Thomas E Cole 10/24/58 - 1/12/21


Tom passed away on Tuesday January 12th at Hershey Med due to complications of diabetes, at age 62. Predeceased by his parents George & Dorothy Cole and his older brother Joesph Cole. He is survived by his loving wife of 31 years, Sharon (Kitchen) Cole and their two fur babies, Monk & Rupa, his brother Ronald Cole, Sr. and wife Christine, Sister Doreen Rullo, brother Gary Cole and wife Corinne. He is also survived by his nephew and best friend Nathaniel Cole and his long time best friend John Geleta


Born in Harrisburg, PA, at a young age he was diagnosed with a brain tumor. He surprised everyone and made a full recovery. He went on to have numerous jobs over the years, most importantly as a full time care giver for his wife. Tom really enjoyed Star Trek, electronics, biking, swimming, kayaking, and flea markets. Most of all Tom enjoyed making people laugh. He was always sharing jokes and funny photos he found online. He always included everyone and would make you feel like he’s known you for years. A highlight of Tom’s life was his annual trip to the beach each summer with his wife, sister and nephew.


Tom will always be remembered by his sense of humor and caring personality.
