Rolland R. Cote Jr., 66, of Broad Brook, CT, devoted husband of 46 years to Suzanne (Kiejko) Cote, passed from this life on Tuesday, September 10, 2013 with his loving family by his side. Rolland was born in Hartford, CT on November 26, 1946, the son of Rolland R. Cote and the late Joan (Soucie) Cote. He was a graduate of Manchester High School, Class of 1964, and was employed at ABA Tool and Die in Manchester for 27 years. In 1995, he co-founded and established R&R Tool and Die, LLC, where he continued to work until his passing. He was a longtime member of the Broad Brook Angling Club and in 1975 served as Grand Knight of the Knights of Columbus, Campbell Council #573 in Manchester. Rolland's delight was the simple joy of life. He looked forward to summer weekends spent with his sweetheart Suzie at the family cottage on Lake Alexander in Dayville, CT where he could cast a line in the hope of netting the "big one", and enjoy family and friends. He will be fondly remembered co-hosting with Suzie, the Cote Fourth of July Celebration on the Lake, an annual event anticipated by all the Cote family and their friends. He loved to garden and finally succeeded this year to outwit the deer from stealing the fruits of his labor. Precious memories celebrating their yearly wedding anniversary in Gloucester, MA will be treasured. Long walks with Suzie and the "boys", his beloved labs Rudy and Cooper, were simple daily pleasures. In addition to his wife, the love of his life, he bids farewell to 3 sons, Rolland Cote III and his wife Esther of Enfield, Mark Cote and his wife Adrianne of Ellington, Michael Cote and his wife Vonda of Amston, and 3 adored grandchildren, Dustin, Lindsay and Cassondra. He also leaves his father's wife, Georgette and 2 sisters, Darlena Pehr and Sandra Ciesones, and many dear friends, customers and co-workers. Relatives and friends may call on Friday, September 13th from 4 to 8 p.m. at Samsel & Carmon Funeral Home, 419 Buckland Rd., South Windsor. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, September 14th beginning at 9 a.m. from the funeral home with a Mass of Christian Burial, to be celebrated at 10 a.m., at St. Catherine's Church, 4 Windsorville Rd., Broad Brook. Burial will follow in St. Catherine's Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Rolland's name may be made to St. Catherine's stained glass window fund. Rolland's family would like to express their deepest gratitude to the caring and compassionate staff at the St. Francis Cardiac Intensive Care Unit.
