CUBA - Philip W. Cole, of 9154 Health Camp Road, passed away Thursday (April 8, 2021) at his home, surrounded by his loving family.

Phil was born May 3, 1933, in Ceres, and was a son of Philip H. and Eloise Garcia Cole. On Dec. 13, 1952, in Olean, he married his wife of 57 years, Nancy A. Shott, who predeceased him Jan. 7, 2009.

Phil served in the U.S. Army from April 8, 1953 to April 7, 1955.

Following his retirement, he drove a limousine for a period of time, as well as shuffling cars between dealerships and the auto auction for Team Chevy for a number of years.

Phil was an avid reader and enjoyed watching crime shows. He also enjoyed being at home, but he truly loved spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren.

Phil is survived by four children, Linda L. (Thomas) Vennard of Auburndale, Fla., Philip H. (Cindy) Cole of Hinsdale, Kathryn M. Cole of Winchester, Va. and Elaiza (Mark) Neu of Cuba; nine grandchildren, Thomas, Tammi, Kimberly, James, Michael, Kristina, Claudia, Patrick and Lauren; 18 grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
