Structure Maintainer Uraul Watts, who worked the overnights, died of the Coronavirus on April 16, 2020. Brother Watts had two years on the job. He was only 46 years old and had emigrated to the United States from Antigua. He leaves behind his wife Michelle, two young children, his son Chidike who lives in Canada and his daughter Nkechi who resides here in the States, his Mother Daphne and sister Yurihanna Vyphuis in Antigua. Structure Division Chair Richard Rocco said that Brother Watts's passing “is truly heartbreaking for our Structure members and especially for his young family. I am very grateful that the union’s leadership was able to secure the $500,000 death benefit for the families of these Brothers and Sisters who are lost to the virus. May he Rest in Peace.”
