He was born January 1, 1952 in Ticonderoga, the son of Orin Ernest and Helen Elizabeth (Fish) LaMotte. He grew up in Mineville and following High School served in the United States Army. He was a man of many words. He greeted death with humor and dignity with the help of the loving, caring staff of the ICU-McClure unit. The staff was a great support to his family and friends in carrying out his last wishes and some even taking part in the fun on the last full day of his life. Orin loved animals and had a Gentleman's farm until he could no longer maintain it due to his illness. Orin had several close friends that he enjoyed being around and who helped in caring for his animals during his illness. It broke his heart to have to find new homes for them. He leaves behind a special dog/companion Boomer. Orin was the Vice President of the Mineville Witherbee Rod and Gun Club. Survivors include his wife of 18 years, Kim D. (Dermody) LaMotte of Peru; his only son Michael and partner Michelle of Massena, daughter Michelle and husband Cliff of Moriah, daughter Toni and husband David of East Hartford, Ct.; 9 grandchildren. Tori, Nathan, Madison, Casey Jo, Taylor, Chelsea, Justin, Bailey and Hannah; 7 sisters and brothers. Eddie, Charlie, Danny, Patsy, Barb, Donna and Nancy and their spouses; in-laws Reggie and Pat Dermody, Teri and Glen, Andie and Chris, Gina, Eddie and Jamie; step-brothers and sisters, Paula, Cathy, Sue and Mike; special friends Punker, Pauline and their children, Orin thought of Punker as a son; and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents; and siblings, Bobby, Judy, and stepbrother Harry. As Orin requested there will be no services. He did not want people to mourn his passing. Donations in Orin's memory can be made to The Hope Lodge via The American Cancer Society or The Humane Society. The Hope Lodge gave Orin's family free lodging while he was in the Hospital and The Humane Society because of his love for animals. "What you are now I once was. What I am now you shall be.
