So sorry for your loss. Sending prayers, sympathies and condolences to the Cole family and friends. I did not have Robert in class but I always admired him on the baseball diamond. He was a true team leader and tremendous athlete at Wayne High School. May he Rest in Peace and may God Bless you friend.

We are completely heartbroken for you all. There are no words that can end this nightmare, nothing anyone can do to take you off this new and terrible road you are traveling. Our only hope is that Robert was met by his many loving family members who have passed. We like to imagine Robert’s beautiful smile lasting forever in us all and in an afterlife. You are in our hearts and thoughts.
Much love, Janet & Mack

I met Robert at my brothers home about 4 years ago. I was so impressed with his honesty and being so forthcoming in our conversations. I actually posted a picture of my nephew Jared Hill,Robert and Jared’s daughter Jax and the caption read “My new best friend” Robert will always hold a special place in my heart! I will pray for your family! RIP Robert.
