Waymond Bard Coleman, III, 79, passed away on April 20, 2021, in Corpus Christi Texas due to COVID complications.
Waymond Coleman was born on August 13, 1941, in San Antonio, TX, to Waymond B. Coleman, Jr., and Nell Coleman-Coleman. Waymond graduated from Jefferson High School in San Antonio, TX, and earned a Master Plumber’s license at the age of 16. He went on to become the owner of Mr. Plumber’s Plumbing Co. in Corpus Christi, TX.
Waymond married Pauline Moore Coleman on June 9, 1962, in San Antonio, TX, whom he cherished for 58 years; she was the love of his life. They had four beautiful daughters, Elizabeth Cates, Emily Raska, Jennifer Rubio, and Kimberly Hansen. He also raised as his own his niece, Grace Forbes, nephew, James Sullivan, along with granddaughter, Lauren Puglisi.
Waymond loved fishing and hunting, and he could barbeque like a Pitmaster! He loved traveling and visited many countries, including Ireland, Scotland, England, Monte Carlo, France, New Zealand, Fiji, Mexico, Chili, and Argentina. One of the highlights of his life were the many “brother adventure trips” with his brother, James Coleman. However, his all-time favorite activity was spending time with his family!
Waymond was the most kind, selfless, hard-working, humble, compassionate man you could ever meet. He showed us how loving God is the only way to truly live your life and how to live it to the fullest. Anyone who knew him was blessed to have him in their life. He was a man of his word, with the kindest of sprit and a brave soul -- a true testament of his faith.
Waymond is survived by his wife, Pauline Coleman of Corpus Christi, TX; daughters Elizabeth (Chuck) Cates of Lake Jackson, TX, Emily (Michael) Raska of Corpus Christi, TX, Jennifer (Richard) Rubio of Leakey, TX, and Kimberly (Chris) Hansen of Mathis, TX; known as Papa to his 12 beloved grandchildren, Connilee Lusk, Lynn Besanceney, Sarah Stanislaw, Jennifer Baker, Lauren Puglisi, Allie O'Brien, Michelle Holland, Amy and Madison Rubio, and Coleman, Carson, and Caragan Raska; and his 18 precious great-grandchildren. He was also survived by many nieces and nephews whom he adored, numerous other cherished family members and friends, and his best buddy, Gene.
Our family would like to thank New Century Hospice for its support and Kings Crossing Church of Christ, which was his long-attended church family.
Waymond is preceded in death by his parents, his wife's parents, and his only brother, James Coleman, brother-in- law, Robert Moore, and sisters-in-law, Vicky Moore and Barbie Moore.
The service for Waymond Bard Coleman, III, will be held on Saturday, May 1, 2021, at 1:00 pm at Kings Crossing Church of Christ, 5901 Yorktown Blvd., Corpus Christi, TX 78414.
There will be a private burial at Duncan Cemetery.
