Mascot, TN / Canton, NC – Gerald "Gerry" Cole, Jr., age 57, passed away Sunday, June 6, 2021.

A native of Knoxville, TN, Gerry was born December 15, 1963 to Lynn Cole and Judy Moneymaker Fairbanks.

He was preceded in death by his beloved wife, Susan Adams Cole; and his youngest sister, Annette Kee.

Gerry loved living a simple and quiet life. He was a lighthearted man and loved all things related to superheroes, especially Superman! He was also an avid Star Trek fan and enjoyed playing video games. Above all else, Gerry loved his family especially his late wife, Susan, and his precious daughter, Amelia. We are saddened by the loss of our dear Gerry, but rejoice that he is now reunited together with his wife in their Heavenly home.

A private funeral service will be held by the family.

Crawford / Ray Funeral Home and Cremation Service is honored to be caring for the Cole family.

Condolences from family and friends

I worked with both Gerry and Susan. They were both great people. Their love was so strong. I'll never forget Gerry getting excited about any new Lego video games. In Electronics Gerry, Terry, and Edmond always called each other "brother.". He will be sorely missed.
