Alvie “Coot” Deese


Alvie “Coot” Deese, loving husband, father, and friend to many, began his new life in Heaven on February 8, 2022, at the age of 94.

Coot was born on January 8, 1928 in Cottonwood, AL and is survived by his faithful and loving wife of 73 years, Nettie Deese; a daughter, Tina Deese of Apopka, FL; and son, Tim Deese of Marianna, FL. Additional surviving family members include two grandchildren, great grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews. He was a Marine veteran of the Korean War. Subsequently, he worked at Sears as an appliance repairman for many years and later started his own appliance repair service, from home. He was well loved and respected by all his customers and friends. Coot loved fishing, hunting, and the many friends he and Nettie made while camping. He was also an avid Auburn fan! He was a faithful member of the First Baptist Church of Marianna, and loved all of his friends in the Barabbas Sunday School Class. To say he will be missed greatly by his family and friends is an understatement!

Graveside services for Coot will be 2 p.m. Monday, February 14, 2022 at Pinecrest Memorial Gardens with Reverends Vince Smith and Michael Petty officiating. Marianna Chapel Funeral Home will be directing.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Emerald Coast Hospice or a charity of choice.
