Coleman Edward Due, 82, passed away Friday, October 21, 2016 in Willow Park. He was at home with his beloved family and died of complications of COPD and a recent stroke.

The third of nine children, Coleman was an unassuming, friendly man who never met a stranger and left a welcoming feeling to everyone he met. The native Texan from Apple Springs was in the Army in the 1950s before beginning a career in retail management. During this time he managed Clark’s and Gibson’s department stores in Fort Worth, Abilene, Odessa, and Plano. He ended his long working career delivering for Manor Bread, making friends along the way while providing for his family.

Coleman was a self-taught master carpenter, and he continued his life-long interest in woodworking in retirement. In fact, most furniture in his home and family members’ homes are full of his artistic handy work which will be passed on through the generations.

He is preceded in death by his parents, Arthur and Addis; sister Jaunita Due, and brother James Due. He is survived by his wife of 55 years, Maria Due; daughter Leasa Salavarria and her husband, Jeff; daughter Kim Vacco and her husband, Rich; son Scott Due; grandchildren Peyton Salavarria, Andrew Salavarria, Rachael Vacco, Preston Vacco, Reid Vacco and Grayson Vacco; and one brother and five sisters.

The service was scheduled for October 28, 2016 at Mount Olivet Funeral Home in Fort Worth, Texas.
