Nicholas Ogden Watts, known to all as the warm, affable, and widely loved “Nick” passed away
on February 10, 2021 peacefully in his home of natural causes. He was enjoying his last year of law
school at OU.
In his unfairly short life, Nick was able to accomplish more than most do in a lifetime. Nick
started out as a precocious, extremely handsome young child. He was always the ever-guiding mentor to
his younger brother and best friend, Weston.
In addition to his remarkable good nature, Nick will forever be remembered for his many
accomplishments as a debater. Nick won the 6A Oklahoma debate championship high school at, under
his coach and dear friend, Bryan Gaston. After receiving a scholarship and debating for a year at Wake
Forest University, Nick was drawn back home to the University of Oklahoma to debate for his soon-to-be
mentor, Jackie Massie, and his new incredible debate partner (and ultimately closest friend in college) RJ
Giglio.
At OU, Nick and RJ went on to tremendous success, winning several tournaments, including
significantly two CEDA National Debate Tournaments for our OU Debate family. Of the hundreds of
debaters, Nick was awarded Top Speaker at his last national championship tournament. However,
consistent with his trademark humility, he was proud but never boasted.
Needless to say, the whole community of debaters was exceptionally proud of Nick. Following
debate, Nick went on to coach at numerous debate camps, had the unique honor of coaching debate at
Harvard University, and ultimately spread debate for 3 years in both Korea and China. That was not an
easy thing to do but his commitment was to his students and his craft. Since his passing, the messages
from his students have been inspiring.
Despite his numerous significant accomplishments, his friends and family will most reflect upon
Nick’s profound kindness, intelligence, and empathic connection to others. Nick was always available,
always extremely loyal, and loved more deeply than any person. His commitment to his family was
unwavering. Nick was at once both a momma’s boy and a daddy’s boy. He was absolutely loved by all
who had the privilege of meeting him.
Over the last two years, Nick suffered from a debilitating condition called Guillain-Barré
syndrome. This disease is very rare but had a devastating impact on Nick’s life. Nick’s family is
committed to furthering research about rehabilitative opportunities that must be provided to those with
Nick’s condition who continue to suffer.
Nick is survived by his incredible mother and father, Beverley and Philip Watts, and his brother
and sister-in-law, Weston and Maggie Watts. He is further survived by two uncles, Kenny Watts and
Gary Quarles, aunt Shantay Watts, cousins Stacy, Cassie, Trey, Nathan and Stacy’s children, Cameron
and Adison.
