Blaise Anthony Cotogno, 60, of Little York, passed away on Sunday June 4, 2017 under the loving care of his wife Pamela after a courageous battle with cancer.
Blaise was born June 8, 1956 in Brooklyn, a son of the late Dominick and Josephine Lospin Cotogno, Jr.
He married the former Pamela Grimsley on January 14, 1989 and move to Little York shortly thereafter. Blaise retired, after 20 years, from Cooper Tools and was then able to pursue his true passion as a part-time cook.
He had also previously worked as a longshoreman and truck driver.
He was a communicant of St Margaret's Church, Homer.
Blaise’s favorite place to be was in his kitchen entertaining friends and family and nobody ever left his table hungry. He loved his New York Mets and New York Rangers.
Surviving is his loving wife Pamela J. Cotogno; daughter, Ashley A. Proulx; son, Anthony J. Cotogno and two grandchildren, Dominic A. Cotogno and Avary A. Proulx. Also surviving is his brother, Donald F. (Sharron) Cotogno of Homer, Alaska; which Blaise would often remark to people as an interesting fact that he and his brother both lived in communities named Homer.
