Cole has been a store manager at A to Z Rental in Mankato for almost 20 years and will be greatly missed by his work family.
Everyone who knows Cole could expect a funny joke or sports fact. He was always fascinated by the weather and loved watching the storms come through the river valley and was a great person to share a bonfire with while stargazing. Cole always looked out for his friends and family as well as being the most sincere and caring son, brother, cousin, uncle, nephew, and friend the world has seen. He will be greatly missed by everyone.
