Once upon a time on a cold January morning in 1999, Cole was born to his mother and father. They were a close, tight knit family that believed in creativty and celebrating diversity. His mother helped Toronto's budding artists, and his father assisted in helping refugees settle into their new home in Canada.
Tragically, the family was not meant to last in such an ideal. During the September 11 attacks in 2001, Cole's father was tragically killed in one of the plane's. Their family mourned, and his mother, Renetta, was forced to raise her son as a single mother. In spite of her husband's death, she refused to allow grief to completely rule them and she ensured Cole grew up to be a child who strove to welcome all.
However, Renetta did miss life with a partner. She knew it and Cole could see it. So when she met her future spouse, Henry Tremaine, when he was twelve Cole was thrilled. A year later, on June 1, 2012 the two married. Renetta earned a new partner, and Cole earned for himself two stepsiblings: Jake and Brian Tremaine.
