John N. Coleman (73) of Woodstock Georgia passed away on Thursday, March 30, 2023 surrounded by his family at Emory Hospital.
It was John’s wishes that he does not have a traditional funeral service, but rather a local celebration of life in Georgia. The time and date is yet to be determined.
John Coleman was born on January 4th, 1950 to Charles Mason Coleman and Jean Adair Coleman in Charleston, West Virginia.
After he graduated from Largo High School, he went to trade school for plumbing and started his own successful Plumbing Business.
John was an avid hunter and a member of a hunting club full of his best friends. His passion for fishing went as far as casting his favorite net at the Belleair Causeway, catching a school of mullet and smoking them for his family and friends. He loved feeding hummingbirds, putting out suet for woodpeckers, and even taming the neighborhood squirrels with peanuts.
John had a heart of gold and always thought of others before himself. He would find every moment he had just to put a smile on someones face. He was also a well- known storyteller, and known to have a funny story for just about everything. He never took life too seriously, and would remind people to not “shivaget”.
Survivors include: Siblings, Martha A. Fenner, Kim M. Coleman, Jil A. Delaney (David) and Charles H. Coleman (Jerri); Children, Jacob C. Coleman (Amanda), Jeffrey N. Coleman, Joanie E. Coleman (Noel), Amy L. Aydell (Josh), and Tiffany R. Hughes (Matt);11 grandchildren, 2 great grandchildren; as well as nieces, nephews, cousins and so many friends.
