Rev. Lyle E. Coleman

Reverend Lyle Eugene Coleman, age 89, of Linn, peacefully passed from his earthly home to his heavenly home on Thursday, June 8, 2017.

Lyle was born on July 26, 1927, in Miami, MO, a son to the late Roland Samuel and Mary (Colyer) Coleman.

On May 13, 1948, Lyle was united in marriage to Georgia R. Ford in Marshall, MO. She survives of the home.

Lyle was called to the ministry and licensed by the First Baptist Church in Slater, MO in 1959, and ordained in 1960 by the Pleasant Ridge Baptist Church in Holts Summit. He attended Missouri Baptist College, Hannibal LaGrange Campus, and Lincoln University. For 58 years, Lyle was committed to teaching, preaching, counseling, missions and ministry in the Southern Baptist Convention. At the time of his death, he was still the pastor at College Hill Baptist Church in Bland, MO. Lyle had a special love and devotion for the Missouri Baptist Children’s Home and served on their board for many years.

Lyle will be lovingly remembered and deeply missed by his wife of 69 years, Georgia and his children, Robert “Bob” Coleman of Jefferson City and Lyla Coleman of Linn; he will be forever loved and remembered by daughter-in-law’s, Kathy Coleman of Springfield and Darlene Behlmann, of Fulton;four grandchildren, Camille Villalobos, Bill (Jennifer) Coleman, McKenzie (Charley) Spencer, and Matthew Coleman; Lyle leaves a legacy of ten great grandchildren who are fortunate to have fond memories of their Great Grandpa. Lyle has numerous nieces and nephews, and has officiated many wedding ceremonies in the family over the years. They all loved their Uncle Lyle. He also leaves behind extended family, a host of friends and those church members who called him their preacher and bear special love and gratitude to him.

In addition to his parents, Lyle was preceded in death by: a son, Kenneth “Ken” Coleman; Four brothers; and five sisters.

There are many among us who are better people for having known, loved and associated with Lyle E. Coleman. Family, friends and those whose lives Lyle touched are invited to the visitation which will be held at Sassmann’s Chapel, 207 Linn Ave, Belle, MO on Sunday, June 11, 2017, from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. to reminisce, grieve, support each other and rejoice at having known Lyle.
