PORT BYRON — Paul L. Waterman Jr., 77, left in the arms of our Lord at 1:24 a.m., on Nov. 7, 2018, as a result of complications related to Parkinson’s disease.
He was born on March 31, 1941 to the late Paul L. Waterman Sr. and Clara (Wilson) Waterman, in Auburn, N.Y.
He is survived by his current wife of 31 years, Maxine (Wade) Waterman; his first wife, Susan (Olson) Waterman; five sons, Mark (Shelley) Waterman, of Erie, Pa., Charles (Joan) Waterman, of Randolph, N.Y., Gregory (Jennifer) Waterman, of Warren, Tim (Sharon) Wade, of Warren, and Paul L. Waterman III, of Lake City, Fla.; nine granddaughters, Emily, Liz, Chelsie, Abby, Rachel, Renee, and Miranda Waterman, Kaitlyn Wade and Amber (Tyler) Tucker, of Ocala, Fla.; his brother, Phil (Marcia) Waterman, of Red Creek, N.Y.; his sister, Mary (Les) Mack, of Selma, Ala.; as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
In addition to his parents, Paul was preceded in death by his brother, Gary (Betsy), and his second wife, Sandra (Helton) Waterman.
Paul graduated from Port Byron Central School in 1959. He was a proud member of the U.S. Air Force and was honorably discharged in February of 1965.

While in Florida, he raised quarter horses and worked on his friend’s farm in Ocala, Fla. Paul was a staunch Buffalo Bills fan (no matter what their record). His most favorite pastime was any and all family gatherings and visits. He enjoyed country music, playing his guitar, hiking, hunting deer, yard work, and keeping the truck clean and polished. Always willing to lend a helping hand or give a hug, his kindness, caring, and sense of humor will be missed by all who knew him.

WEEDSPORT — Verna “Pat” Jorolemon, 95, passed away at The Finger Lakes Center for Living surrounded by her loving family and caring staff on Wednesday, July 10, 2019.
Pat was born in the town of Brutus on Jan. 22, 1924 and resided most of her life in Weedsport and Jordan. She was the daughter of the late Fred and Blanche Lush Bowden. Pat graduated from Weedsport High School in 1942 and then attended Crouse Irving School of Nursing where she earned her R.N. degree. Shortly after, Pat married her husband, Art, and they went on to celebrate 59 years of marriage. They had three children, Bonnie, Sharon, and Bobby. As a nurse, Pat worked at the Gibson Home in Weedsport. She also worked part-time for the family business, Otis Jorolemon and Sons.
As an adult, Pat was a very active member of the Weedsport First Baptist Church. She served as the Sunday school superintendent and volunteered with the White Cross. Her hobbies included flower gardening, baking, and crafting special gifts for her grandchildren. She and Art spent 20 years “snowbirding” in Florida where they made many lifelong friends. But Pat’s finest accomplishment was spending time with her family, whether it was traveling, playing cards, or making their favorite foods.
Pat was predeceased by her husband, Art; her daughter, Bonnie Guilfoyle; and sister, Marcia Bowden.
Pat is survived by her daughter, Sharon (Michael) Stowell, of Charleston, S.C.; a son, Robert (Teresa) Jorolemon, of Weedsport, and son-in-law, David Guilfoyle, of Endicott. She is also survived by her nine grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren.
The family of Pat Jorolemon wishes to extend a heartfelt thank you to the staff of Finger Lakes Center for Living for the wonderful care she received during her last few years as a resident.
Family and friends are invited to visit from 1 to 3 p.m. and 6 to 8 p.m. on Friday, July 19, at White Chapel Funeral Home, 2719 Erie Drive, Weedsport. A funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. on Saturday, July 20, in the First Baptist Church Weedsport. Burial will follow in Weedsport Rural Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Weedsport Fire Department, 8892 South St., Weedsport, NY 13166 or the First Baptist Church, P.O. Box 501, Weedsport, NY 13166.
