Obituary from Helena's Independent Record 03/26/2006:
Carl Christopher Cotton, age 37, of Helena, died March 18, 2006, as a result of injuries incurred in an airplane crash near Butte.
He was born Oct. 10, 1968, in Tacoma, Wash., to Charlie and Karin (Krutish) Cotton. Carl grew up in Issaquah, Wash., and married Deborah Cleveland on July 17, 1992, in Bellevue, Wash.
He became a pilot for Ameriflight in 2001. Carl and Deborah moved to Helena in 2002 for his job and stayed because he fell in love with the Helena area. Carl's love for flying started as a young boy, and he earned his private pilot license at the age of 17. His passion was also his family and children.
Carl is survived by his wife, Deborah J. Cotton and children, Andrew Cotton, Lauren and Madeline Cotton of Helena; brother, Curt Cotton of Issaquah and father, Charles Cotton of Graham, Wash.
A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m., Thursday, March 30, at the Covenant United Methodist Church, 2330 Broadway, with Rev. Dave Anderson officiating.
