Mr. Coley never met a stranger and loved everyone he met and never turned down a stranger who needed help. He was a loving husband and father and the most animated man who could always bring a smile to your face. He was loved by everyone he met because of his enthusiasm for life.
Thomas never turned down an opportunity to have a family dinner with his wife, kids and daughter-in-law.
He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Pauline Coley; brother and his wife, Jerome and Karen Coley; and brother, Alvis Coley.
He is survived by his wife, Charlotte Marie Coley, son; Michael S. (Kristen) Coley; daughter, Carla Marie Coley; and one future granddaughter; brothers, Eugene (Theresa) Coley, Billy (Shirley) Coley, Donald (Donna) Coley, Robert (Brenda) Coley, Terry (Lawanda) Coley; sisters, Pauline (Dean) Strange, Sue (Glenn) Green; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Covered dishes and plants will be accepted, and/or donations may be made to the immediate family and/or Ten Island Baptist Church for general use of the church facilities.
