Harold S. Coffman, DDS 97, passed away on January 23, 2016 at Peppi's House at TMC, in Tucson. Harold came to Tucson with his wife, Wannietta and daughter, Jocelyn in 1943 to find relief from Tuberculosis. After finding his first paying job at J.C. Penny he became one of the first x-ray technicians in Tucson. He then aspired to become a Dentist and went to the UofA and then on to the Univ. of Calif. Dental in San Francisco. Upon graduation with honors he returned to Tucson to establish his practice. He soon branched out to Nogales and not only succeeded in private practice but performed dental procedures pro bono for a great many indigent children in Arizona and Sonora. At retirement he spent many hours volunteering at St. Elizabeth Clinic and St. Alban's Episcopal Church. During his various careers he received many acknowledgements for service and accomplishments. He was preceded in life by his wife, Wannietta, whom he loved and admired greatly. He is survived by his daughter, Jocelyn Clark (Don) and granddaughter, Renee Clark Jordan (Patrick). A Celebration of Life will be held at St. Alban's Episcopal Church, 3738 N. Sabino Canyon at 2:00 p.m. on Friday, February 5, 2016.
