Paul A. Washburn


— PLATTSBURGH — Paul A. Washburn, 44, of Plattsburgh, died on Tuesday, March 12, 2013. He was born in Rochester, N.Y. on March 3, 1969, the son of James and Gloria (Woods) Washburn. He was currently employed at Bombardier.

Paul enjoyed nothing more than spending a day on the golf course, playing pool, Sunday football or just hanging out with family and friends. He loved to play fetch with his beloved dog, Brutus, for which he is now with. Life gave him many challenges, but one he never ran from was to help out a friend or even a stranger if he could. He will surely be missed.

Paul is survived by his two daughters, Rosalyn Welch and Kaylene Washburn; one granddaughter, Vanessa Nevach-Lynn; his parents, James Washburn Sr. and Gloria and George Potts; a sister and husband, Deborah and Terrance Lincourt; a brother and wife, James and Chantal Washburn Jr.; a half-brother, Benjamin West; three step-brothers and families, Timothy and Cynthia Potts, Paul and Danielle Potts, William and Crystal Potts; two nephews, Joshua Helm and Christopher Washburn; a niece, Racheal Lincourt; several uncles, aunts, cousins and friends. He was predeceased by a brother, Kenneth Washburn.

Calling hours will be held from 4 to 5 p.m. on Monday, March 18, at the Brown Funeral Home, 29 Broad St. in Plattsburgh. Funeral services will follow at 5 p.m. in the funeral home chapel. Burial will be in Riverside Cemetery at a later date. Arrangements are entrusted to the Brown Funeral Home, 29 Broad Street, Plattsburgh, New York 12901 (518) 561-3980.
