A Gordon Watson b. 3 April 1903 d. Nov 1984, Eugene. His soc. sec. # was assigned in CA before 1951. Source: Social Security Death Index.
I think he might have been visiting or temporarily living in CA when he died.
There is a volunteer, Debbie, who will look up obits on the Eugene Register Guard. She's listed on Random Acts of Genealogical Kindness, www.raogk.org, choose Oregon, choose Lane Co.
Hopefully his obituary will say where he's buried. If not, check out USGenWeb Tombston Transcription Project Lane Co., OR, www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~cemetery/oregon/lane.html .
