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.
