Al Saucedo “Water Guy Al”
Al Saucedo AKA “Water Guy Al” of Trenton, FL passed away on Wednesday, August 26th. He was 73 years old.
Al serviced the tri-county areas water needs for over 25 years. He was known for his wit and humor always telling corny jokes, playing pranks and being the life of the party. Feeding his family and friends with the best meats and freshest seafood brought him joy. He enjoyed training, playing and driving around town with his best friend, his dog Dorak. Al had a big heart. Talking was his expertise. He was a colorful character with lots of stories to tell, and he loved to tell them. When life gave him lemons, he thought they were limes ready to be picked. Recently, he picked all of the fruit from his wife’s tree and with a big smile and shirt filled with bright green limes, he exclaimed, “Look what I did! I picked all of these limes for you.” Only to be told that they were, in fact, unripen lemons. He always looked for the positives in life. He will be deeply missed.
He is survived by his son, Jimmy Saucedo and wife Kayla; his wife, Michelle Dillon; his daughter, Juliette Dillon and husband Cory; his lifelong friend, Anne-Marie Eubank and family.
A memorial service for Al Saucedo will be held on Saturday, September 5, 2020 beginning at 1:00 p.m. at Watson Funeral Home in Trenton, FL.
Arrangements under the care of Watson Funeral Home, Trenton. For on-line condolences, please visit www.watsonfhtrenton.com.
Rebecca Sudduth entered the Kingdom of Heaven on August 23, 2020 at 2 p.m. at the age of 72. She was born in upstate New York on March 24, 1948 and spent some time in Florida before moving to Georgia to marry and start a family.
In her early years, she worked for Sherwood Medical Corporation before opting to become a full-time housewife and mother. She moved to the Tri-County area in 1986, but spent the last three years at Plantation Oaks Assisted Living in High Springs, FL. She loved the people there, and often said that she never wanted to leave. The team there were an extension of our family. She was so patriotic, and always especially thankful for our police officers, EMS crews and firefighters. She continuously bragged on their selfless service to our community, and of course, their bravery.
She was diagnosed with Covid-19 just one week prior to her death, and her condition deteriorated very rapidly. She passed away on a ventilator in the ICU after suffering multi-organ failure.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Elmer and Violet Woolston. She is survived by her daughters, Wendy (Steve) Swan of Newberry, FL and Teresa Stephenson of Gainesville, FL; grandchildren, Kendra Stephenson of Trenton, FL, Austin Stephenson of North Carolina and Chase Mathis of Boynton Beach, FL; great-granddaughter, Kenlee Stephenson-Gamble of Trenton, FL.
Rebecca was proud of her Christian faith and always said how much she loved the Lord. She was a member of Union Baptist Church in Newberry, although her health had prevented her from attending services.
A private celebration of life will take place in lieu of a funeral, to honor her wishes.
