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.
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.
