Dr. Bobby Coleman Obituary

On Friday, March 29, 2024, beloved pastor Dr. Bobby Edward Coleman passed away at the age of 89.

Known to many across the CSRA, Coleman modeled his years of ministry after the apostle Paul’s message in Acts 20:24: “Life is worth nothing unless I use it for doing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about God’s mighty kindness and love.”

One of twelve children, he was born August 21, 1934, to Madison T. Coleman and Leila P. Coleman, in Lynchburg, South Carolina. Coleman is survived by his devoted wife of 68 years, Ruby Frye Coleman; daughters, Jeanette Stokely (Ricky) and Victoria Irby (Anthony); two sisters; eight grandchildren; and 17 great-grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his mother and father; several brothers and sisters; and his son, Madison Edward Coleman (Cathy). 

Coleman served in the United States Navy during the Korean War, and he worked at R.C. Motor Line for 18 years. He attended seminary at Columbia Bible College, and completed his double Doctorate of Theology and Divinity degrees from International Bible Institute in Florida. Coleman served in ministry for over 50 years in the Congregational Holiness Denomination as the pastor of Cornerstone Fellowship Congregational Holiness Church, Denomination Superintendent, and Conference Secretary.
