We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Roan Family Funeral Home
BRISTOL- It is with a very painfully hurting heart that I tell you my very much-loved son, Kore James Coleman, passed away on December 27, 2021. Myself and Kore’s twin brother’ Karl were with him. We told him not to be afraid as his dad was waiting to welcome him home. We also told Kore that in no time, he and his dad would be teaching God how to fish and catch turtles the right way. I am positive Kore now has his angel wings.
Kore leaves behind many close family members and friends. There is his gram, Florence LeBlanc, his aunt, Debbie, his twin brother, Karl Leroy Coleman, a younger sister, Kasey Mae Coleman and his very much-loved girlfriend, Stephanie Winters. Then there's me, Lisa Coleman, Kore’s mom. Kore had 2 sons, Jasper Coleman and Elijah Coleman. He wasn’t as close to them as he wanted to be but he loved those beautiful boys with his whole heart. Kore also had a strong bond with his awesome nephew, Mason Coleman. There is also Kore’s other auntie, Anna Labraney. Kore would do anything for Anna.
Kore has so many friends that there are too many to mention. Susan Anguish meant the world to Kore. She was like a second mom to him. I am sure he'd like me to thank her for being so nice to him. I also want to mention Josh Beede, as he and Kore spent many summers days fishing together. Matthew Daniels also needs mentioning. He and Kore loved being outside. It didn't matter why, just as long as they were outside. Kore truly enjoyed Matt's company. Then, there's Charles Herra. He and Kore would play a lot of cards together. I'm pretty sure Kore was always the winner. Also, Kore had a great deal of respect and friendship with a wonderful man we will call Jonny Buck. Kore will be watching over all of his beloved family and friends. I’m thinking that Kore’s best friend in life was always his dad, Dean Coleman. Dean taught our children so much while he was still with us.
Kore took on the responsibility of caring for his dad when Dean got sick. Kore took care of Dean with so much love and gentleness for the last 2 years of Dean’s life. Kore showed his dad much respect and he did an awesome job always trying to make his dad comfortable and feel loved. Any man would be proud to call Kore his son. Kore’s favorite thing to do was fishing, which involved a considerable amount of swimming and turtle catching. He was extremely good at all 3 things. Kore even had a pet turtle for many years. Kore couldn’t learn enough about all animals as he had a special place in his heart for them. Another favorite past time for Kore was riding ATV’s. He drove his first one at the age of four thanks to Aunt Debbie buying it for all 3 children.
Kore had no fear. Riding continued to be a lifelong love. The muddier - the better, of course. Kore lived in a building with 29 other apartments. He started having nightly small fires and many of the neighbors would sit around the fire in a circle. Kore would set this up every summer. Chuck, Matt, Collin, Jake, Keith, Jay, Stephanie and a few others, spent many days in this circle. He wouldn't hear of buying fire wood. He would say "our woods are full of fallen and dead trees that need to be cleaned up." I want everyone to know how kind, caring, considerate, and loving Kore was. I know my life will never be what it was compared to when Kore was around.
Kore’s brother, sister, and girlfriend would like you to read how they feel about Kore next. I will start with Karl.
He says he will always remember how Kore would think of others, always asking if he could help with whatever for whoever. Kore had a heart made of solid gold. Even when the mood was not good, Kore would lighten it by cracking a joke and flashing his beautiful smile. He made things better wherever we went. Kore was and always will be loved by everyone who was lucky enough to know him. Rest peacefully Kore. I will forever miss you. Your forever loving brother, Karl.
Kasey Coleman, Kores younger sister says, "I could not have asked for a gentler or a kinder soul in a brother. Anyone who knew Kore, was blessed. I will be forever thankful for the 31 years I've been able to have you by my side. Rest easy now my bro and may your soul fly high." Loving you forever...... your sister, Kasey Mae.
Lastly, we will let Stephanie have her say as Kore loved her dearly. She says, "Kore you were the kindest man I've had in my life. You would brighten my darkest days just by being you. I will forever love you Kore. Now rest in peace my angel. I will miss you till my last breath."
Kore was a lucky man to be loved by so many. I am proud of all my children and I know Kore will now be guiding us through what we have left of life till he can greet us all at the great gate. I will never stop missing your face and there will always be a piece of me missing cause your gone. Fly so very high my boy. Your mom, family, and friends will see you again soon.
