Obituary of Stephen John Cole

Please share a memory of Stephen to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Stephen John Cole, age 59, of Canning, died November 24, 2023, in Halifax. He was born on September 8, 1964, to Nathaniel and Christine Cole in Halifax.

Stephen was proud that his family was from Newfoundland and grew up in parts of Nova Scotia and Ontario. Stephen attended Dalhousie University for a Bachelor of Commerce where he met his wife, Elizabeth (Beck). They were married in 1987 and enjoyed 36 years of a wonderful marriage.

Stephen was an active athlete in his prime and an even more avid sports fan. He was not afraid to chant “Go Leafs Go” or tell you exactly why his preferred sports team was better than yours. An active businessman, Stephen also gave back to his community as much as possible.

Stephen is survived by his wife, Elizabeth; his children, Jillian (Joshua) and John; his brother, Winston (Eva); his sisters-in-law, Michele (David) and Jacqueline; his nieces and nephews, Emma, William (Nala), Jenette, Nathan (Kyra), and Isabella; mother-in-law, Carol (Beck); and his mother, Christine.

Stephen was preceded in death by his father, Nathaniel; his father-in-law, Stuart (Beck); and his brother, David.

Cremation has taken place. A Funeral Service will be held on January 6, 2024 at 2:00 pm in the Emmanuel United Church, 30 Main St., Kingsport, NS B0P 1H0.
