November 4, 1959 – April 25, 2019
Thomas S. Watson, age 59, passed away peacefully at home on April 25, 2019. He was born November 4, 1959 to Wendell and Grethyll Watson (nee Bray). Tom spent most of his life in the communities of Pemberton, Clinton, Cache Creek, and Ashcroft. After receiving his Red Seal Electrical Certification, Tom worked for his company, Walt Adams Electric for most of his adult life. He also worked for School District 74, as well as volunteering his time coaching soccer, participating in the Cache Creek Graffiti Days, and as an acting member of his union.
Tom truly lived life to the fullest and was always a spirited, friendly, and helpful member of the community. Tom’s kindness and hardworking personality reached all those he touched in a deep and positive way.
Tom is survived by his children, Meghan (Duncan), Justin, and Elijah, his granddaughter, Sierra, his brothers Jim (Donna), John, and Mark, several nieces and nephews, life long friend, Kim and his adopted, extended family, Kayla, Eamon, and Grace. Tom had recently mourned the death of his brother, Mike (Chris), but had simultaneously gained a profound love and happiness with his girlfriend, Susan.
A celebration of life will be held June 1st at 1:00 pm at the Cache Creek Park. In lieu of flowers, we appreciate your donations and volunteer involvement with the South Cariboo Minor Soccer Association. Tom will be forever missed #LEGEND.
