Remembering Steve Cole
It is with deep sadness that the members of the North Coast Fossil Club mourn the passing of longtime member Steve Cole. Steve passed away on Thursday, March 5, 2020 at the age of 74.
Steve was the beloved husband of Donna for 42 years. For Steve, family was most important. He deeply loved all the members of his family.
Members of the North Coast Fossil Club will fondly remember Steve from our January Banquets and July Picnics. At the Picnics in July, Steve always volunteered to help with cooking the food.
Even though Steve might not have had the same keen interest and enthusiasm for looking for fossils as did his wife Donna, Steve was very much interested in fossil geology and greatly enjoyed the fossils that Donna brought home. Steve was always
1945 - 2020
supportive of Donna's fossil collecting trips and associated events.
Steve was a most interesting person to converse with on many topics. Steve had a deep love and knowledge of the history of trains and steam engines.
Steve owned and operated his own advertising company that focused mainly on motor sports and automotive after-market products.
Steve's great love for motor sports mostly centered upon auto related topics such as Formula 1 Racing, NASCAR, and NHRA Drag Racing.
Steve's Celebration of Life for gathering and sharing memories has been postponed to a future date. Steve's brother is in England. And because international flights have been cancelled, Steve's brother is unable at this time to travel to the USA.
Once the travel restrictions are lifted, you will find information about Steve's Celebration of Life on this website.
Also, in lieu of flowers, Donna suggests a donation to an organization that was very dear to Steve. Kitten Krazy, Inc. is a cat shelter and adoption center from which Steve and Donna adopted their last 4 cats. The address for Kitten Krazy, Inc. is 930 Lafayette Road, Unit A Medina, OH 44256. Kitten Krazy's phone number is 330-591-4408.
