Cecil Wallace Coker

We are sad to announce the passing of Cecil Coker of Manchester, GA. He died at age 73 on May Thirty First. Cecil passed away surrounded by his loved ones after a battle with cancer.

Cecil loved his family deeply and was always quick with a joke. His passion was classic automobiles and his dear wife Diann. Cecil was a kind soul that never met a stranger. His laughter was contagious and he truly enjoyed helping others. Cecil and his wife traveled far and wide to every auto show they could get to.

He was preceded in death by parents; sister Mary Mezick; brothers Billy Joe, Bennie, Tilburn, Doyle and Tom Coker.

He was survived by his wife Diann; sons Ronnie (Rosa) Coker, Jeff Pilgrim, Pete Pilgrim, Chris (Tara) Coker, Brian (Amy) Coker; grandchildren Brittany (Zack) Godwin, Tori Weber, Allyson Coker, Seth Coker, Maggie and Mason Pilgrim, Ethan and Logan Coker; great-grandchildren Emorie and Kamp Godwin; sisters Clara Jones and Pam Daniel; brothers Jerry and Paul Coker

To honor Cecil’s memory, we are holding a celebration of his life on June Tenth at the Smiths Station Pavilion. We invite anyone who knew him to attend and remember his wonderful life. Drive your classic car to honor his passion of auto shows.
