Robbie Cole

February 28, 1965 — January 13, 2022


Robert Wayne Cole, Jr. (Robby), 56, passed away of natural causes at his home in Ranger, GA on Thursday, January 13, 2022. Robby was born on February 28, 1965 in Athens, GA to parents, Robert W. Cole, Sr. and Heidi Hambrick Cole. He grew up in Kennesaw, GA with his younger brother, Cletus William Cole. He was an accomplished North Cobb High School athlete in both basketball and golf, and served as President of North Cobbs Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He also won the State Championship in golf during his high school career.
Golf led to an athletic scholarship at the University of Georgia 1983-86.
While at UGA, he played in two SEC Championships and one NCAA Championship, and as a sophomore he won the Atlanta Open. He finished his collegiate golf scholarship at Columbus College where he graduated. After pursuing the playing tour, he joined the Georgia Professional Golfers Association in 1990. He worked as Assistant Pro. at the Dalton Golf and Country Club before attaining the job of Head Golf Pro at Fields Ferry Golf Course in Calhoun, Georgia upon its opening in 1993 until 2007.
Robby was a loving father to his six children, a passionate Georgia football fan, and a devoted Christian. He had a wonderful sense of humor and kept those around him laughing at his stories, wittiness, and warmth.
In his well-worn Bible he had marked a devotional, At Home with Jesus, that said: "Yes, we mournbut we have hopebright hope for tomorrow, when all who trust in Jesus as Savior will move beyond pain and grief forever because we shall be forever with the Lord." He will be deeply missed by all those who knew and loved him.
Robby is survived by his loving wife, Sandy Lovato of Ranger, GA, his children: Robert Wayne Cole, III (Alyssa), Catherine Cole Charles (Jared), Ryan William Cole, Melanie Rae Cole, Jessica Leigh Cole, and Rhett Wardlaw Cole, grandchildren: Silas Cole and Makenna Martin. He is also survived by his brother, Cletus William Cole of Naples, FL, nephews and niece: Austin Cole, Caroline Cole and Daniel Cole. He is preceded in death by his parents, Bobby and Heidi Cole.
A Celebration of Life will be held for Robby Cole on Sunday, January 23 at the 'Original Gym' on the North Cobb High School campus, located at 3400 Old 41 Hwy NW, Kennesaw, Georgia 30144. Family will begin receiving friends at 5:15 pm, followed by a Memorial Service at 6:00 pm.
