The staff and Board of the Chamber send our condolences out to the family of our recently deceased friend and Board member Roger Coleman, Publisher of Hudson Catskill Newspapers.

Roger was a tremendous contributor to our organization and will be greatly missed.  Roger was not the type of person to just lend his name to our letterhead, he got involved.  Roger regularly emceed Chamber functions and was a regular speaker for Leadership Columbia County.   Roger attended the majority of Chamber events and was always willing to lend a hand or offer advice.

Most of all Roger was a great friend.  He was a good listener, offered thoughtful advice, and loved to tell stories about his own personal experiences.  His smiling face and warm personality are greatly missed.   

In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund, Roger F. Coleman Grandchildren’s Education Fund, has been established in care of Bailey Family Funeral Home, 2110 Argillite Road, Flatwoods, Ky. 41139. Condolences for the family may be sent to
