I was saddened to learn of your dad's passing. His first cousin Charles Coe was my husband, who sadly died two weeks before Art on October 29 in Atlanta. I met both of you as little girls years ago. With love and concern, Elbia Coe

I remember Mr. Coe as one of the kindest men, and Mrs. Coe wonderful. They were a part of my childhood since Linda is-I think, my oldest friend. My brother was married to Dee Dee in first grade, and I was always happy to have the Coe's as in-laws. :) Rest in peace, dear Mr. Coe. You always live in a special place in my heart. Love, Ann Marie

Mr. Coe was my neighbor and the father of my very best childhood friend, Dee Dee (Diane), who coincidentally visited me in Los Angeles, just days before he passed. He was integral to my childhood, my family's lives--as was his wife, Sandy, (who passed approximately 20 years ago, all too soon), his lovely daughter, Linda, and Deedles (as my father affectionately called her--his mixed doubles partner). I know I speak for my family when I say he will be dearly missed.

Dear Diane and family, Art was truly a wonderful gentleman, smart, funny and faithful. He is deeply missed. Rev Janet Abel and Holy Nativity

Diane, Linda, and families, It saddens me to hear of Mr. Coe's death. I have such fond memories of what a sweet man he was when I was growing up in Endicott and friends with Diane. He was so welcoming whenever I would come to the house. I so loved watching he and Mrs. Coe create their stained glass window catchers in the kitchen. So much so that they inspired me to learn how to create stained glass in recent years! I moved away from Endicott 35 years ago, but those childhood memories remain very strong.. May he rest in peace with Mrs. Coe now.

I can’t text you anymore, Art, so I will light this candle instead. Missing you.

Many wonderful happy memories of my big brother - my only brother- my only sibling. I’m so glad he and DeeDee and Linda traveled to CA to see us 1 1/2 yrs ago. Wish I could be @the Service. I’ll be there in spirit so “save me a seat.”

Greg and I will miss your love of life, intense interest in music, sharing of books, shopping til we drop, eating speedies, and cooking with fire (remember when we almost burned through the chiminea?), your great photography, sharing your artful stained glass, bird watching (and cats), and wine tours and tastings. We will continue to celebrate life with your daughters and family the same way you taught us. Thank you so much for your special, kind friendship, and for your daughters. Enjoy your new journey. Love, Lisey.
