Alan Cote, who served terms as a president and secretary-treasurer for the Puget Sound Ports Council, passed away April 5 at the age of 61.

Cote had been the national president of the Inlandboatman’s Union of the Pacific (IBU) from 2005 until 2017. In addition, he served on the international executive board for the IBU’s parent union, the International Longshore and Warehouse Union, between 2006 and 2018.

PMC Secretary-Treasurer Vince O’Halloran recalled Cote as “a great representative and friend to all of the Puget Sound’s maritime unions.”
