Obituary for Gabriel "Gabe" Rocco Coconate

Gabriel Rocco Coconate, age 71, of Minocqua, died unexpectedly at deer camp on Saturday, Nov 12. Gabe was born in Milwaukee, the son of Rocco and Louise (nee Porcaro) Coconate. He married Mary Radoszewski in 1963. His trade of being an electrician brought him “up north” to raise his family and start Lakeland Electrical Contractors. In the early 80’s he opened and ran the Landmark Bar in downtown Minocqua and retired in 1995. His love of sausage making prompted him to start Gabe’s Sausage Kitchen in Woodruff.. He enjoyed the outdoors- hunting, fishing, mushroom picking, cooking/eating Italian food and spending time at Saxon Harbor in his RV. He escaped to Florida in the cold winter months. He was an active member of the Minocqua Lions Club.

Granddaughters, Angela,Melanie, Sevi, Riley, Macy and Mia. His special friend Bobi Massari and his four legged buddy Co. Aunts, Uncles, Nieces, Nephews, and many, many friends too numerous to mention
