Kevin Coates Obituary, Death- Our dearly valued colleague Kevin Coates, who was 42 years old and had been ill for only a few days, passed suddenly on December 22 due to an unexpected illness. It is with deep sorrow that we share this news with you.
Kevin was well known within the motor factors market due to the fact that he had been working in the field for a total of 25 years, devoting the most of his time in the more recent years to Fleet Factors and TVC. Kevin was cherished by both workers and consumers, earning him a great deal of respect within the industry.
Working with him was a pleasure, and he never made me feel like I was asking too much. He was generous to a fault and had a heart of gold. He was someone who went the extra mile in all he did. It was a blessing to get to know and love Kevin, and he made an indelible mark on everyone he came in contact with.
He went away with his wife, daughters, and other members of the family that he cherished by his side. At this trying and unfortunate time, we would like to ask you to join us in extending our sincerest sympathies to Kevin’s family and loved ones.
The funeral ceremony will be held on Wednesday, January 11th, 2023 at 10:00 a.m. at Holy Trinity Church, located at Davison Drive in Hartlepool, TS24 9BY. This will be followed by a brief committal service held at West View Cemetery at 11:00 a.m. on the same day.
Following the service, a wake will be held at the Rovers Quoit Club, located at Easington Road, Hartlepool, TS24 8JZ. Family and friends are invited to attend.
Instead of sending flowers, the Coates family has asked that donations be made to Macmillan Cancer Relief and Pools Youth using the collection boxes that will be located at the wake.
