Cole Thornton Memorial

It is with great sadness and disbelief to announce the unexpected passing of Cole Thornton at the age of 35.

Cole leaves behind his wife amber and 3 young children. As you can image Amber and the kids are devastated by the loss of their loving husband and father.

Cole was a very special person with a heart as big as the planet earth. He would light up any room he entered with his smile, contagious laughter, and larger than life personality. He loved and cared deeply for everyone around him. Family and friends were the utmost importance to him, they were his everything.

Cole’s wife Amber now faces the task of being the sole provider of the household. Amber is need of any and all support we can give during this time of grieving and carving out a new way of life without Cole.

During this time she will need help with funeral expenses, daily living expenses, mortgage, utilities, and all of the other necessities that come with raising children and being the sole provider of her household. The funds will help out tremendously, while she try’s to work out the intricate details of day to day life without Cole.

This loss is deeply personal and makes us realize that there is no one that can ever make us feel the way he did....as though we were in the presence of greatness. Please keep this family in your prayers, and we thank you for any help you may give.  Even if you are not in a position to help out, please share this GoFundMe page with your friends and family.
