U.S. Veteran

Service Date:

A Graveside Service with military honors will be held on Thursday, November 8, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. at the Southern Maine Veterans Cemetery, 83 Stanley Rd., in Springvale.

Michael Paul Amelotte, 70, passed away unexpectedly on September 15, 2018. He is now at peace with his family in heaven.

Michael was born in Boston, Massachusetts on August 4, 1948, the son of Roland and Adrienne Amelotte.

Michael was a graduate of Bishop McDevitt High School, and continued his education receiving an Associate’s Degree in Business at Montgomery County Community College. He also served three years in the United States Airforce.  Like his father before him, Michael started his career in Sales. He was also well known for being a specialist when it came to being a Disc Jockey for school dances and weddings.  For his second career, he worked as a custodian, serving many school districts across York and Cumberland County. Michael was proud of his 18 years working with the staff and students at Cape Elizabeth School District. He also made many friends with his time at Thomas Memorial Library and with fellow fire fighters at the Cape Elizabeth Fire Station; officially retiring in December 2015.

One of Michael’s enduring qualities was bringing a new neighbor a cup of laundry soap! He was a practical man; this would do better than a plate of chocolate cookies!

Michael is lovingly survived by his partner of 31 years, Marlene Calderwood of Lyman and her family in San Diego, California; and his sister-in-law Caroline Duest and her husband & children of Windham; his three sisters, Suzanne Golden of Lakeland, Florida, Helene Ennis of Wells, and Anne Stuckey of Englewood, Florida; two brothers, Gerry Amelotte of Dover- Foxcroft and Richard Amelotte of York, Pennsylvania, and all of their families. Also, his faithful walking companion Sebastian, a rescue from Harvest Hills in Fryeburg, and Kitty, a rescue from the Animal Welfare Society in Kennebunk, who are now the best of friends.

Michael has now been reunited with his sister, Andree Amelotte who passed from MS, who was lovingly cared for by Mike and his partner Marlene.
