To Steve and the hole family. I had Dick as a teacher and coach. He was such a great person at both of those professions .he was an great coach. On Thursday the coaches would tell us a joke after practice. Every players would scream for Dick to tell the joke. It would not only be funny but also a little salty. Steve I am very sorry for your lose. RIP coach. Rick Kusmer

I had Mr. Coleman in Junior High and I always liked him.  I am sure his class was the only science class I ever enjoyed.  My sympathy to the Coleman family.  I know he will be missed so very much.
