Colin “Cole” Bradley Hall was born in Burnaby, BC on June 7th, 1957. If you liked him then he liked you, and if you didn’t like him — he would still give you a chance. His family, though, always owned his heart and even if you were far away, you were still close in his thoughts.
One of his most sacred beliefs was that anything worth doing was worth doing right, which is why so many people are enjoying custom doors and windows in their homes that he built with his own two hands. He was intelligent and believed in fairness and justice and wasn’t afraid to fight for it.
He was a quick-handed boxer who could make you hurt, but also a wise-cracker who could make you smile. Besides boxing and joking, one of his greatest passions was being behind the wheel of a fast car or up the side of a mountain with a 4×4.
Cole died September 3rd, 2016 in Merritt, BC. It was his final fight. A fight with diabetes that could not be won. Cole is survived by his wife, Margaret, his two sons, Clint and Ben, his daughter Samm, his siblings Kim Whipp, Clay Hall and Kyle Hall, his rambunctious cat Boogers and by anyone who closes his doors and windows at night to protect themselves from the cold outdoors.
A memorial for Cole was held at 6225 Thompson Place, Peachland, BC on September 17, 2016.
