Mr. Ronald Coleman, 76, of Murray, passed away on Tuesday, October 11, 2022 at Kindred Hospital Indianapolis. 

Mr. Coleman was born on July 11, 1946 in Paducah, KY to the late Columbus and Elizabeth Butler Coleman.  He proudly served in the United States Marines in which he was a helicopter mechanic during Vietnam.  Ronald was an avid fisherman, woodworker and loved to collect rocks, crystals and gems and he passed that interest along to his daughter, Mary.  Mr. Coleman graduated with a Bachelor's Degree in Agriculture and Equine Science and taught school for some time but always had a deep love for all animals.  In addition, he attended culinary school in Kansas and to show off his cooking skills he would always cook breakfast for his family. He often said he loved to bring his family together around the kitchen table.  He carried that love of culinary skills in to the restaurant business, M.E.'s Green Horse Cafe, named after his daughter, for over 15 years with three locations.  Mr. Coleman was a gentleman who accepted everyone like they were his own family and he will be dearly missed.

He is preceded in death by his loving wife of 51 years, Celia Coleman; two brothers, Danny and Stephen Coleman, in addition to his parents. 

Those he lovingly leaves behind include his daughters, Mary Coleman and husband, Adarsh Asepu of Indianapolis, Eva Moore of Murray and bonus daughters, Ashlee Whitley and Hannah Duncan of Murray.
