The Cole family sadly announces the sudden passing of their father, Gary Edwin Cole, at the age of 78. Dad passed away at Kingston General Hospital surrounded by his family after suffering a stroke. He is survived by his loving wife, Gay, and children Jeff (Cinzia), Joanne (Kevin Armstrong), Greg (Dianne) and Chris (Jen). Gary is predeceased by his beloved sister, Gayle Beaudrie (survived by Ed). Dad was a caring Grandpa and will be greatly missed by Travis, Taylor (Wes), Nicole, Chloe, Ty and Olivia. Gary spent a lot of his time taking care of family friends who needed help the most. He was a natural and patient caregiver to Gay over the last few years. This past summer, Dad spent time riding his new Harley, enjoying his “last hurrah”. A private Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. Arrangements entrusted to CATARAQUI CEMETERY AND FUNERAL SERVICES.
