Biddeford – Guy H. Cote, 88, of Biddeford, Maine died on August 31, 2019. His final days were spent surrounded by family and friends at St. Andre Health Care.

He was born in Jay, Maine on March 3, 1931, a son of Frank and Dezilda (Fortier) Cote. Guy graduated from St. Louis High School, class of 1949 in the top of his class. He married the love of his life, Annette on April 7, 1956. They moved to Brunswick, Maine, where Guy started his 34 year career with the U.S. Postal Service.  Guy was an active member of the St. John the Baptist Church in Brunswick, both as a choir member and eucharistic minister.  He and Annette also ran the best french fry booth at the annual St. John bazaar.  In 2000, he moved back to Biddeford to be close family and friends while caring for Annette, who had been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s.

Guy volunteered at Southern Maine Medical Center for ten years. He was recently a resident at Wardwell Senior Living Center in Saco, until his health declined. His interests included staying up on the latest technology, watching sports, traveling, creating elaborate miniature Christmas village layouts, and socializing on a daily basis with his dear friends at Dunkin’ and McDonalds.  He had a great love of family, always cherishing the times spent with them. He will be sadly missed by many.

He was predeceased by his wife, Annette, son, Normand and by three brothers, Rene, Paul and Leo Cote.  Guy is survived by children Guy Cote Jr. and his wife Jane, Theresa Cote, Mike Cote, and Joyce Marshall.
