Obituary for George N. Coleman III

George spent seventy-two years of service to the nation; eighteen as a military dependent, twenty-four as an Airman, twenty as a civil servant, and 15 years in retirement. Survived by wife, Joyce; daughter, Ann Coleman; son, George N. Coleman, IV; daughter-in-law, Rose Coleman; grandson, Jonathan Coleman. Preceded in death by parents, George and Jeanette Coleman, Jr.

For George, the military was a way of life. It afforded him the means of finding himself. George enlisted in the United States Air Force on 3 March 1960; however, his journey began 18 years earlier, the day he was born. After high school graduation, George headed off to college but soon became disillusioned, and began searching for what he wanted to do with his life. The Air Force gave him that opportunity. It was a love affair right from the beginning. The challenge was striking a balance between three competing needs: the Nation’s, his family’s, and his own.

His goals were to become a Chief Master Sergeant, spend 20 years as a civil servant, and balance the three competing needs without sacrificing one for the other. As a loving and loyal husband, dedicated father, and honorable leader, George achieved all three goals. The only personal need he had to the very end was to keep his mind active and enjoy life each and every day.

The family will hold a private inurnment at Omaha National Cemetery.
