Obituary for John D. Cole
John D. Cole, age 79, beloved husband of Grace (Bonsant) Cole died peacefully Tuesday at their home surrounded by his family.

John was born in Troy, NY, April 7, 1942, a son of the late Westburn and Vera (Jones) Cole. He was raised in Troy before moving to Billerica in 1968 and later retired to their vacation home in Maine before recently moving back to Billerica. John proudly served in the U.S. Air Force.

He was employed as an Electrical Engineer at Control Data for many years and later worked at Raytheon, working on radar installations globally, before his retirement. John was an expert in his field, but was also a jack-of-all-trades; there was not a problem he could not solve. John loved the outdoors and was happiest when gardening as well as fly fishing and hunting at his camp in Canada. He was a doting husband who cared deeply about his family and friends. He will be truly missed.

Besides his wife, John is survived by his daughter, Michelle Offner and her husband Ken of Winchester; his son, David Cole and his wife Anne of Billerica; his sister, Charlotte Foster of Averill Park, NY and his grandchildren, Mitch, Rachel, James, Cameron and Kenny, as well and many nieces and nephews.

John’s funeral arrangements will be private and held at the convenience of the family. Memorial contributions may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association,
