Carl was born on June 9, 1942 in Brockton, MA to George and Betty (Carmichael) Watters.
He graduated from Aroostook County Regional High School in Mars Hill Maine. He worked fulltime at the Quincy Shipyard with a young family while also going to night school for ten years to earn his Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering from Northeastern University. Carl had numerous accomplishments throughout his thirty-five year career with Stone & Webster allowing him to work in Taiwan for four years and travel the world.
In 1964, he felt blessed to marry the love of his life Mary (Sullivan) Watters. They created a life together in Sandwich, MA with four children and thirteen grandchildren. He will be truly missed by his family Eric and Giovanna Watters (Danielle and Erica), Scott and Richard Watters (Jordan, Sierra and Riley), Lisa and Rick Vasile (Gabrielle, Ava and Andrew) and Debby and Hank Cook (Mary, Kirsten, Juliette, Annalise and Gordie) as well as his three siblings and their spouses, Peter and Linda Watters, Marsha and Steve Hanby and Joy and Al Watters and many nieces and nephews.
Sunsets always had a special place in their lives as a time to relax and reflect. Carl and Mary watched many around the world with a cocktail in their hand with a lifelong dream to visit all 7 continents. They enjoyed sailing and sipping throughout the Caribbean, snorkeling in Tortola, flying kites off the Great Wall of China, safaris and hot air balloon rides over the Serengeti, rowing a Mekong boat in Cambodia, sampling the local wines at the castles in Europe, exploring the Outback and snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, feeding the Kiwi birds in New Zealand, Touring the US National Parks, golfing in Hawaii and cruising through the inside passage of Alaska, and experiencing the engineering complexity of the Panama Canal locks. They enjoyed their last few years together snowbirding in Venice, FL. Carl toured Machu Picchu and the Galapagos with his sister and completed the 7 continent dream with his two daughters walking the El Caminito in Argentina and cruising along side penguins jumping from icebergs in Antarctica.
Anyone who spent time with Carl grew to expect a quiet man with a dry sense of humor who loved to solve puzzles, play card games, chase the golf ball and finish his crosswords. He would also think this is too sappy and has gone on too long but we don’t Shivagit.
