LLOYD COFFMAN, 27, SUCCUMBS SATURDAY
Death Results From Long Illness
Funeral Arrangements Not Completed   
      Lloyd Coffman, age 27, died Saturday morning 
at 10 o'clock at his home on the corner of West King 
and Jackson streets.  He had been ill for the past two 
years and in a serious condition for several weeks.
      Pending the arrival of relatives funeral arrange-
ments have not been completed.
      Mr. Coffman was born Aug. 23, 1908, near 
Nineveh the son of Jacob and Stella Tearman 
Coffman.  He received his education in the Nineveh 
and Hopewell schools.  He was a member of 
the Nineveh Christian church.
      On Jan. 11, 1929 he was united in marriage to 
Miss Dorothy Childs, of Franklin, who survives.
      Two children were born to this union both of 
whom preceded their father in death.  Lloyd, Jr., died 
three years ago in March and Jimmie passed away 
two years ago in May.  The death of his little sons 
was a severe blow to Mr. Coffman who was in failing 
health and following the death of Jimmie he gradually 
grew weaker until death resulted.
      Of a pleasant cordial disposition Lloyd Coffman 
numbered his friends by the score in the community.  
He was industrious and continued his duties until failing 
health compelled him to discontinue his work.
      Surviving with the wife are the father and mother
and three brothers, Paul and Mark, of the Hopewell 
community, and Lawrence, of Franklin.  Several nieces 
and nephews and other relatives survive.
