It is with a heavy heart that we are writing to let you know that retired PCBS professor, Dr. David Cole, passed away on Monday, September 7th. Dr. Cole’s beloved wife Edie shared with us that he suffered from a variety of health issues and was hospitalized on their 58th wedding anniversary. Edie was unable to visit him for 20 days and he passed away on the day she was finally able to be with him. She and hospital staff members believe he was waiting to say goodbye.

Dr. Cole was professor emeritus of finance at The Ohio State University and was on the PCBS faculty for 50 years. He retired from teaching at PCBS after the 2019 session.

We thought it would be nice to put together a collection of quotes and sentiments from students about how Dr. Cole has impacted their lives and present it to his wife Edie.

Warm regards,

The PCBS Family
