Feb. 12, 1985-Dec. 15, 2017
Cole Anthony Davis passed away unexpectedly on Dec. 15, 2017, at the age of 32.
Cole was born on Feb. 12, 1985 at St. James Hospital in Butte Montana to Don Davis and Rose Konda. As a child, Cole lived in several places throughout the United States and returned to school in Butte during his middle school years. Cole graduated from Butte High School in 2003. While in high school he participated in steer wrestling, team roping and bull riding as part of the Butte High School rodeo team. After graduating Cole went to work with his father at Davis Construction for several years prior to pursuing his professional career at Montana Resources Incorporated in Butte, Montana. Cole always considered Butte Montana to be his home.
After several years of dating, Cole proposed to the love of his life, Brittney Swanson.
The couple was married in Butte, Montana on Aug. 15, 2009. Two years later, on October 14th, 2011, Cole and Brittney were blessed with a daughter, Kadyn Nicole Davis. Kadyn was Daddy's little girl and would frequently accompany him on hunting, fishing, floating, camping and golfing excursions.
Cole's passion was his family and friends. All of the activities he enjoyed were centered around both. It didn't matter what he was doing, whether it be hunting, fishing, floating or golfing, he always had his friends or family by his side. Cole made everything an adventure with his witty humor and quick responses. These outings will continue and now will be filled with stories and memories of the amazing man and wonderful father he was.
Cole is survived by his wife, Brittney Davis; daughter, Kadyn Nicole Davis; father, Don (Debbie) Davis; mother, Rose Konda; sisters, Halee Davis and Michelle (Mike) Lake; nieces, Linnea and Marin Lake; and grandmothers, Lorraine Davis and Judith Johnson. Additionally, he is survived by father-in-law, David Swanson (Amy); mother-in-law, Cheri Villeneuve (Bob); sisters-in-law, Vanessa and Savannah Swanson; family friends, Kayla Matich and Micki Bosch; and grandparents-in-law, Don Swanson and Peggy Villeneuve. Furthermore, he is survived by numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and countless best friends.
Cole was preceded in death by his grandfathers, Wayne Davis Sr. and Edward Konda Jr. Additionally he was preceded by grandmother-in-law, Donna Swanson and grandfather-in-law, Thomas Villeneuve.
The pain of Cole's passing has been felt deeply by many people. Yet he continues to live on through the memories and stories shared between family, coworkers and friends. We ask everyone to continue to share these stories with one another and to find solace within the telling and listening of each story. Each story speaks to the kind of person Cole was.
Friends are asked to call at St. Ann’s Catholic Church on Saturday, Dec. 30, beginning at 9 a.m., and then to join with the family for the Funeral Mass to be celebrated at 10. A reception will immediately follow with the location to be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to a college fund at Southwest Montana Federal Credit Union in Butte and Anaconda for Cole and Brittney's daughter, Kadyn.
Axelson Alternative Cremation is privileged to serve Cole’s family.
