Roger Jerome Coffman passed away Saturday, March 30, 2018, of natural causes at his home in Boise, Idaho. Roger was born January 27, 1960, in Indianapolis, Indiana, to Henry “Hank” and Bonnie Coffman.
Roger graduated from Pike High School in Indianapolis. He married the love of his life, Carol LaRue Badley, on January 6, 1985, and entered the Air Force in May of 1985, advancing to the rank of sergeant at the Mountain Home Air Force Base. He was discharged with honor May of 1989. Roger was an accomplished mechanic and after his service in the Air Force, worked for Sunbelt, Morrison-Knudsen and Senco.
Roger enjoyed the outdoors - especially the mountains - and hunting, snowmobiling, and spending time with family and friends around a campfire. He loved music, attending concerts, enjoying a beer and a cigarette. Roger had a dry sense of humor but was a man of few words, showing his huge heart for family and friends through his actions. He was a kind, giving, and humble man. Roger was loved by all, and more than anything else, he loved his wife LaRue, his children, grandchildren, extended family, and friends. He will be greatly missed by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.
