Harlan "Steven" Cole

September 20, 1957 — June 25, 2024

Lone Jack

Steve was born in Hazard , Kentucky and raised in West Carrollton, Ohio. After graduating from West Carrollton High School in 1975, he received a scholarship to attend Georgetown College in Kentucky to play football. He later returned to Ohio and soon after moved to Kansas City, Missouri with little money in his pocket and no job. He worked hard every day to create the life that he dreamed of and could be proud of retiring at the age of 65. He was passionate about his 47 year career in physical fitness. Every aspect of physical fitness and healthy living was ingrained in his personal and work life . He was adventurous and loved the outdoors, flowers, and planting fruits and vegetables. Recently he has been fully engulfed in the process of creating a homestead and living off the land. He spent his last few years, traveling some and spending time with family. He enjoyed hiking mountains in Colorado & Arizona skiing and white water rafting with coworkers. He was selfless, passionate about everything he loved and willing to give the shirt off his back for someone in need. He was passionate about his love for his friends and family, and even more passionate in his pursuit towards the lord . My dad taught me and told me many things over his life time that I will carry with me forever. If he was here, he would be sure to tell you that it doesn’t matter what you have or where you came from, you can create a good life for yourself, to work hard but to not work your life away, to hug your loved ones a little tighter, to forgive those that don’t deserve it and most importantly to follow God with all your heart because the number one goal is to make it to heaven.

Thank you for joining us in honoring and celebrating his life.
