Demetric L. Coleman
Demetric loved playing baseball and football. He also took an interest in karate. He played the piano, often participating in recitals. He was a jack of all trades, a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one. In other words he was versatile and adept at many things. He loved life and was very outgoing. Always open to show himself friendly…wearing such a great big smile!
Demetric enjoyed spending time with his family and his many friends. It was a delight for him to go on outings with his children, swimming, cooking out, shopping, dining out and going to the movies. He was truly a guy full of life.
It was also a delight for him to hang close with the guys he grew up with, who gave him that special name… MEAT FROM THE STREET!!!
He will always hold a special place in our hearts.
Demetric leaves behind, his parents Willie Coleman and Etta Thomas Coleman; grandmother Bessie Thomas; brother Jerronne Wesley Coleman (Tracey), sisters Katriona Wilson (Wallace), Katrina Wilson (Antonio), Chrystal Todd; son Jabari Harper, daughters Armani Coleman, Ariana McPherson, Ava Spellman; and a very special partner Monica Mathews; uncle Stanley Thomas, Jr. (Pearl), aunts Brenda Higgs, Betsy Thomas (Ronnie) and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, family and friends.
