Lewis Waterman, Jr. Obituary

Lewis A. (Tony) Waterman, Jr., 94, passed away at Providence Point after living there for 14 years and for 42 years in Mt. Lebanon. He is survived by his beloved wife of 71 years – Pat – three children: Lisa (Mark) Waterman Gray, Deb (Ben) Waterman Johns,, Win (Gretchen) Waterman; nine grandchildren, and two great grandchildren. He and Pat attended their grandchildren’s births, their high school and college graduations and three weddings.

His 35-year career with ALCOA was in sales and marketing groups from coast to coast, before his retirement as Assistant Manager of Distribution Marketing.

As a bonus for all the transfers, Tony’s family saw most of the scenic wonders of the United States, including his favorite - Crater Lake in Oregon. His children had visited 40 states by the time the oldest was sixteen. After Tony had been to all 50 states, he was delighted to receive a congratulatory letter from George H.W. Bush, which hung on his office wall.

Tony’s life-long love of tennis brought him an additional vocation before and after retirement from ALCOA. In 1975, he became involved with “Indoor Tennis for Mt. Lebanon,” a non-profit corporation which began in 1967 and included the first tennis bubbles in southwestern Pennsylvania.

By the time Tony retired from “Indoor” in 2006, the Mt. Lebanon Tennis Center had received two “Outstanding Tennis Center Facility Awards” from the United States Tennis Association. In 1993, Tony received a “This Town Would be Different Without…Award” from the municipality of Mt. Lebanon.

Before he retired from “Indoor,” all related equipment was upgraded and replaced, so the facility would be in great shape for Tony’s successors. In addition, he and Pat attended all four tennis Grand Slams, in Australia, France, England and the U.S.

As Pat said when she and Tony chose to live at Providence Point after his retirement, it was almost mandated for a guy born and brought up in Providence, Rhode Island. 

A Memorial Service at St. Paul's Episcopal Church will be announced.
