Horace "Pop" Coffin

AGE: 90 • New Castle

Horace L. "Pop" Coffin, age 90, of New Castle, DE, passed away surrounded by his loving wife and 3 daughters, Sunday, February 7, 2016. Pop and his wife were former members of New Castle First Baptist Church. Pop was a member of American Legion Post 28 and a charter member of Moose Lodge 1578 for over 60 years. He was a handyman who could always be found working on a project. Pop enjoyed fishing and both vegetable and flower gardening. Most of all he cherished his wife, whom he referred to as "His Lady", and his children and grandchildren who will hold in their hearts many memories of time spent together - especially at the beach and their summer home in Rehoboth.

Pop is survived by his wife of 71 years, Kathleen Coffin; 3 daughters: Diane Keener, Barbara Megahan (Brian), and Carole Hazewski (Donny); 10 grandchildren; 26 great grandchildren; 5 great great grandchildren; and numerous nephews and nieces. He was preceded in death by his parents, Chester and Elsie Coffin; son, Barry W. Coffin, Sr., twin to Barbara; son-in-law, James Keener; 2 brothers, Paul and Howard Coffin, his identical twin; and sister, Helen Janvier.
