Vladimir Loskoutov

Vladimir Loskoutov, 81, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on October 9, 2023, just one day after his birthday. Vladimir was born in China to Russian parents Constantin and Helen (Gubeiko) Loskoutov, who were seeking refuge from the war in Russia. Vladimir’s family then traveled to Chile in hopes that they would one day be able to emigrate to the United States. Little did he know, the arrival in Chile would be the beginning of so many great moments and experiences in his life, the first being that he met his future wife Monica (Covarrubias) Loskoutov. They were just 16 years old.

While in Chile, Vladimir began to work in a Russian owned jewelry store and first began working on small clocks. He was then able to begin an apprenticeship working on fine watches for 3 years, where he developed his love for and the foundation of his skills as a fine watch repairman. After this he was able to achieve the dream of emigrating to the United States, but at this time was unable to bring Monica with him. He promised that he would bring her to the United States to marry her, and he was a man of his word. He wrote her everyday while they were apart and until she emigrated to the United States, where they married in 1963.

Upon his return, he worked for a small jeweler fixing watches getting paid by the piece, often bringing his work home with him to make more money. He was hired in 1968 by the largest jewelry company in Rhode Island, Tilden and Thurber, and while there he was sent to a Rolex school in New York to continue his studies in fine watch repair. 20 years later,  Vladimir opened his own business, Vladimir Loskoutov’s Fine Watch Repair. His great sense of humor, kindness and skill set were the backbone of his successful business, and he loved his customers and built lasting relationships. He was always a happy man that achieved all that he put his mind to, and he was a determined, hard working, self-made man.

The only thing that made Vladimir happier than being at work was to be at home with his family. He loved to maintain his yard and took pride in the upkeep of his home. He was known for saying he didn’t need to travel because his backyard was his escape.

Besides his wife he is survived by his loving daughters Maria DiNobile, and Trisha Kelly and her husband David. He was the beloved grandfather of Gabriela DiNobile, Natalia Martinez and her husband Victor, and Dawson Kelly. He was the loving great grandfather of Lila Martinez.

Per his requests all his arrangement will be private. Donations in his memory donations can be made to Continuum Hospice- Rhode Island, 1305 Division Rd., Suite 205, West Warwick, RI 02893.
