GA light transport was being vectored for descent and then given direct dqo, later changed to a 360 degree heading. All aircraft going this way were deviating because of extensive thunderstorms. Aircraft was mistakenly left on a heading that took him into R4001. Flow control knew that aircraft was deviating and should have done something to help this potential problem. The watch supervisor should have known and should have stopped this routing prior to this time because of R4001 being so close to this airway.

Title: ACFT EXITED AIRWAY AND ENTEED RESTRICTED AREA WITHOUT COORD. OPERATIONAL DEVIATION.
Narrative: GA LTT WAS BEING VECTORED FOR DSCNT AND THEN GIVEN DIRECT DQO, LATER CHANGED TO A 360 DEG HDG. ALL ACFT GOING THIS WAY WERE DEVIATING BECAUSE OF EXTENSIVE TSTMS. ACFT WAS MISTAKENLY LEFT ON A HDG THAT TOOK HIM INTO R4001. FLOW CTL KNEW THAT ACFT WAS DEVIATING AND SHOULD HAVE DONE SOMETHING TO HELP THIS POTENTIAL PROBLEM. THE WATCH SUPVR SHOULD HAVE KNOWN AND SHOULD HAVE STOPPED THIS ROUTING PRIOR TO THIS TIME BECAUSE OF R4001 BEING SO CLOSE TO THIS AIRWAY.
