Mike Cole was a good man and loved by many family and friends. He doted on his 9 year old daughter, Darsey and her step-sister, Riley, spending most of his free time as a father and step-father to these lights of his heart.Friends remember Mike as a generous and tender-hearted, compassionate person, who was always available to lend a helping hand.He is remembered for his penetrating blue eyes, amazing smile and booming laugh, that could warm a room and heart when he was present.When Mike was not at work as the President and CEO of GTI, he could be found at the gym challenging whomever he could to a friendly game of racquetball or participating in cycle classes and volunteering his time at local hospitals with Mocha, his service dog.Mike found peace outside, and was frequently found taking camping trips with his beloved Darsey and friends, enjoying the outdoors and building bon fires in the cool night air.Mike had a soft heart towards his animals, and was often welcoming stray and unwanted animals into his home.Recently Mike found new love and will tragically be missed by those who knew and loved him.
