Obituary for Donald Barrey Cole
It is with sincere sadness that we announce the passing of our father and grandfather, Donald Barrey Cole on October 11, 2019, at 83 years of age. Born in 1935 to Ross and Margaret Cole in Walpole Township, Haldimand County. He married the love of his life Dorothy (née Kulka, predeceased); they lived and raised their family in Port Colborne. Don worked at the Port Colborne Post Office for decades until his retirement, first as a letter carrier and Union Steward, and then promoted to Supervisor. As a result of his early retirement and lottery win, Don and Dorothy travelled extensively throughout Canada and the United States. Survived by his daughter Cherylann and son-in-law Joseph Kelly and their children Lynnden (Dustin), Sarah (Richard), and Steven (Riley). His son Donald Barrey Cole Jr. (predeceased) and daughter-in-law Lynn (née Gelz) and their children Ross (Taylor) and Jacob. Also survived by his loving sister Darlene Anderson and brother-in-law Louis of Chippawa. Don also had ten nephews, four nieces, and two great-grandsons Denver and Oliver. Although the family will miss his presence, we are all comforted by his life well lived. In keeping with Donald’s wishes, a private memorial will be held at a later date.
