Joseph “Joe” Coleman, born on June 19, 1949, grew up in Mount Carmel, PA, passed away on Super Bowl Sunday, February 11, 2024. He was the beloved husband of Marcia Coleman for 49 years.

Joe graduated Mount Carmel Area High School before embarking on a journey marked by dedication and service. He spent 3 years with a full-ride scholarship to Villanova University studying mechanical engineering and later served his country in the Army as a Military Police Officer during the Vietnam War.
