Cota, Jose "Joe"
Jose Jorge "Joe" Cota, 56, a longtime resident of Nyack, NY passed away peacefully, early Monday morning at home surrounded by loved ones after a long battle with cancer. He was born in Mazatlan, Mexico on October 31, 1956 to Mary M. Cota and Fernando G. Cota, both deceased.
Joe moved to Nyack in 1981 and fell so in love with its charm he raised his family there. He worked at Havermale's where he was a hardware manager who was more than happy to help everyone and anyone for 15 years. During his time in Nyack he was greatly involved in the community. He moved on to work at Homestead Hardware with the Mollicone family in Stony Point. He became a beloved staple of the community for 16 years. Patrons and clients alike will always remember to "listen to the Mexican".
His family meant so much to him. He is survived by his three children; Michelle, Christina and Joseph, as well as his son-in-law, Luis; his five sisters Freda, Christina, Josie, Genevieve and Magdalena and his granddaughter, Maya. He was beloved by many.
Special thanks to all of the staff at United Hospice of Rockland for their special care and keeping him comfortable and in good spirits during his journey.
