Truman Coleman

November 5, 1946 — November 5, 2017

Truman Lee Papo Coleman, age 71, of Mound City, Kansas passed away on Sunday, November 5, 2017 at his home, surrounded by his family. He was born on November 5, 1946 at Fort Scott, Kansas the son of Howard and Lavon Clayton Coleman. He married Judy Burkhead on August 6, 1965. She preceded him in death on February 28, 2014. He worked as a telephone lineman before retirement. Truman enjoyed hunting, fishing, gardening, spending time at Sugar Valley Lake, and going to his kids and grandkids school activities. However, these interests in themselves, do not describe the man that Truman Coleman was. He was a man who was generous in sharing his talents and treasures not only with his family, but friends and members of the community as well. He raised enough garden to share with many people. He helped numerous kids and friends get their bows tuned just right. No one can count the number of times he has been around Sugar Valley Lake pulling skiers and kids on tubes. He supported not only his family, but other young people in sporting quests and other school activities. Besides Judy, he was preceded in death by his parents. He is survived by a son, Steve Coleman and Tisha, a daughter Patricia McGrew and Chuck, two brothers, Garyl Coleman and Patty, and Harold Dean Coleman, six grandchildren: Kayla McGrew, Austin Coleman and Lily, Cole McGrew, Chad Coleman, Alyssa Coleman and Kiera McGrew, and one great granddaughter, Blaike. Funeral service will be held at 10 am Thursday, November 9, 2017 at the Mound City First Baptist Church. Burial will be in the Mapleton Cemetery. Visitation will be held from 5 to 7 pm Wednesday at the Schneider Funeral Home and Crematory, Mound City Chapel.
