Elzie Coleman Obituary, Death Cause – I am writing this to inform you of the passing of our very own Deacon Elzie Coleman, and it is with a heavy heart that I do it. Please join me in extending our most heartfelt thoughts and sympathies to his wife, Sis. Saddie, daughter Latasha, grandchild, Mother Williams, and the ENTIRE COLEMAN FAMILY during this difficult time. They will be greatly comforted by your support. Deacon Elzie exemplified what it meant to be a faithful servant of God, husband, father, grandfather, brother, and uncle to the countless people who cherished and cared for him.
He is NOTICABLY going to be missed! Well Done Deacon! We love you! Elzie McIntyre Jr., age 86, passed away on December 12, 2022 at UC Hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio. He was a resident of Dayton, Ohio. Elzie McIntyre Jr. and Pearlie McIntyre, both of whom predeceased him, welcomed him into the world on July 28, 1936 in Stephens, Arkansas. Canaan Missionary Baptist Church could always count on his undivided devotion. Elzie received her high school education from Lafayette in Cullendale, Arkansas. He attended Sinclair Community College and graduated with honors with an Associate of Arts degree.
Elzie enlisted in the United States Air Force on June 1, 1954, and he remained in the service for a total of 1954 years. After that, he enlisted in the United States Marine Corps and participated in the conflict in Vietnam while he was there. After serving for two and a half years, he grew unwell and was eventually transferred back to the United States, where he was dismissed from the military with honors.
Elzie had a deep love for his friends and family. He took genuine pleasure in attending church and socializing with the people in his community. Elzie had a lot of respect for Rev. Coleman because they served together in the Vietnam War. He is survived by three sisters, Leonia Ellis, Velonia W. (Dorris) Hemphill, and Minerva Daniels; as well as a large number of nieces, nephews, relatives, and friends. His memory will be cherished by everybody. Carmelia Anthony, Don and Carla Fry, Jim and Lori McComas, and Robert and Shirley Blackmon are some of our special pals. A unique and heartfelt thank you to all of his neighbors, as well as to the Harrison Family as a whole. Your thoughtfulness is very much appreciated by the family.
