Obituary of Cole Edward Michel


One of God’s delicate angels, Cole Edward Michel, 20, went to heaven on April 28, 2018. He was born April 10, 1998 in Moses Lake where he resided all his life. He attended Moses Lake Schools, most recently at Moses Lake High School.

From Cole’s earliest moments, his severe medical conditions and numerous disabilities has been a continuing inspiration to us all and our family's commitment to do all we can to help individuals with disabilities live full and productive lives. Cole had the most wonderful smile and loved laughing, he touched the lives of so many people.

Cole leaves his parents, Chad Michel and Wendy Willard Michel; grandparents, Gary Michel Sr, Cynthia Michel and Tommie Bright; great grandparents, Jim Michel and Della Dykes; uncles, Brad Michel and Gary Michel Jr; aunts, Lisa Walker and Theresa Bickel; numerous other uncles, aunts, cousins, relatives and friends.

Cole is now rejoicing in heaven with his grandfather, Daniel Willard; great grandparents, Lauren Dykes, Mathersa Michel, Ross and Alta Willard, and Everett and Frances Sollis; and cousin, Ian Dykes.

Cole, also, leaves his foster mother and caregiver, Dena Logg and her family, and his private nurse, Theresa Griffith. We would like to give a huge Thank You to both Dena and Theresa for giving Cole their loving care and compassion, providing a happy living environment and taking such great care of him. Words cannot express our appreciation; may God bless you both for the work you do every day.
