Adam E. Cole, 44, of Philo, passed away unexpectedly, Friday December 2, 2022, at Genesis Healthcare Emergency Department. He was born January 7, 1978, in Zanesville to Becky Koehler Cole and the late Larry Cole. Adam was a friend to all with a heart of gold and was sure to light up the room on any appearance with his infectious grin. He was a former employee of multiple companies where he served on various drilling and boring projects and enjoyed working as a meat cutter during layoffs. One of his most passionate positions held was being a house monitor for a short time at the New Hope Creation Center, in Malta, to help and oversee others also facing life challenges. Adam loved the outdoors and anything to do with it, from long drives in the fall on a back road, to gardening, fishing, and fiddling with his knives.
