Cokey was a great coach, a great storyteller, and a great friend. He was so quick to come up with a wild story about something, then back it up with “facts” that made you wonder if he serious or kidding. The time he convinced the kids at Boys Ranch that Coach Bell played in the Russian NFL was one of the funniest things ever. I watched him make a big impact on many of the kids at Boys Ranch, but he had just as great an impact on those of us who were fortunate enough to work with him. I know we will all miss him, but I take comfort in the fact that we will see him again In our heavenly home. Cokey, we love you and we will miss you.

Coach Wilson was one of my most memorable people in my teenage years. I still watch games to this day and laugh when i see what he used to call the "butt sniffer" type tackle. Ill never forget you coach!! At last you will be reunited with Liz at the pearly gates! I miss you both, and will always keep my memories of you, and the lessons you both taught. Farewell, and rest in peace.

Uncle Cokey as I always called him was the best Uncle a girl could ask for. Alot of my favorite childhood memories include Uncle Cokey, Aunt Liz, Kevin, Bodon , and Jonathan. He was always super sweet and always made sure to interact with me we had alot fun family camping trips at the lake and game nights with my parents where I got to baby sit Bodon and Jonathan. He and Liz got married in my parents livingroom. I remember when my mom met him at the pool and brought him home to meet my dad and he was family after that. He will be greatly missed by everyone in his life. He just had a way of making whoever he was talking to feel like they were the most important person in that moment. I will miss his stories and his laughter. Thank Uncle Cokey for always making me feel important. Love you miss you, Kendra Cravens. See you in the morning.......
