Jonathan Andrew “Andy” Cole, beloved husband, father, veteran, reporter, and friend, lived his life with joy and passion. Always fondly remembering his childhood in southern Louisiana, Andy and his wife Lynne returned to New Orleans to pursue their dreams together. Andy was an integral member of the public relations team at Deveney Communication.

At every opportunity he and his wife attended live music events and festivals. He was a trusted friend and confident to those who were lucky enough to know him and will be missed by many. He loved music and felt it soothed the soul (an outstanding harmonica player himself). He also loved to brew his own beer and spend time with his friends and family enjoying everything life has to offer.

He leaves behind his beloved wife Lynne Yarborough Cole, his son Jonathan A. Cole, Jr. and his wife Ashley, his daughter Marie J. Cole, his daughter Haley M. Bryant, his brother Joe Cole, his sister Beth Cole, and a host of cousins, friends and colleagues.
