Our prayers and condolences go out to the family of Ronald Watson as well as to the members of Smokin' Hot during this time. In a post on social media earlier this evening, Gary Lowder and Smokin' Hot made the following announcement: "No words can express our sadness right now ..Gary R Lowder and I received the worst possible news a few minutes ago about our amazing Sax player passed away last night RON WATSON . We are devastated, and heartbroken beyond words.... Please keep his wife Theresa and his family/friends in your prayers. Ron had just retired in July of this year and had recently recorded some new music he was so excited about. The SMOKIN HOT FAMILY will truly miss our RON ..he was just not our Sax player he was FAMILY ....WE LOVE YOU RON ..Fly Hi our sweet friend and brother"
We've included the original post below from the band's Facebook page along with a video that was shared on Gary's Facebook page.
