COFFEY, Patrick A, age 74, died peacefully in his sleep Tuesday February 4, 2020. A lifelong Baha’I, he was the son of the late Paul and Dorothea Coffey in Zanesville, OH. He proudly served in the US Air Force, rising to the rank of sergeant before being honorably discharged. In the military, he learned the electronics skills he later used in his career in traffic signal maintenance. He was a public servant for over 30 years, serving in Zanesville, Upper Arlington and City of Columbus.

He suffered his first traumatic brain injury while working for the City of Zanesville. Although he was thrown 50 feet with no helmet from the top of a bucket truck and suffered nausea and the bright light syndrome typical of traumatic brain injuries, his condition was not diagnosed until decades later when he developed dizziness and suffered numerous additional falls.

He is survived by wife Cynthia Rush Coffey; brother Tim and sister-in-law Ruth Ellen of South Carolina; daughter Lara Coffey of Florida; and numerous cousins.

A Funeral Service will be 11am Saturday February 8, 2020 at Woodland Cemetery Chapel. Online memories and condolences may be left for the family at

I just learned of Pat's death, via internet Times Recorder obituary with St. Paddy's Day greeting. I knew Pat
from age 19 on. I think he graduated HS with my sister. I can still hear him singing "The Great Mandela" in
my mind. I last saw him with daughter Lara in Zanesville following her accident. That is when he gave me
a military insignia of his to give to my young son interested in such things. I tried over the years to return
that to him but lost his trail. Would an interested family member please let me know where I might send this?
Sincerely, Jane Gookins-Smidt (formerly of Zanesville, OH) now PO Box 118 Stephen, MN 56757. I am sorry for your loss.
