Jacob Garrett Coffman, 24, passed away Monday, December 12, 2016, in his home. He was born September 30, 1992, in Anniston, son of Kenneth R. Coffman Jr. and Lisa Grubbs Ligon. Mr. Coffman attended Cleburne County High School and was a 2011 graduate of Bethlehem-Center High School. He always enjoyed making people laugh. Garrett enjoyed spending time with his friends and loved ones and helping them in any way he could. His love of music, playing video games and his free spirit are all things for which he will be remembered. His infectious smile and vibrant eyes brought an energy that no one will forget. He was also mechanically inclined and able to fix or repair most anything. He particularly enjoyed working on cars, hunting and fishing. Surviving are his father, Kenneth R. Coffman Jr. (Maria), of Fredericktown, Pa.; his mother, Lisa Grubbs Ligon, of Heflin; seven siblings, Trey Coffman, of Oakmont, Pa., Emily Coffman of Fredericktown, Pa., Riley Ligon and River Ligon, both of Delta, Jon Ovial of Fredericktown, Pa., Michael Ovial of Plum Borough, Pa. and Elyse Ovial, of Beallsville, Pa.; his maternal grandmother, Lawdean Grubbs, of Heflin; grandmother Mary Corazzi of Fredericktown, Pa. and a large extended family. Deceased are his paternal grandparents, Kenneth and Virginia Coffman, and his maternal grandfather, Henry M. Grubbs Jr. A memorial service to celebrate his life will be held Thursday, December 29, 2016, at Liberty Hill Congregational Methodist Church, 77 Co Rd 142 Heflin, AL 36264. The family will receive guests beginning at 6 p.m. The memorial service will begin at 7 p.m. We encourage you to bring copies of photos and your fondest memories of Garrett to share in a memory book.
