Patrick Iden Watkins

Patrick Iden Watkins, 80, passed away in the early morning of Jan. 1, 2020.  Patrick passed away in his sleep as peacefully as he lived his life. Cremation has taken place and a memorial service will be in Washington and his cremains will be placed near his childhood home at a later date.  

Above all else, Patrick valued his family and was blessed with four daughters by blood and marriage, Deborah Watkins, Victoria (Gary) Sulenes, Casey (Dave) Bowers, and Patricia Love. He also had a very large and loving extended family.  

Patrick shared his life with his late wives, Joanne Harper Corman and Marjory Stokaasli Watkins. As a grandfather, he left a legacy of six grandchildren, Naomi (Johnathan) Pruneda, Aiden Watkins, Sarah Love, Emma Love, Kent Howard, and Kendra Howard; and three great grandchildren, Aniyah and Alyas Watkins and Elizabeth Pruneda.

Patrick found joy in his career as a Volkswagen automotive mechanic, at his home gardening, fishing on the Naches River, and restoring vintage car miniatures.

He will be remembered and missed by many. His family is very thankful that the good Lord is now watching over him.
