Obituary for Jack Nelson Coggins

Jack is survived by his sister Sandra Reeves and her husband, Mike Reeves of Burleson, Texas, nieces Sheila Bentley, Lisa Burch and Roni Will as well as nephews Robbie Hoffman and Nick Hoffman (and 13 great nieces and nephews). He is preceded in death by his parents Joe and Juanita Coggins, of Corsicana, Texas and sister Sue Whitlock Hoffman of Fort Worth, Texas.
A graveside service will be held on Saturday February 3, 2018 at 1:00 pm at Hamilton-Beeman Cemetery. Jack will be laid to rest next to his sister, mother and father under the Bradford Pear tree that he planted.
