Obituary for Phillip K. Watson
St. Albans – Phillip K. Watson, 72, a lifelong resident of this area went peacefully to the Lord on Thursday, November 6, 2008, at his home surrounded by his loving family. Born on March 30, 1936, in St. Albans, Phil was the son of the late Osborn and Lorraine (Church) Watson. On April 20, 1957, in St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, Phil married the former Rowaine Pudvar, who survives him. Phil’s zest for life was his family, which was what Phil lived for. His family includes the love of his life, his loving wife of fifty-one years, Rowaine, the apples of his eyes, his two daughters, Sharon Cross and Sheila Rose; his beloved son-in-law, Harold “Bob” Cross; his cherished treasures, his grandchildren-- Shawna Cross, Krystal Pouliot and her partner, Ken Bocash, Jr., Steven Pouliot and Sierra Rose and the two littlest ones, who brought the biggest smiles to his face, his great-grandchildren, Kaydence and Kaleb Bocash. Phil is also survived by his sister-in-law, Janice Brouillette and her husband, Adrian Mooney, whom he enjoyed traveling with, his aunts, Joyce Thibault and her husband, Orin and Janice Murphy and her husband, Ronnie, numerous nieces and nephews and his devoted cat, which he rescued, Sylvester. In addition to his parents, Lorraine and Osborn, he was preceded in death by his in-laws, Esther and Reginald Pudvar. Phil proudly served his country in the 503rd Airborne Infantry. He was a member of Green Mountain Post #1, American Legion for thirty-nine years, as well as a member of St. Albans Lodge #1566, B.P.O.E. for eleven years, where he served as exalted ruler from 2000 to 2001. He was employed at Fonda Container in St. Albans for ten years and then worked at Central Vermont Public Service until his retirement. Some of Phil’s hobbies he enjoyed were playing cards, ice fishing, hunting with his father-in-law, tinkering in his garage, reading western novels and always enjoyed people dropping by to visit. Phil’s family would like to extend a heartfelt thanks to Dr. Zsoldos and his wife, Judy and the Franklin County Home Health Agency, Hospice Program for their caring assistance and to Reverend Herman Benjamin for his spiritual guidance. As per Phil’s wishes, all services will be private and at the convenience of the family. There will be no calling hours.
