Obituary for John R. Rote III

PITTSFIELD-John R. Rote III, 70, died on January 3, 2019, in Bangor after a period of failing health.

He was born on September 30, 1948, in Plainfield, NJ, the son of the late John R. Rote II and Virginia Puleston Rote. He received his bachelor’s degree from Park College and was employed in sales for most of his life, working for Lee Jeans, Jantzen Sportswear and finally retiring from the Kennebec Journal / Morning Sentinel.

John loved the outdoors and led an active lifestyle. He enjoyed living in Maine. A log home secluded in the woods would be his peaceful habitat. He loved to cook and garden and was a perfectionist in everything he did. He was a great athlete. His many interests included kayaking, skiing, fishing, and golf.

He is survived by his son, John R. Rote IV and his wife Valerie of Concord, NH; granddaughter Hannah Rote; sisters, Marjorie Becker and her husband Gary of Canaan, CT and JoAnne Waer of Southport, North Carolina; niece, Sarah Becker; and nephew Jesse Becker.

A private family burial will be held in the spring at the Village Cemetery, Peltoma Avenue, Pittsfield.
