Please join us in sending our deepest thoughts and sincerest condolences to songstress Keyshia Cole following the passing of her father Leon Cole!
Keyshia took to social media on Tuesday evening to reveal the tragedy to her millions of followers.
The heartbreaking caption reads, “Unfortunately, my father didn’t make it through his complications, due to COVID-19. So here we are.”
“He’s the entire reason my last name is COLE, the only father I knew, he did such a great job here on earth!!!!! He made sure (Even tho he wasn’t my biological father) to keep a stable foundation and roof over all of our heads during our upbringing!!!!”
According to Essence magazine, Keyshia was adopted by Leon and his wife Dr. Yvonne Cole at only two years old.
The caption continues, “He was a very wise man. Taught me and my siblings that knowledge is power!! He was very dedicated to learning and sharing his strong thoughts and opinions on the Bible and religion, and his loving passion for Yahweh Elohim.”
She goes on to to reminisce, “Our many long talks of love and how a man needs to treat a woman may be the reason a man hasn’t been able to hold on to me too long, (LOL) (JK) (But serious). He was the greatest example of love, 51 years of marriage to my mother Yvonne Cole. Seriously the most loving guy I’ve ever known. And he’s gonna be missed so much! I hate that this has happened !!! And that I’ve now lost two beautiful souls within a few months from each other.”
Sadly this tragedy tragedy comes just four short months after the lost of her mother Frankie Lons to a reported drug overdose.
