Albert Franklin Coffman, 69, of Roachdale, passed away on Thursday, Feb. 25, 2010 at St. Vincent's Hospice in Indianapolis.
He was born Sept. 18, 1940 in Greencastle, the son of Kenneth and Gladys Walls Coffman.
He married Joyce Ann Romalia at St. Paul's Catholic Church on June 24, 1966 and she survives.
Mr. Coffman, a third generation farmer, devoted his entire life to agriculture. He enjoyed all aspects of farming and took great pride in raising livestock and grain with the help of his son.
He was an avid hunter and auto-racing fan. In his later years, his hobby was raising draft horses and attending horse pulls. He was proud to have raised a champion Belgian draft horse that continues to win awards.
He had a deep respect for the Amish community, which resulted in many fond friendships in southern Indiana.
