Coley Funeral Held at Chipola

A funeral service was held in Marianna Wednesday to pay final respects to State Rep. David Coley.

Coley was diagnosed with cancer in his liver this past December and was undergoing treatment for the disease before he passed away last Friday.

Hundreds of his friends were on hand at the Chipola College gymnasium in Marianna to honor a man that say lived his life with integrity, courage and commitment.

Coley, who was elected to the House just last November, had fulfilled his lifelong dream of being a state representative. He is survived by his wife Marti and their three children.
