Car wash industry loses 30-year veteran
Nov 21, 2017
For more than 30 years Randy Coleman brought his charismatic personality and creative energy to the car wash industry through the Jim Coleman Company.
Coleman joined the family company in 1980, working up to hold the office of Vice President of Sales and Marketing. During his time in the industry he also served as President of the Southwest Carwash Association and served on the International Carwash Association Board of Directors.
Coleman left the company in 2011 and had been living at the family ranch and in Costa Rica, traveling and visiting with various friends and family.
An avid outdoorsman, hunter and fisherman, Coleman was a lifetime member of the Safari Club International, the Houston Safari Club, and the Billfish Foundation. His hunting and fishing trips with his brother Russell and close friends took him to Guatemala, Cost Rica, Argentina, South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Namibia, Canary Islands, Spain, Galapagos, Venezuela, Colombia, to name a few.
His last excursion was an adventurous Alaska float trip down the Stony River with his Dad.
Randy is survived by his two sons, Spenser and Everett, his parents Jim and Lorraine Coleman, siblings Gail Jackowski, Russell Coleman, Wayne Coleman, Mary Cheatham, Annette Martin, and Pat Coleman as well as many nieces and nephews and friends.
