He signed a autograph for me when I was 10 years old in Cleveland Ohio. He was a nice guy to do this. I am 70 now and am still a big Yankee fan. Sorry about his death.

Jerry Coleman Longtime voice of the PADRES thank u for the lifetime memories and your service to the MARINES. SEMPER FI. God bless Padres and Dodgers all the way.
January 09, 2014
I send my condolences to the Coleman family. My father, Ignatius Beresford of San Francisco was a a first cousin of Jerry's Dad. We always listened on the radio to Yankees games when Jerry was playing for the Yankees. He brought great joy and pride to our home. Not many people had a relative playing major league baseball and serving our country in the Marines as we were so fortunate to have. My son and I went up after a Padres /Giants game and met Jerry one evening after he finished broadcasting a game at Candlestick Park. It was a pleasure to meet my second cousin, Jerry. He was warm and welcoming to his Giant's fans, San Francisco relatives.
We are so sorry for your loss and know he is up in heaven watching down on all of you fine Colemans.
Sincerely,
Gael Beresford-Raven ( 2nd cousin still living in San Francisco)

We had the unique experience of meeting Mr. Coleman when our son Ryan (now 14) wrote a biography of him in 1st grade.We contacted the Padres just to ask to get it autographed by Jerry; one thing led to another and we had Jerry's personal cell # and he arranged to meet us all and autograph the project. We'll never forget it. What a nice man; such a local treasure.

A childhood hero in the '50's, a good friend in adulthood for more than 50 years. Glad to see you at Padres game this summer. He loved his family. He loved baseball. He will be missed by so many. A true gentleman.
January 06, 2014
I will dearly miss hearing Jerry's Padres voice. He was Mr. Padres to all of his fans. God gave him to us and has now called him home. So sorry for your lost, may you find comfort that he was loved by all who knew him. Rest in Peace Jerry, we will miss you.

I befriended Jerry in 1967 as an18 year old young Marine attending a Yanker-Senators game in Washington, D.C. He kind of took me under his wing, we stayed in contact through the years, and in 2011, I was proud to march alongside the float that carrried him as Grand Marshall for the New York City Veterans Day Parade.

His passing is a shock to say the least. I am just devastated. As the last stanza of the Marine Corps Hymn states, Jerry has now reported for duty and is guarding the streets of Heaven. Rest in peace, my friend, my Marine brother, and a guy I looked up to.
January 06, 2014
To the family, friends, and fans, may the God of comfort, comfort you in the days ahead. Our heartfelt condolences and prayers are with all.

A good, dear, sweet friend for many of my Navy days in San Diego, with heavy heart I say good-bye to Jerry. My deepest thoughts are with Maggie and her daughter.
January 06, 2014
I saw Jerry play many games with the Yanks back in the 50s He was a very good infielder, and helped the Yanks dominate baseball for years. He was a true American hero, and a great Yankee.

RIP

What a great life and what a great blessing that we had with Jerry. Growing up in Connecticut, he was one of our heroes in the 1950's as a great Yankee---little did we know how great a hero he was as a great person. Much sympathy to all his family.
January 06, 2014
My sincere sympathy to the Coleman family for your loss. Mr. Coleman was a true "gentleman." I really admired him as a second baseman when he was with the Yankees! May God Bless you all.

America lost a great man, to give up a baseball career to fight for our country in two wars says it all. There were other greats that did the same thing, Ted Williams to name just one. Jerry is in good company for all he did. Thanks Jerry, you were one hell of a man and you'll be missed. RIP.

I lived in San Diego from 1982-98 so I know that besides being a military hero Jerry was a class act and an all around nice guy. RIP Jerry. "You can hang a star on that baby!"
January 06, 2014
As a Padre fan my heart is broken when I heard the news of a legends passing. Jerry brought a lot of excitement to the Padre broadcasts. He was the main reasons I would bring transistor radio to the game so I could hear his golden tones. His service to our country is so inspiring. I have no doubt he is broadcasting in heaven right now. May our dear savior bring peace and comfort to Jerry's family at this time of sadness. Rest in Peace Jerry, thank you for your service to our country and most of all thank you for your wonderful broadcasts of my Padres. You will not be forgotten ever.
January 06, 2014
Jerry, thank you for your service to your country. I always looked forward to hearing Mr. Coleman's broadcast of the Padres games. His interplay with Ted Leitner. You will be missed! Heaven has a new angel "to hang a star on"! Rest in Peace, Jerry, you've certainly earned it...

Coleman was the voice of the San Diego Padres as legendary as it can get, I sent condolences to the family
January 06, 2014
Yogi said in 1980 when Jerry took mgr job
at San Diego.." He made the wrong mistake" ...did he play in or outfield ?
January 06, 2014
Heartfelt empathy to his wonderful family. I mourn his passing yet consider myself fortunate to have had his voice in my head from the Yankee broadcasts. Red Barber, Mel Allen, Phil Rizzuto, and Jerry Coleman were the finest in their field. Thanks for the memories.
January 06, 2014
Jerry Coleman was truly a remarkable person.

His service as a Marine aviator is ever much appreciated.

His decades in the world of major League baseball always made us the fan happy.

May God bless the Coleman family at this time.
