Robert L. Gette of Tequesta, Fla., a former Westport resident, died June 23, 2013, at his residence.  He was 97.

Born in Hasbrouck Heights, N.J., he had been a resident of the area since 1984. While living in Westport, he worked in Manhattan as a head hunter for Haleys & Associates. He was a co-founder of the Westport Little League and enthusiastically coached the team for which his son played.

An avid golfer, he was a former member of the Jupiter Hills Country Club and the Tequesta Country Club.

Survivors include one son, Robert L. Gette, Jr. (wife Terry), of Salem, N.Y., and one great-grandson, Owen Robert Gette, of Charlotte, N.C. He was preceded in death by his wife of 67 years, Barbara Smith Gette, his son, Carter Smith Gette, and his grandson, Robert C. Gette (wife Jennifer).

At his request, there will be no formal services.

In lieu of planned expressions of sympathy, the family has suggested donations be made to Hospice of Palm Beach County (Gerstenberg Center), 5300 East Ave., West Palm Beach, FL 33407, in memory of Robert L. Gette.
