Obituary of Scott A. Coleman

Scott A. Coleman On July 14, 2023, Scott Adam Coleman, at the age of 63, after a long battle with Congestive Heart Failure, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family, a wife Susan, a daughter Jamie Lee, and a son Steven William. He was born on July 13, 1960 in Rochester, NY to his late Father and Mother, William Coleman and Dianne Clark Coleman. He graduated from Honeoye Falls-Lima High School in 1978, where he was on the Football Team. He then received an Associate's degree in Design and served in the Navy based on a submarine. He is survived by his wife and children, his sisters Karen (Jeff) Hull and Suzen (Matt) Bickford, a brother James Coleman, as well as a niece and several nephews and extended family. Also, a daughter, Ashley Peralta, whom he was never able to meet. Though Scott lived a difficult life with having both parents pass away before the age of 21, he was a loving, caring and sensitive soul. He was always the life of the party, full of jokes and stories to make people smile. Scott was extremely creative and always had an art project of various mediums on hand. As a food lover, he was a Chef and Director of Food Services for most of his career, though hated cooking dinner at home. He loved being outside and was fond of several outdoor activities, such as golfing, fishing, gardening, hiking, and skiing, which he imprinted upon his children. He was also a font of knowledge with facts about history, nature, and pop culture. He always had a fact or anecdote to share about every place he would travel, every movie he would watch, and every song he loved. He loved animals, especially dogs, caring for several pets (including a calf that he nursed back to health), and was a secret lover of cats, as much as he would deny it. He loved sharing these passions with everyone around him, leaving a profound and lasting impact on his loved ones. Instead of Funeral Services, we will be holding a Celebration of Life, per his wishes. It will be held Saturday, July 29th, 2023 at the Rush Creekside Inn at 1pm. Friends and Family are encouraged to attend with any photos, stories or anecdotes about Scott. Please RSVP to the Rest Easy, Scott Coleman (A Celebration of His Life) event on Facebook if you would like to attend. In lieu of flowers, please send a donation in support of Rochester Regional Health Hospice Care. They provided excellent services to Scott and his family with care and compassion. All charitable donations made to Hospice Care are put towards paying for patients that do not have insurance coverage or the ability to pay, as no one is denied service. Donations can be made on the Hospice Care website or sent to RRH Hospice at 330 Monroe Ave, Suite 400, Rochester NY, 14607. Love you forever, Scott. Thanks for all the amazing family trips, late night conversations, and life lessons. You will be dearly missed – Susan, Steven and Jamie Lee.
