Not sure what to say?

Your supportive and fun-loving character will live on because of all the lives you've touched. I love you and I thank you for the cherished memories you've given to all of us.

I love you and will miss you. I am glad to have so many wonderful memories with you and the family over the years.

Of all my many aunts and uncles, Coy was my favorite. With a big heart, a gentle spirit, and a true love of life, he was a great inspiration to me about how one might live well in this world. In his footsteps, I became an engineer. My father Fred and Coy were always close; both enjoyed seeing and engaging in the world. I'm sorry I couldn't attend Coy's memorial service today in Minnesota, but send love and best wishes from Washington, DC.

I always looked forward to seeing Coy at family functions where he might be over the years. What a gentle man and a wonderful listener who always seemed to care. I remember with happiness the memories that Ian shared with me over the years of fudge, motor vehicles, and other fun times. Coy seemed to be such a blessing to so many. Sending love and prayers from North Carolina.

Coy was a friend and integral part of our social activities for over 20 years. We enjoyed his company, interesting conversations, and contributions to outstanding food ( amazing fruitcake and bread pudding). We remember him as a kind and gentle person, and we will miss him lots!

Elizabeth and Rich Larson

I love you Grandfather.
