Maynard Lee Cole

Maynard Lee Cole, 79, Excelsior Springs, went to his rest on Thursday, November 5, 2020.

Maynard was born June 23, 1941 to Marvin and Alta (Bergman) Cole. He married Dora Foster on May 4, 1963. He was a great son, brother, husband, father, uncle, grandfather, great-grandfather….. and you name it! Maynard worked for Hallmark Cards in the heating, cooling, and maintenance department. He loved to work on things and was always up to the challenge, as he was a terrific handyman. Maynard loved to watch old westerns in his favorite easy chair. He also loved to watch the KC Chiefs, especially the last two years. He really enjoyed spending time, especially special occasions with his whole family.

Maynard was preceded in death by his parents, Marvin and Alta (Bergman) Cole, and brother, Melvin Cole.

Survivors include his wife, Dora (Foster) Cole; his children, Belinda (Cole) and Thomas Carroll, Bryan and Angela (Rose) Cole, and Jennifer (Cole) and Danny Minch; grandchildren, Taylor Cole, Meg Rogers, Shannon Cole, Jaclyn Zenni and Brenden Zenni; great grandchildren, Kellen Zenni and Cam Zenni; sister, Marie (Cole) Steelwagon and Al; sister-in-law, Kathy Cole; niece, Gretchen (Cole) and Bill Jones; and nephew, Todd and Lisa Cole; and great niece and nephew, Paige and Eli.

Maynard left this world, and all our little worlds, in a better place because of him. But, of course, he will never leave our hearts.

Services for Maynard will be held at a later date.

Arrangements in care of Bross & Spidle Funeral Home, Excelsior Springs.

Our Sincere Condolences

My first boss at Hallmark. I have never forgotten him and his kindness towards some young men just starting out in their adult life! May God grant his loving family peace that passes all understanding!
