Rosa Gibbons, Odell Johnson, Wonnetta Richardson, Alfreda Curry, Judith McCray, Elizabeth Fullwood, Jannette Hilton, Margie Millie, Gladys Miller, Roxie Miller and Deloris Gibbs; Uncles Robert (Gertrude) Watson, Elijah (Dorothy)Watson, James (Romaine) Brailsford, Eugene Watson, Johnnie Miller, and Sammie Lee Miller; best friend Terry “Firt” Ragin; a host of cousins, friends and the infamous class of 1999.
Terrance “Big T” was called home on Thursday, August 26, 2021 at McCleod Regional Medical Center, Florence, South Carolina. It was a sad day and loss of an MVP, but we can all rest assured that he is watching over us from Heaven and dancing in the End Zone!
