Scott C. Coyne, 44
RAYMOND — Scott Christopher Coyne, 44, of Raymond, died Tuesday, Sept. 20, 2016.
Scott was born in Portland on May 29, 1972, the son of John and Vickey Coyne. Scott attended South Portland schools. He and his wife, Stacy Jensen, resided on Little Sebago Lake for the 11 years of their marriage until his recent unexpected death.
He began working for the City of South Portland in 2002. He held various positions, but was most proud of his most recent at the Water Resource Protection division as a mechanic. Scott was naturally mechanically inclined and not only able to problem solve to repair vehicles, but the proper functioning of a vast array of other problem issues. It gave him great pride and pleasure to be able to “fix things” in just his certain and perfect way. If he wasn’t able to repair it to 100% in his mind, then it wasn’t fixed at all.
In his spare time, he was usually on his snowmobile or boat. In the fall, he couldn’t wait for the snow to start to fly so he could get his sled out. He also very much liked going to his in-laws’ camp in Brownville to ride his sled or enjoy an afternoon riding around the logging roads in his truck with his wife and dog.
Then come spring, people would hear him say, “It is almost time to put the dock in and get the boat out!” Just this past July, he was finally able to convince his wife that they should buy a pontoon boat. He wanted one for some time and finally got one. His rationale was that a pontoon boat was needed in order to accommodate the dog’s needs. For the past two months on the boat, he would frequently say, “Now, this is the life.”
He was best known for always helping other people, especially his friends.
He is survived by his wife of 11 years, Stacy Jensen, of Raymond; parents, John and Vickey; sister Kelly; a niece; many other family members, and so many great friends. His family and friends meant a lot to him. Scott also enjoyed many good times with his very close friends, young and old, but always together. He will be sadly missed by all of them.
Visiting hours were held Monday, Sept. 26 at Hobbs Funeral Home, 230 Cottage Road, South Portland. A funeral service followed at the funeral home. Interment was held at Tuesday, Sept. 27 at Brooklawn Memorial Park Cemetery in Portland.
