Dave served our country as a US Air Force veteran. He owned and operated Dave Cole Photography for over 50 years. He was a member of Grabill Missionary Church, and a past member of Optimus, Kiwanis, and Gideons International. You would never find Dave without his camera in his pocket ready to snap a photo.

Dave, I always enjoyed spending time with you. I was sorry to see you move from Decatur and missed having our paths cross. You would always have some wise crack or corny joke that would make me glad for your company. Your love of the Lord was an encouragement more than you’ll know. I’ll be looking for you when I reach the other side and we’ll rejoice together. I’ll be praying for your sweet wife. You’ll be sorely missed.
