Cole, Michael Lloyd (Age 59)
Passed away unexpectedly in his favorite place, his garage, on November 3, 2012. Michael was born on July 31, 1953 in Spokane, WA to the late Lloyd and Pearl Cole. He is survived by his loving wife of 40 years, Debbie (Wahl) Cole; three children, Heather Tomsha and her husband Vince of Spokane, Jaime Ingram and her husband Bob of Spokane Valley, Michael P. Cole of Spokane, and his little buddy Roscoe (his little Shih-tzu puppy) of Chattaroy; ten grandchildren; Evan, Laine, Hannah, Jacob and Emma; Aalana, Tyler, Hallee and Brooklyn, and Gunnar Cole; his two sisters, Bonnie Jones and her husband Jim of Colville, and Barbara Cressey and her husband Bill of Spangle. Mike had a real zest for life. He lived his life to the fullest. Mike was very compassionate and was always ready and willing to lend a helping hand to anyone who needed it. Grandpa Mike spent a lot of his time doing fun things with his family; camping, hunting, fishing, skiing, golfing, Harley riding, four wheeling. The list is endless. He had a great love for the outdoors. The moose, deer, turkeys, quail, and many other critters are all going to miss his daily hand feedings, which he loved to do. Mike worked as a diesel mechanic for Greyhound, for 15 years, Northwestern Stage Lines for 3 years, then moved on to STA for 15 more years, where he took a disability retirement in 2008. Mike spent the last 5 years at home with his loving wife and family. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him. Visitation will be on Friday, November 9th from 4:00pm to 8:00pm and Saturday, November 10th from 11:00am to 3:00pm. A Funeral Service will be held on Monday, November 12, 2012 at 2:00 pm, Ball & Dodd Funeral Home, 5100 W. Wellesley, Spokane WA.
