Speaking the Truth in Love

Willie Coleman

Willie Coleman was appointed a deacon in 2013. Son of Charlie and Nellie Coleman, Willie was born and raised in Dallas County. His family moved from Dallas to Seagoville when he was a second grader. After high school graduation, Willie attended the trade school Control Data Institute, where he studied computer technology.

Willie employed his computer skills in a New Hampshire factory, repairing mother boards and peripheral boards. But he only lived in the Granite State for a year and a half. When it snowed in June, Willie was ready to come home to sunny Texas.

In 1979, Willie married his sweetheart, Joyce Gills. They raised two daughters and one son—Tomika, Brandi, and Willie Jr. The Colemans also have three grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

Willie works for a bank as an IBML scanner. In his leisure time he enjoys playing games with his family and working in the yard.
