Tribute

Roger Coleman, Sr., 77, passed away on Saturday, November 25, 2023, in Fredericksburg, Virginia.

Roger Coleman, Sr., son of the late Jessie and Howard Coleman, was born on September 19, 1946, in Whiteville, North Carolina. He attended Centerville High School, where he graduated in 1964. During his adolescent years, Roger played community baseball and high school basketball. After years of being in North Carolina, he decided to head up north and move to D.C. While in D.C., he began a career in the D.C. Public School system, where he worked for 25 years. He then me his wife, Miley “Gerry” Mitchner, who also worked in the school system. The two married and began expanding their family, with Roger first adopting Miley's three oldest children and soon having a baby boy of their own, Roger Jermone Coleman.

Roger was a generous man. He loved his family and enjoyed every chance to spend time with them. Especially his late brother, Robert, and his right-hand man/nephew, Larry (aka, his “little brother”). He loved cooking on the grill and threw one of the best and biggest barbecues of all time. He would never pass up a chance to play anyone in horseshoes and cards.

Roger was welcomed into Heaven's gates by his late mother and father, Jessie and Howard Coleman. His siblings are Alice Smith and Robert Coleman; mother-in-law Catherine Mitchner; and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews, and cousins.
