August 6, 1953 - August 23, 2014
Charlie, 61, was killed in a traffic accident on 8/23/14 near his home in Kingwood, Texas. He was born in Denver, CO, on August 6, 1953, to Geraldine & James Coble, Sr., now deceased. He leaves behind his faithful & loving wife of 40 years, Shawn Mehlin Coble, proud son, Kelly (Rachel), loving daughter, Kati; sisters Patricia Lindsly (Don), Jacki Fitzgerald( Bob); sisters-in-law Patricia Coble (wife of deceased brother James Coble, Jr.), Lark Applehans (Wayne), Erin Whelan (Jim); nieces Kimberly, Aimee, Michelle & Anna; great-nieces Gabrielle, Sloan, Lauren, Ava & Kate; nephews Corey, Chris, JJ, Jared & Ryan; great-nephew Leonardo.
Charlie & Shawn met in 1969 at Aurora Central High School in Colorado. They married on 6/8/74 & he began working with Hufford Construction of Denver. In 1975, at 21, he began a new chapter in life working on the ramp at Stapleton Airport for Continental Airlines. His career evolved over 35 years taking him and his family to Grand Junction, CO, San Francisco, CA, back to Colorado, then to Newark, NJ, and finally to Houston, TX where he retired as a VP with ExpressJet Airlines in November, 2010. Charlie & Shawn forged so many incredible friendships over the years with some of the finest people on the planet – his “beloved airline co-workers, golf buddies, motorcycle gang & neighbors”, while never leaving behind his childhood friends in Aurora, CO. These people continued to be an integral part of his & his families’ lives, and as Charlie would say, “They are the people I want in my fox-hole”!
