Linden Nathanial Cole
Linden Nathanial Cole, age 40, of Hamilton, MO, passed away on Jan. 9, 2020, in Kansas City, KS, at the KU Medical Center. Linden was born on Dec. 28, 1979, in Chillicothe, to Larry and Margaret (Peggy) Kopp Cole.
Linden met life with a fighting spirit and unending optimism. He loved his family and found great joy in his sons and young grandson, Hayden, as well as his nieces and nephews, who he always greeted with a big hello and a welcoming smile. Our hearts and home will miss his presence and humble example of how to face insurmountable physical challenges with tenacity and grace. We will find comfort in knowing he is now at rest, reunited with his brother Sam. Linden had a true love of music and enjoyed attending concerts. He never said goodbye, rather he left you with a see you later.
Linden was preceded in death by his brother, Samuel and grandparents, Keith and Rita Cole and Harold and Mary Kopp.
