Michael Sean McCarthy Cole

Michael Sean McCarthy was born to Sandy (Monte) and Denis McCarthy May 29, 1965 and was raised by Sandy Cole in Petaluma, California.  Michael Cole died suddenly June 11, leaving behind his mother Sandy, sisters Lisa (Jon) Wambold, and Kathy (Joe) Van Cleave; his three children Brittany Greene, Jordan Cole, and Sarah Cole; granddaughters Sterling and Luna Cole; nieces Dr. Brianna and Ashley Wambold; nephew Ryan (Alexandra) Van Cleave; and his beloved Uncle Charlie (Dee Dee) Monte.  He also leaves behind those woven in as family: Carolyn Colclough (“Grandma Carolyn”), Chelsea Siegel, Angela Cole, and Alexandra Dutzi, whose friends and families will all miss him.  Mike made friends wherever he went and made a positive difference in the lives of everyone he met.  

Mike graduated from Casa Grande High School, where he excelled at soccer.  As a father he was a coach for soccer, T-ball, and YMCA basketball.  Mike was in his 32nd year at Marin-Sonoma Mosquito Abatement District, where he indulged his amiability meeting new people and exploring the rural reaches of Marin and Sonoma County.  He loved the outdoors, be it gardening, camping, off-roading, hunting, gold-panning, or mountain biking.  They all pale in comparison to his love of fishing, which anyone can attest to.  He enjoyed live music and was a loyal fan and friend of local bands Whiskey Family Band and Jimbo Scott.  A phenomenal cook, he showed his love by feeding friends and family whenever possible. Above all, he relished the time spent with his twin grand babies.  

His kind and caring heart, amazing sense of humor, and beautiful smile and laugh will be missed, but he will live on in the hearts of those who were blessed to know him.  

The memorial service will be held Saturday, July 1, 2023 at 1:00- Daniels Chapel of the Roses, 1225 Sonoma Avenue, Santa Rosa.
