Roger D. Cole, age 62, of Perrysburg, passed from this life July 22, 2014, at Hospice of Northwest Ohio after a long courageous battle with cancer. Roger was born August 23, 1951, to Betty and Floyd Cole, and was considered a kind hearted and hardworking man by those who knew him. Roger worked at ADM Grain Elevator for 45 years before he began his fight with cancer.
Roger's family, friends and grand dogs were the most important to him. He loved to spend time with them watching NASCAR races and playing guitar.
He was preceded in death by both parents and his brothers, Ronnie, Danny, Charles and David Cole. Left to cherish his memory is his daughter, Connie (Robert) Brown and 2 grandchildren and separated wife of 14 years, Jamie Cole. He will also be dearly missed by his sisters, Cheryl (Edward) Price, Linda (Gary) Rashley and a host of nieces, nephews and friends.
The family would like to thank Hospice of Northwest Ohio for making Roger's journey to our Lord a more peaceful one, and for the love and kindness shown to him and his family. We have truly been blessed by their care and compassion.
