Mitchell Allen Marcotte, 19, died Friday, Oct. 5, 2012, in his sleep, at his home in Boca Raton, Fla. He was born Feb. 21, 1993 in Charlotte, N.C. to Ivan Allen Marcotte and Donna Gutman Marcotte.
Mitchell was a member of the Journey Church in Boca Raton, Fla. Mitchell had a full and special life bursting with laughter, jokes and dreams. He lived in Charlotte and relocated to Boca Raton in January. Mitchell loved all of his family and friends very much. There was not a day that went by that he did not put a smile on someone’s face. He had an incredible sense of humor that broke down all barriers, and Mitchell never knew a stranger.
On top of his humor, his dreams were always big and his hugs were bigger. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends, fishing, hunting, going on adventures, joking, laughing, dreaming, singing, playing the piano and being in nature.
Mitchell is survived by his parents, Ivan and Donna Marcotte; his brother, Bennett Marcotte; his sister, Anson Marcotte; his paternal grandmother, Norma Bell Marcotte; his maternal grandparents, Walter and Marguerite Gutman; the love of his life, Suzelle Sharp; aunts, uncles, cousins and many special friends.
A service to celebrate his life will be held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 13 at Caldwell Memorial Presbyterian Church, with Reverend John Cleghorn officiating. The family will receive friends directly after the celebration on the lawn outside the church. The family asks that you wear bright colors to Mitchell’s celebration and that you bring a special or funny memory to share.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to in Mitchell’s memory to Trout Unlimited, 1300 North 17th St., Suite 500, Arlington, Va. 22209,
