Alan was born February 11, 1945 in Batavia, NY. He is the son of the late Merle and the late Dorothy Didget Cole. Alan loved to golf and was known for his collection of golf clubs and always getting the latest and greatest. He was a member of Livingston Country Club and Caledonia Country Club. Whether he was seen on the course or out in the community, he will be remembered by his sense of humor, his joke telling, and the fun he brought to those around him. Alan graduated from Batavia High School and worked in the union doing construction until 1985. Following that, he and his wife Patricia got their real estate licenses and began working for Bucci Real Estate. Together, in 2000, they started their own business, A.B. Cole Real Estate, Inc., with their son Alan and it has grown into a very successful company in Geneseo. Alan will be greatly missed by all that knew him but will never be forgotten.
