Paul R. 'C-Rider' Marcotte, 62

GILFORD — Paul R. "C-Rider" Marcotte, 62, of 23 Liscomb Circle, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, February 25, 2015 at Lakes Region General Hospital.

Paul left the area when he enlisted to serve his country in the US Air Force. While performing his duty he was stationed in Germany and in Alaska. He attained the rank of Sergeant in the Military Police before coming home in 1973.

Paul worked for quite a while at Malibu Iron Works in Laconia. When he later became "disabled", he could still fix just about anything people brought to him that was broken. To say that Paul enjoyed motorcycle riding is a major understatement. He went to Sturgis 21 times and knew every back road and byway here in New Hampshire. Paul liked to ice fish in the winter, even when it was just sitting in the bob house swapping stories. He was one of the best bonfire builders to be found and always welcomed another traveler.

He is survived by his wife, Jan (McGranahan) Marcotte of Gilford, his daughter Rene' Hoover, grandson Tyler and granddaughter Jocelyn, all of Rutherfordton, N.C., his brothers Michael Marcotte of Meredith and Gary Marcotte of Gilford, his nephew Justin Marcotte of Vermont, cousins Toni Marcotte and his wife Tina of Manchester and Robert Marcotte and his wife Cindy of Laconia, his uncle Marcel Marcotte of Manchester and many other extended family members. He was predeceased by his parents.

George B. Hickey, Jr., 64

SANBORNTON — George B. Hickey, Jr., 64, of Hunkins Pond Road passed away suddenly at his home on Wednesday, February 25, 2015.
George was born in Cambridge, Mass. on February 3, 1951 the son of George B. and Evelyn (Crotty) Hickey, Sr. He resided in East Boston, Mass. before moving to Sanbornton forty years ago.
George was a self-employed architect who practiced in N.H. for many years.

He designed and built the home in Sanbornton that he raised his family in and which would become a 'hobby' of his up until the time of his passing.
