Carl A. Coakley, Jr. was called home to be with his Savior after a long, courageous battle with ALS on July 24, 2018. He passed from life into life at home, surrounded by his family.
He was born on December 3, 1955. He was a life-long resident of King George with deep roots in the county. He would share his love for King George and its' history with anyone who cared to listen. He graduated from King George High School in 1974. Following high school he worked for Randall Mullins. He eventually took over the business, which became Carl Coakley Landscaping and Lawncare, which he operated for over 40 years.
Carl loved the Lord and had a servant's heart. He loved his church family and was a charter member of Two Rivers Baptist Church, where he had served faithfully as Deacon and on numerous committees within the church.
Carl was married to his loving wife Jeannie for 27-1/2 years, and the greatest blessing in his life was their daughter Katie.
He was predeceased by his parents, and in addition to Jeannie & Katie, is survived by his brother Gary Coakley and the Mills, Gulick, White & White families-in-love.
Visitation will be from 6:00 to 8:00 PM on Friday, July 27, at the Storke Funeral Home in King George. A "Celebration of Life" service will be at 11:00am, Saturday, July 28th at Two Rivers Baptist Church, with burial immediately following at Potomac Baptist Church cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks donations be made to Two Rivers Baptist Church, 6420 Rokeby Lane, King George, VA 22485 or Mary Washington Hospice, 2300 Fall Hill Avenue, Suite 401 Fredericksburg, VA 22401. Condolences may be left for the family at www.storkefuneralhome.com.
