Obituary for Archie Boyd Wathen

Archie Boyd  Wathen
Archie Boyd Wathen, son of the late Andrew Boyd Wathen and Geraldine McGuire Bowman, was born in Lexington, KY on March 12, 1951 and passed away peacefully in Lexington, KY on March 15, 2023 at the age of 72 years and 3 days. He was an Independent Contractor for 48 years, owning several successful businesses in Beattyville and the Lee County area.
Archie leaves behind his two sons, Greg and Byron Wathen both of Beattyville, KY; one beloved granddaughter, Macy Amelia Wathen of Gray Hawk, KY ; sister, Janice (Allan) Stephens of Florence, KY; brother, Paul Wayne (Judy) Wathen of Beattyville, KY; sister, Emily Wilson of Crittenden, KY; niece, Kristy (Tom) Wathen-Pyles of Dunedin, FL; and two nephews, Joe (Amanda) Wilson and Zach (Katie) Wilson both of Crittenden, KY.
A very heartfelt THANK YOU to Sheila Wathen of Beattyville, KY whose compassion and loving devotion to Archie in the last months of his illness gave him the comfort and peace he so desperately needed. Donations can be made to the Bluegrass Hospice Care. They truly were a blessing for Dad during what would be his last flight up into the sky. Pallbearers will be former longtime employees of Dad’s, who were just like family to him and our family: Brian Johnson, Sean Flanigan, Johnny Olinger, Charles Coomer, Brian Morris, Kevin Drake, Nick Webb, Nels Addison, and James Addison.
