Gene Cole was a champion athlete in the days of my youth. I saw him run an exhibition in 1952 during halftime at the old North School football field track. He easily won a mock race against my classmate and good friend, Charley Lunsford. Through Gene I had the pleasure of talking at great length with Bob Mathias, Herb McKenley, and Harrison Dillard, three more Olympic champions in Helsinki. What a great group of men, all Olympic champions, and all legends in life. They knew Gene well and all praised him with admiration and fondness. Herb McKenley told me that Gene was the man to beat in the 4 X 400 meters if Jamaica was to have a chance at the Gold Medal. Gene ran his leg in world record time and gave the USA a 10 meter lead. McKenley ran the final leg for Jamaica, closed the gap and won the Gold Medal by inches. Not one of them bragged about their personal performances. They were true gentlemen, true champions, one and all.

I'm so sorry to hear. Wonderful person. I enjoyed working with him as a Realtor at Gorsuch Realty. Loved his great sense if humor.
