Not sure what to say?

It is so hard to imagine that you aren't going to be in our lives in the future. Always the man to have at a charity auction. Always kind and generous. We shared so many laughs and fun times. We were hoping for many more. Love from our family to yours, Susan, Doug, Chris, Rebecca Bamber and John Crawford

Sending love and strength today to Alan's beautiful wife Sue and their children, his mum and all his family and friends that loved him.
I hope you are surrounded by love.

Alan, you have been a beacon of hope, humour, life, love, generosity, and goodness to me, my family, and friends. Your presence in any company was a delight! Words struggle to capture your powerful, caring presence. Rest in peace, my friend. Thank you for your fine and encouraging example to us all!

As Alan's Cub and Scout leader from many years ago, I was saddened to read of his passing. He was a fine young boy, always a pleasure to have around. To Bruce and Rowan in particular, my condolences. Brian (Skip)

To the Cole Family, We have such treasured memories of happy family times together as Cameron and Emily were going to school with James and Katie-Rose. Know that we all hold Alan in high regard as a most generous and kind person, one of genuine intent and who could light up anyone's day. We offer our condolences at this sad time and as it passes hold dear to those wonderful moments. With Love Jim and Linda Fraser and Familyxxx.

Words can’t really express the immense respect that I have for Alan, his commitment to and appreciation for longstanding business relationships, that became friendships, where he and the team at Sparkle always delivered above and beyond.

His personal willingness and ability to provide solutions and support.

His incredible generosity, sense of fun and humour, his positivity, encouragement and wisdom - inspiring...

Rest In Peace Alan Cole, thank you for all...
