Cole Spencer Steidler, 21, of East Fallowfield Township, passed away suddenly on December 31, 2020.

Cole was born in West Chester, PA on February 7, 1999 to Kelly (Dunlap) Steidler and Jeffrey D. Steidler.

He is survived by his parents and sisters Kelcy, Lilly and Chloe Steidler; his grandmother Lorraine (Cain) Steidler, and many loving relatives of the Dunlap and Steidler families. He was predeceased by his maternal grandparents, Suzanne and H. Spencer Dunlap, and his paternal grandfather Frank A. Steidler Jr.

Cole attended Pope John Paul II Regional Catholic Elementary School and graduated from Coatesville Area Senior High School. He was member of St. Joseph’s church in Coatesville where he served as an altar boy as a child. He played football beginning at the age of 6 and enjoyed the competition and teamwork of the game, developing lifelong friends. He acquired a work ethic and drive that would embody his spirit into early adulthood.

Cole attended West Chester University, studying finance and economics. He worked at Wegmans in Downingtown, and most recently TD Bank in Exton to pursue working in the financial industry. Cole possessed natural leadership qualities, cherishing work and professional relationships.

Fly fishing local streams became a passion for Cole. He was skilled at tying flies, and a graceful and natural fly rod caster who found serenity in flowing waters. Cole shared that love for fly fishing by volunteering for Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, teaching the art to Veterans at the Coatesville VA Medical Center. In 2016 he proudly but humbly received an award for his dedication and support as a volunteer.

Cole valued relationships with people by keeping a close and loyal group of friends that he shared many adventures with. He traveled to places such as New York City, Washington DC, mountains, oceans, and everything in between. He spent time living in Los Angeles, CA enjoying the nearby natural beauty and bustling city life. Cole was a loyal and true friend to those lucky enough to spend time with him, and he considered himself blessed by these friendships.

Cole loved music of all genres and was often found experimenting with his mixing and recording equipment. Music was a large part of his life and he found joy in finding and sharing new artists and sounds with others.

Cole is loved by his family and friends. He was a gifted and special person who touched the lives of those around him. Cole’s loving and protective presence is greatly missed but especially by his sisters, who benefitted from his guidance and advice.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Monday, January 11, 2021 at 12:00 noon at St. Joseph Roman Catholic Church, 404 Charles Street, Coatesville PA 19320 followed by interment at the St. Stanislaus Cemetery, Coatesville, PA. Family and friends are also invited to attend visitation at the Church from 11:00 AM to the time of the service. 

To protect those at-risk, please wear a mask and practice social distancing at the Church.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations in Cole’s name be made to Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, Inc., Post Office Box 695 LaPlata, MD 20646 or at https://projecthealingwater.org/donate/

Arrangements have been entrusted to the Wilde Funeral Home of Parkesburg. Online Condolences can be posted at www.wildefuneralhome.com

Kelly, Jeff and Family,

I truly am sorry for your loss.  I cried when I heard of your loss. Speaking as a sibling who lost a brother at a very young age. There are no words that describe the pain and sorrow felt.  No words to help heal.  Only time. Cherish the memories and try to function the best you can. If I can be of any assistance or help. I am here for you.

Here is my favorite picture of Cole💙

I met cole sometime in sophomore year of high school. I started working at wegmans with him in my junior year. We got really close after this and became good friends at school as well. Cole truly made work a fun time. He always liked to flaunt his higher up "management" ranking to me hahah. Cole was an amazing friend. I would see him at friend gatherings everytime I came home from college and we would pick back up so easily. He was one of the sweetest and most caring people I have known. He always had a smile on his face:) I will miss him so much. We all loved him and cared about him a ton. I pray every night that he has found his peace. I am so sorry that you had to lose him so young. You raised an amazing son that truly lit up any room he was in. ❤️

Undoubtedly, a reflection on how he was raised. We enjoyed our times with him and believe he is in a better place, in the peace and comfort of the Lord's presence. The entire Steidler and Dunlap family are in our thoughts and prayers. Know you all are able to call on us at any time if we can provide any level of comfort or assistance. 

With much respect and love,

I'm one of those veterans that Cole interacted with at Coatesville VAMC. There are no words that seem adequate at a time like this...

Just know a small part of this big world was made better by the loving young man you raised. I' m so very sorry for your loss.

The last time I saw Cole was in the spring. I stopped him, talked to him a little and at the end of our conversation I said I love you Cole.he just smiled with that beautiful smile and said I love you too.Im so sorry for your loss, it breaks my heart. He is your guardian angel now. We will all see that handsome young man again. Ed Clark's mom

Kelly, you and your family are in my prayers!  I have such fond memories of Cole who was such a kind and caring big brother to the girls.  He always came in to dance class with a smile on his face to assit with getting Kelsey and the twins ready for their class.  At Sharon's funeral we had such a nice conversation and his hug meant the world to me.  My heart just breaks for you and the family.  Miss Sharon must have needed an angel by her side in heaven which she now does.  Hugs and prayers!

I can't express how sorry I am to hear about this amazing young man. He was the sweetest kid and I loved him. Sending prayers to Jeff and Kelly and Kelsey and Chloe and Lily. I love you and wish I could've been there 💕
