Edward Allen Cole Jr., known to most as “Eddie” and to some as “Crazy C,” passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, Aug. 5, 2021. He was 42 years old.
Eddie was born in Indianapolis on Oct. 11, 1978. He was the son of Ed Cole Sr. and H. Patricia McNees. He spent his formative years in the Warsaw area and attended Warsaw Community High School. He went on to spend many years working in various construction positions and was a dedicated employee and a hard worker.
More personally, Eddie was an independent and strong-willed person. He loved time spent with his family, especially his children. He also enjoyed fishing and vacationing though his health limited both in the past several years. He had overcome many personal and health challenges, but never allowed life’s obstacles to get him down.
Those who survive with memories to cherish include his fiancee, Jeni Riley; daughter Lexi; son Blake; daughter Alaina; father Ed Sr. (and partner Linda); mother Patty (and partner John); brother Doug (and wife Pheba); and two sisters, Tonya (and wife Liz) and Tina. Also surviving are three stepbrothers, Austin, DJ and Johnny; a stepsister, Camryn; seven nephews; six nieces; three great-nieces; and a great-nephew in addition to a large extended family.
He was preceded in passing by his grandparents; and several aunts, uncles and cousins.
Friends may gather at Titus Funeral Home, 2000 E. Sheridan St., Warsaw, on Tuesday, Aug. 10, from 5 to 7 p.m. On Wednesday, Aug. 11, at noon, Chaplain Randall Myers of Kosciusko Home Care and Hospice will officiate Eddie’s funeral with burial in Oakwood Cemetery.
