Dennis C. Cole

North Greenbush, New York



Dennis C. Cole, 63, of Hampton Place Blvd. passed away suddenly on Monday May 2, 2022.  He was born on Nov. 9, 1958 in Troy and was the beloved son of the late William M. and Frances Bruno Cole, Sr.  Dennis was educated in the Troy school system.  He was working for the Stewart’s Corp in at the time of his death.  Dennis had previously worked for Albany Management as a painter for a number of years. 


He is the soul mate and companion of Sherry Flansburg; devoted brother of Colleen Christian, William M. (Mary Alice) Cole, Jr. and Mary Ann (Philip) Beals; also survived by his beloved nephews Tyler and Gavin (Anna) Beals and was anticipating the arrival of his Great Nephew this coming September. 


When Dennis was not working, he loved being at home enjoying the Love of life, Sherry, and his cat, Precious.  His love and care of creatures great and small was one of his graces, as he had a special connection with them.  Music was also a big part of his life.  A devote fan of Tom Petty and AC/DC, along with countless other good time Rock and Roll bands. His laughter was infectious and he loved to make others laugh along with him.  Known for his “McGriever” skills, Dennis could fix anything and would be the first to say, “I can fix that”.  He will no doubt keep cheering his football team on from the heavens – Go KC!! 


He will be dearly missed by his family and friends. 

“Death leaves a heartache no one can heal

Love leaves a memory no one can steal”
