Cole was a fifth-grader at the Wapakoneta Middle School, and had attended Cridersville Elementary School. He was a member of the Cridersville Cub Scouts. He enjoyed just being a boy, playing baseball, climbing trees, fishing, camping, riding four-wheelers, and his pet dogs.
A private graveside service will be in the Buckland Cemetery, with the Rev. Tom Shobe officiating.
Friends may call from 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m., Wednesday at the Bayliff & Eley Funeral Home in Wapakoneta.
