Alexander Paul Watson, 32, property manager

October 23, 2004

Alexander Paul Watson, who helped manage Bolton Hill rental properties, died of an apparent heart attack Saturday at his Eutaw Place home. He was 32.

Born in Baltimore and raised in Guilford and Bolton Hill, he attended Grace and St. Peter's School in Mount Vernon. A boy soprano, he sang in the choir of the Grace and St. Peter's Episcopal Church and achieved the rank of senior chorister in the Royal School of Church Music program there.

He graduated in 1990 from Loyola High School, where he was the lacrosse team manager, and played lacrosse at St. Mary's College in Southern Maryland while earning a bachelor's degree in economics.

"Alex was the kind of person who would drop everything to help a friend," said his brother, Anthony J. Watson of Cambridge, Mass. "He also had an offbeat sense of humor. He was a fun person to be around."

He became a distributor for tobacco products for the Miami Cigar Co. during the 1990s. He called at Fells Point bars, downtown tobacco shops and Georgetown restaurants. He was also a W.R. Wrigley field manager.

For the past several years he was a property manager for about a dozen residential buildings owned by his family in Bolton Hill and Washington Village.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. today in the Chapel of Our Lady of Monserrat at Loyola's Blakefield campus, 620 Chestnut Ave., Towson.

Besides his brother, survivors include his mother, Micheleen M. McNeill of Baltimore.
