Zachary C. Cowett

AUBURN – Zachary C. Cowett, 32, of Cowett Road, Hartford, was tragically taken from us on Saturday March 11, 2023 from injuries sustained in an automobile accident.

Zach was born in Lewiston on June 26, 1990, a son of Cameron and Zoe (Jackson) Cowett. He was educated in local schools and graduated from Buckfield High School class of 2008. He was currently employed at Lapage Bakery as a delivery driver. He enjoyed his job and especially his coworkers. He was known for being a hard worker and his great sense of humor.

Zach married his one and true love, the former Selina Dumais on Sept. 23, 2017 in Hebron. He was a devoted husband and father, he worked several hours a week but he took request for supper from Austin every day and would make sure he cooked him whatever he wanted, he never went to bed until his children were in bed and all chores around the house were done. He was a proud father and cherished every minute he spent with his two sons.

Zach was a friend to many and enjoyed spending time with them and all his family, he also loved being outdoors, walking through the woods hunting or being on his new boat fishing with his wife and son, Austin, and cooking in his smoker. He had a great sense of humor and had a comment for any situation, and if he didn’t make a comment you could bet he had a facial expression for it.

Zach is survived by his wife of five years, Selina Cowett, and their two sons, Austin and Milo, all of Hartford; his parents Zoe Cowett of Auburn and Cameron Cowette of Hartford and his companion Lisha Tremblay of Turner; two sisters, Dyanna Jackson of Poland and Ashley Cowett of Sumner; his paternal grandmother, Sandra Cowett of Hartford, maternal grandparents Raymond and Dianna Jackson of Auburn; his in-laws Michael and Lucie Dumais of Monmouth; brother-in-law, Jacob Dumais of Pittston, a sister-in-law, Celeste Goulet and husband Michael of Wales; and several aunts uncles and cousins.

He was predeceased by his paternal grandfather, Bernard Cowett.
