Coleman was married to my first cousin Hazel. I first visited them in Richmond in 1964, and they made me feel welcome in their home.
My husband Billy and I visited them in Mechanicsville at different times and we attend their 50th Wedding Anniversary. We always looked forward to seeing Coleman and Hazel at the Family Reunions. It was always exciting to learn about David , Paul and Thomas; how they were doing , if they had married and had children.
Coleman and Hazel will always remain in our hearts. Coleman will be missed. May God who gives us life, comfort and sustain Hazel and their family.

I first met Coleman when I was employed as a temp for Franklin Federal S&L in july 1965 for a data entry position.
Which resulted in a permanent position October 1965. Coleman was manager of the data processing dept.
My husband and I have known him and Hazel ever since. He wrote programs for the IBM 1400 series computer. He was very percise in all he did. A quiet and very dedicated employee.
After many years, he moved to branch operations.
Franklin Federal, under Rick Wheeler, gave him a memorable retirement party.
I later would see him and Hazel when they came in Innsbrook to do their weekly banking. After I retired I lost touch for a few years but Joan Glover kept me updated.
My sympathy to Hazel and his family. God bless him.
