Visitation will be held Saturday, July 3, 2021, at Turkey Creek Baptist Church from 10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. The service will begin at 11:00 a.m. at Turkey Creek Baptist Church with Brother Rick Glidewell and Brother Freddy Buchanan officiating. Coleman Funeral Home of Oxford is in charge of arrangements. Mr. Coleman was born February 22, 1942, to Jimmy and Roxie Potts Coleman in Calhoun County. He grew up and went to school in Calhoun County. Mr. Coleman moved to Yalobusha County and lived with his wife of 36 years, Sarah Tidwell Coleman. Luther worked in several industries. He was forced to retire, due to health, from driving log trucks, his most favorite employment. After he retired Mr. Coleman traveled the roads of Yalobusha County and Calhoun County. He knew all the back roads and short cuts. Before entering the nursing home, Mr. Coleman had regular stops and would talk with anyone and everyone. Luther’s name could not be said without a smile. He had a gruff exterior but a tender heart. He would help anyone that asked. After his wife passed in 2008, he continued daily to spend time with his mother-in-law until her passing in 2012. In the last five years of his life, Mr. Coleman lived at Yalobusha County Nursing Home. He learned to love many of the CNAs and Nurses who cared for him and they loved him. Mr. Coleman is preceded in death by his wife, Sarah Tidwell Coleman; parents, Jimmy and Roxie Potts Coleman; and son-in-law, Tony Mullins. He is survived by his son, Luther Darrell Coleman (Ruth); step-daughter, Jana Harrison Mullins; step-son, David Harrison (Liz); seven grandchildren, twelve great grandchildren and numerous cousins. In lieu of flowers please send a donation to Turkey Creek Baptist Church c/o Kathy McCharen, 7020 Hwy 32 Water Valley, MS 38965.
