Bob was my most favorite pastor ever! We kept each other on our toes. My favorite memory of Bob was when we had a special needs son, he called me into his office to talk. As we talked and cried he told me to look for him in heaven and get in line behind him. This would be the why line. As life went on we moved away and ended up starting a therapeutic horseback riding program. We have touched so many lives. I would always think back to that day and think”This-is why Bob”. I know the sadness you feel and I hold your family close to my heart. God will carry you!

There are no words to describe how much Bob Coon meant to our family! Not only as our Pastor, but as a very beloved friend to us. He was always there for what ever we needed. During the good times and bad! Births, deaths, baptism, what ever, Bob was there. He will be sorely missed! We love you Bob!

Bob has a special place in our family. When our son Nathan was 4we were leaving church one Sunday and Bob bent down to speak with Nathan as he usually did. Nathan reached up and held the cross Bob wore. I knew with utter complete certainty that Nathan would one day be a pastor. I eventually told both Bob and Joe of what I called my vision. Through Nathan's growing up years Bob served as a wonderful .mentotr to him. As a teacher one never knows where one influence ends, Bob'b light still shines

I am so deeply saddened by the loss of Pastor Coon. He was my pastor from my birth until he retired from Trinity. He baptized me, confirmed me, and married me. I admired and respected him deeply. Peace be with his family.

Dear Mrs. Coon and family, It has been many years since we've been in contact. Reading about the passing of Rev. Coon brought back many cherished memories. He dearly loved his "Ann". One of the last times I saw him was before you had your first child. Such a Godly, outgoing person. I am sorry for your loss, but rejoice knowing that he is walking heavenly streets of gold. I will always have fond memories of you and Rev. Coon. With love and admiration, Angella (Angie Stephens) Smith
