Sorry can't talk to you anymore Dan, but I will say a few words to your family. I came to appreciate Dan during his and my memberships in the Coffee Morning Coffee Club. He brought a delightful and sometimes crusty perspective to conversations that very often became repeat and repeat exchanges. I think he and I had a mutual respect for each other during some of those harangues by members. I will miss him.

Condolences to his family. What a life he had! So many accomplishments! We didn’t know him but know his daughter Kelly and after reading this, I see where Kelly gets her thirst for adventure. I know he will be missed greatly by you all. Sounds like a wonderful man has been gained by heaven.

Bridget- You and your family are in my prayers! I lost my mom 22 years ago and my dad 19 years ago. Not a day goes by that I don’t think of them. I’m so glad that God allowed us the years we had so we could have so many memories! I have been seeing the pictures that you have posted and I can tell your family has MANY great memories! Treasure them! No one will ever be able to take those from you!
Walter (Mickey) Ramer left a message on February 26, 2020:
It is with a heavy heart that I read of Mr. Cote’s passing. My name is Walter Ramer, better know as Mickey, a very poor southern boy who barely made it out of high school from Buies Creek, NC. I was a fairly decent math student. I was in Mr. Cote’s civil engineering curriculum at W. W. Holding Technical Institute in the second year of the program. I cannot over emphasize just what this man meant not only to me but our whole class. He taught so much more than engineering. I personally owe my livelihood to him. My sincere condolences.

We were so sorry to hear about Dan's passing. He was truly a unique person with sometimes a different take from the popular ones adopted by the majority. He could support his opinions with facts not generally known but still pertinent to whatever issue he was addressing. An accomplished raconteur, his witty stories always entertained the large audiences he attracted. His life also involved considerable service to the community through his generous work in several organizations. We will miss him and join his friends in telling his family that he will not be forgotten. Sandra and K. Ball

I know what a loss Dan is to all your family. I see well how much he enjoyed his retirement, as did Bob.

Dangerous Dan I have enjoyed being your friend and fellow Pirate. You helped Joanne raise a beautiful family. Mary and I enjoyed meeting them during our winter stays in Galveston. Rest easy my friend. Love you Joanne. Bill Boivin AKA Bloudy Bill of the Tundra Blind River, On Canada
