We are deeply saddened to report, on Wednesday Jan 5, 2022, Mike passed away, suddenly, at his home in Trail, British Columbia.
The son of David Cole and Carol Ann Kyle (predeceased) and stepson to Douglas Barney, Mike was raised in Sudbury Ontario from a young age. He attended Wembley Public School and Lockerby Composite Secondary School and graduated from Cambrian College's X-Ray Technician program.
After graduation, he settled in Trail B.C. and began his career at Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital, where he will be missed by his friends and colleagues.
Mike was an avid outdoorsman and loved spending time in the mountains, skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling throughout the rugged back country. Summers were spent sailing, kiteboarding, motorcycling and mountain biking.
In recent years, his interest in music developed into yet another hobby, becoming a popular DJ around Trail.
Mike travelled extensively around the world, pursuing all his hobbies. He will be sadly missed by Doug and the rest of the Barney Family, the Cole family, and all of friends, everywhere. Memorial Services will scheduled shortly at the Alternative Funeral and Cremation Services, in Trail B.C.
