Bro. Silas Coffey age 75 years, 7 months and 29 days, went to be with the Lord on Friday, October 30, 2020 from the Hospice of Lake Cumberland, in Somerset, Kentucky and was placed in the care of Hickman-Strunk Funeral Home.

Funeral services were held Monday, November 2, 2020 at 1:00 pm at the Rock Springs Baptist Church with Bro. Estel Jones and Bro. Larry Coffey officiating. Burial was in the Rock Springs Cemetery.

He was born March 1, 1945 in the Mountain View Community of Stearns, Kentucky to Beecher Coffey and Oma (Young) Coffey. Bro. Silas was saved at an early age and joined the Mountain View Baptist Church. He was ordained a Baptist minister in March of 1981 and at his passing was a member of the Old Fashioned Baptist Church in Sidney, Ohio.

He married Christine Jones on August 22, 1964. The couple moved to Sidney, Ohio and remained there for many years. Bro. Silas worked in a foundry for many years and retired from American Trim. Upon his retirement, Bro. Silas and Christine moved back to the Mountain View Community where his favorite past time was reading his bible, studying the word of God, and learning more about Jesus. His joy was witnessing and telling people about Jesus and the need to be born again at every opportunity. He wanted everyone to be saved and serve the Lord in spirit and in truth. Bro Silas favorite saying was on a plaque found at his grandfather’s home, “Only one life twil soon be past, only what’s done for Christ will last”. He believed this to be true and lived his life in this manner, always striving to do the will of the Father no matter where he was.

He is survived by, his wife of 56 years, Christine Coffey, two sons, Kirk Coffey and his wife, Laurie, and Terry D. Coffey and his wife, Tammie, a daughter, Kimberly D. Baldwin and her husband, Chuck, brothers Cleadus Coffey and his wife, Juanita, Larry Coffey and his wife, Mildred, Gary Coffey and his wife, Charlotte, and Curtis Coffey and his wife, Sherry, sisters, Mildred Bray, Margaret Welsh, and Nina Hatfield and her husband, Duane, grandchildren, Blaine Coffey and his wife, Allison, Brandie Lynn Hoekzema and her husband, Jon, Joseph and Jared Baldwin, Hannah Yancey and her husband, Jonathan, Caleb, Erin, Jillian, Karen, and Seth Baldwin, and Josiah Coffey and three great-grandchildren, Wyatt Acey, and Maverick and Austin Hoekzema.

He was preceded in death by his parents, two sisters, Sandra Gresham and Myrtle Coffey, and two brothers, Nixon and James Coffey, and a brother-in-law, Paul Welsh.

Bro Silas will be remembered as an old time Christian, who freely shared the word of God and who worked tirelessly to provide for his family. He is sorely missed, but we are comforted in knowing his faith has ended in sight.

Hickman-Strunk Funeral Home was honored to serve the family of Bro. Silas Coffey.
