Victor Elmer Cole

June 18, 1936 - October 12, 2016


Born in Quesnel, Vic came to Powell River in 1943 with his father Clarence, mother Sarah, brother Bill and sister Patricia. He died peacefully at home in his sleep.

Vic played sports with gusto, coached his son’s teams and enjoyed watching sports on television. He loved music, especially classical and opera, and listened to music to relax. An avid outdoors man, he loved biking, fishing, hiking, photography, climbing and skiing. Vic felt at home in the mountains. As an Air Cadet he obtained his private pilots’ licence. He loved flying, which lead him to build his Osprey 2 airplane. Vic was well known for his lifelike wood carvings of people, birds and animals and for his wood turnings. He also ventured into carving rock. He was also known for his quick wit, his keen sense of humour, his risqué jokes, his animated story telling and his love of a great laugh.

Vic is survived by his wife Shirley, daughter Corrie (Rob), son Scott (Michelle), grandson Mason, granddaughter Emily and a large extended family and many good friends.

From our family, heartfelt thanks for their caring and help go to Dr. David May and Dr. Blake Hoffert, as well as the palliative care nurses, physiotherapy, occupational therapists and the home care staff.

A celebration of Vic’s life will be held Saturday, November 5, from 1-4 pm at Myrtle Point Golf Club. Please bring your favourite memorabilia and stories about Vic to share with everyone. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to Powell River Community Health Centre-Palliative Care Program, third floor, Powell River General Hospital, 5000 Joyce Avenue, Powell River BC, 604.485.3310.
