John Francis Cota, 68, passed away on Tuesday, March 10, 2020 at his home in Jeffersonville. He was born in Barton on May 23, 1951, son of the late Russell F. and Doris C. (Buskey) Cota.

John grew up in the Northeast Kingdom and moved to Lamoille County with Audrey in 1972. He began his career at New England Telephone, where he worked for 25 years. He held several positions, but his favorite was working in the mail room.
John liked spending time outside. He would take care of his gardens and mow the lawn on his John Deere tractor. He liked sitting on the front porch shooting the breeze with family and friends.
He was a fan of the open road and loved cruising the back roads in his truck or four-wheeler. He would sometimes be gone for hours, so you had to be prepared for that if joining him for a ride or waiting for him to bring back something from the trip.
John was a pizza connoisseur, choosing to eat it whenever possible. His favorite season was hunting season and he loved spending time at his hunting camp with his family.

He is survived by his loving wife of 48years, Audrey (Perron) Cota, a daughter Shelly Sacramone and husband Dan of Franklin, MA, his son Ryan Cota and wife Sarah of Belvidere, a brother Jeffrey Cota and wife Jean of Barton, his sister Jeanne Cota and husband Wayne of South Burlington, his mother-in-law Dorothy Perron of Glover, brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law; Brian Perron and wife Julie, Claire Michaud and husband Denis, David Perron and wife Martha, Elaine Gallup and Stuart Gaboriault, Linda Deth and husband Paul, five grandchildrenSophia, Calvin, Ryley, Renny, and Seeley; many nieces, nephews and cousins.

He was also predeceased by his brother, James Cota and father in law, Norman Perron.

Private services were held on March 13th, 2020 per John’s wishes. A Celebration of Life will be held on May 31st from 11:00-3:00 at John and Audrey’s house. Memorial contributions in John’s memory may be made to Lamoille Area Cancer Network, 198 Farr Avenue, Morrisville, VT 05661 or Lamoille Home Health and Hospice, 54 Farr Avenue, Morrisville, VT 05661.
