Dr. Harold G. Coffin

April 9, 1926 — April 25, 2015

Dr. Harold G. Coffin, of Ranger, Georgia, passed to his rest at Gordon Hospital on April 25, 2015 at the age of 89.

Born to missionary parents in Nanning, China, Harold dedicated his life to the study of paleontology. A devout believer in a literal 6-day creation, his research took him around the world as he searched for evidence that showed that science and the Bible record of a worldwide flood is reflected in the geological makeup of the world as we see it today. He authored or co-authored six books and multiple scientific articles that reached all age groups.

He leaves behind a strong legacy and a family that loved him dearly that includes his wife of nearly 68 years, Emma Coffin of Ranger, GA; children, Gordon and Glenda Hayward of Ranger, GA, and Michael and Kris Stevenson of Brentwood, British Columbia, Canada; Grandchildren, Jon and Shannon Gabbard of Louisville, KY, Michaela Stevenson of Seattle, WA, Nicolas Hayward of Lacombe, Alberta, Canada, Callen Stevenson of Brentwood, BC; and one great-grandchild, Tyler Gabbard of Louisville, KY.

Graveside funeral services for Dr. Harold G. Coffin will be held at 3:00 PM Friday, May 1, 2015 from Chandler Cemetery, with Gary Rustad and Jonathan Montes officiating. Music will be arranged by Nancy Sharp. Pallbearers serving will include Gordon Hayward, Rick Claus, Eric Claus, Gary Rustad, Jonathan Montes, and Fernando Verduzco.

His family and a host of friends from around the world look forward to the day when Jesus calls him from his sleep and they can spend eternity together. A memorial service will be held at a later date.
