Obituary for Richard M. Coleman

Richard M. “Dick” Coleman, age 78, of Shakopee, MN, entered eternal life on Saturday, April 1, 2017, at St. Gertrude's Health Center in Shakopee.
Richard was born on August 1, 1938, in Bloomington, MN, the son of Francis and Helen (Schultz) Coleman. He married Shirley Menden on June 10, 1961, in Shakopee, MN at Church of St. Mark. Richard loved everything about his wife, Shirley; they did everything together.
Richard was a 3rd Degree member of the Shakopee Knights of Columbus. Prior to retirement, he worked for Scott County in Building Maintenance. Richard also drove school bus for 45 years as a part-time job; he especially loved to drive bus for sporting activities and field trips. It was a part-time job but also a hobby. He also liked to feed birds and squirrels.
Richard would do everything for everyone else, not worry about himself. He put himself last. He was a caring father, and loved his grandkids and enjoyed going to their sporting events.
Richard is survived by his loving wife, Shirley; daughters and sons, Patty (Tom) Weckman, Rick (Kelly), Allen (Beth), Peggy (Nate) Bare, Pam (Mike) Tuft; grandchildren, Kassandra, Kristina and Timothy Weckman, Nathan, Zackery and Trentyn Coleman, Brandon, John and Jacob Coleman, Alyxandria and Eric Bare, Ryan Tuft; great-granddaughter, Nora; sisters, Shirley Egan and Fran Kreuser. He was preceded in death by his parents, Francis and Helen.
