|Francis provided his Living Tribute for the Coach Bob Cole Tribute on 9/12/2017. Below his LM to Coach Cole is his father's obituary, which was by Francis Alleman, Jr. and posted with his permission.
Coach Cole was more than a well-respected track and field coach. He was a mentor who believed in me, instilled confidence in his athletes to successfully compete and he taught us more about life than collegiate competition.
Coach Cole had a sincere interest in team members getting a quality education and he prepared athletes for life beyond graduation.
Coach was very proud of all the athletes he coached and he wanted all of us to succeed and become the best we could be after our college experience.
