David Dai Cote
1991 ∼ 2020
David Dai Cote died unexpectedly on Friday, May 22, 2020 at the much-too-young age of 28. He was a 2009 graduate of Bridgewater-Raynham Regional High School, where he enjoyed singing and performing with the Raynwater Players and was a member of the Gay-Straight Alliance, TJ2, YESS, Principals Leadership Team and Art Club. Ms. Woods’ visual arts classes were his favorites and he was voted Class Artist by his senior class. Ms. Woods inspired him to pursue a degree at Mass College of Art where David graduated with a BFA in Animation, having always been a big fan of manga and anime. For his final project at MassArt, he created a beautiful black and white animation that included the transformation of a single line into fantastical moving creatures. David loved to read novels that included fantasy and magic, and as a young teen, was first in line to buy the new releases in the Harry Potter series.
Most recently David had been working for IHI, a Hospital and Health Care network. A self-proclaimed “gamer”, he was naturally inclined towards the remote work and quarantining in which we have all taken part for the last 10 or so weeks. He and his sister Katrina had been spending time playing Smite together during the wee hours of the Covid crisis, where they posed as gods and battled enemies together.
David is loved and will be missed forever by his large extended family, including his sisters, mother, father, grandmothers, and countless cousins, aunts, uncles and friends.
