WILMINGTON — Julius C. “Cole” Rassin, 22, entered into life immortal Saturday, Feb. 24, 2018.

Cole was born Oct. 12, 1995, in Wilmington. Julius Cole was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, and namesake, Julius Rassin of Milford Ohio; and maternal grandparents, Dale and Belle Parsons of Franklin, Va.

Julius Cole is survived by his parents, Steve Rassin and Mary Belle Jones, and brother, Creed Rassin, all of Wilmington. He also leaves behind his stepparents, Mark Jones and Christina McMillan of Wilmington; paternal grandmother, Frances Rassin of Milford, Ohio; numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends; and dear friends, Clarence and Melinda Hales of Wilmington.

Cole was a lover of life, music, nature and people. He was an amazing performer who wrote and performed his original songs in downtown Wilmington and graced the stage and screen as an actor as well.

A free spirit with a captivating voice, he used his music to tell others what he felt the world needed to hear, enchanting those who heard him. While performing downtown, it was not unusual to see him stop performing a song and go over to someone he thought needed help.

Cole’s heart and soul were always seeing the beauty in everyone and everything. Cole would want us to all rejoice and celebrate, not be saddened by his passing. His music was such a joy for others and an inspiration to him; he would want us all to listen to his music, or any music. He would want us to recognize how music helped him to be such a shining light of love and compassion to so many.

A memorial service will be conducted 10:30 a.m., Saturday, March 17, at Wilmington Funeral Chapel.

In lieu of flowers, the family is in the process of establishing a music fund in his name.  Share memorials by visiting tmcfunding.
