As a life-long resident of Rockingham, Mr. Coleman earned the love and respect of all who knew him.  As the owner of Robert’s Automotive for over 50 years, everyone knew whom to look to for automotive help and advice, and he always looked forward to visiting with a friend who might drop by the station.  Rockingham has lost a pillar of the community and he will be greatly missed.

A memorial service to celebrate the life of Mr. Coleman will be conducted at 2 p.m. Saturday, March 28 at First Presbyterian Church, 904 Fayetteville Road in Rockingham with Rev. Dwight H. Williams officiating. The family will have visitation to see friends following the service in the fellowship hall.
