Donald John Cole


Donald “Don” John Cole
June 26, 1942 – July 24, 2017

It is with deep sorrow that the family of Donald John Cole announce his passing from a brief battle with cancer on Monday, July 24, 2017 at Drayton Valley Hospital and Care Centre surrounded by his loving family, at the age of 75 years. Born in Barrhead, Alberta, he had a love for sports, and the great outdoors where he enjoyed camping, hunting and fishing. He had an amazing singing voice that entertained people along the years, which will surely be missed by many. Don will be deeply missed, and forever remembered by his loving wife of 11 years, Ruth Cole; daughters, Laura (Stacey) Horne and Donna Cole; son, Tim (Katie) Cole; the mother of his children Pam Sutherland (Ian); 4 beautiful grandchildren, Trevor Horne (Emily), Rebekka Horne (Lee), Shallyn Cole and Nicholas Wilson, as well as by numerous extended family, nieces and nephews and many, many friends. Don was predeceased by his parents, John and Alberta Cole. Don’s life will be celebrated at St. Albert United Church, 20 Green Grove Drive, St. Albert, Alberta on Monday, July 31, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. with Reverend Mervin Gallant officiating. In lieu of flowers, Don’s family would appreciate memorial donations be directed to the Drayton Valley Health Services Foundation.

So very sorry to learn of the passing of an old friend with whom I shared many adventures, all of which mostly related to our younger years before the challenges of marriage, family, work and life itself. Rest in peace Big Guy…..
