Jeffrey G. Cole, 60, of Irwin, died Sunday, June 04, 2023. He was born October 19, 1962, in Wilkinsburg, a son of Robert G. and Joanne M. Schake Cole of North Huntingdon. Jeff was a member of Immaculate Conception Church. Prior to working as a Facility Manager Work Leader for Duquesne University, he was employed by Union Local #9 as a bricklayer. A few of Jeff’s favorite things were; all things Batman, his love for all sports especially his kids, grandchildren and nieces and nephews; The Good, the Bad and the Ugly, his love and knowledge of music, and anything sweet. A few of our favorite “Jeff moments” are, his high-pitched cackle, Jeffisms, Edith Bunker impressions, his animated storytelling, loyalty to work, family and friends. In Jeff’s world, he was already 61. We all know you took the “Stairway to Heaven”.
