Laurence Waters

May 3, 2018

Laurence Waters, son of the late Marion and Donald Waters of Watertown, died Thursday, May 3, 2018, at his home in Watertown at the age of 62.

He graduated from Watertown High School in 1974 and was in the U. S. Marine Corps where he was a military policeman. He attended Cleveland Institute of Electronics for a 3 1/2 year course in digital electronics and MPUs and continued toward a 4 year associated electronic engineering title. His schooling also included attending National Correspondence School for conservation and law and Jeff-Lewis Vocational School for 33 credit hours to receive his CDL. Laurence was over the road for a time until his parents got sick and he was needed at home.

He had a utility patent in the US entitled "Aerospace and Space Vehicle Propulsion," #6179250_B1. This patent resulted in a new category and 8 subclasses. He also possessed a European patent in the United Kingdom and Germany with the same invention and new category and subclasses. He converted his correspondence course in electronics into Lotus format which resulted in 155 copyrights. He also acquired another patent in the US, #D580465_S. Laurence enjoyed sporting clays for 25 years and received several trophies. He also enjoyed PS space SIM games that mainly used joysticks, going to the movies, and scenic traveling throughout the seasons. He was a trained Blackjack dealer at the Akwesasne Casino in Hogansburg and liked playing cards at a casino with his friends. He was a long time member of both the Lincoln League and the Watertown Sportsmen's Club, holding official status in both. Laurence was involved with Judo and instructed for a few years. He was financially comfortable and is survived by cousins, aunts, and uncles.

Calling hours will be held at Cummings Funeral Service, Inc., Watertown on Tuesday, May 8, from 8:30 - 9:30AM followed by the funeral mass celebrated at St. Patrick's Church at 10AM with Fr. David Deluca, MSC presiding. Burial will be in St. Mary's Cemetery, Clayton. Online condolences to his family may be posted at www.cummingsfuneral.com.

Rest in peace Larry. You will be missed. So many memories from Childhood friend to adult buddy. Life is short and your passing has changed my outlook on life. Wish I could turn back the clock and tell you how much I valued our friendship. Hopefully you knew even though I didn't say the words.

We had coffee together with Elmer Church almost every day Monday thru a Friday. I will miss him a lot. Our discussions were always interesting. We may not have agreed on everything, but he was a friend that I will miss. Thoughts and prayers to all.
