December 26, 1941 — October 3, 2020

Felton L. Coggins, 78, of Lake Park, passed away on Saturday, October 3, 2020, following a brief illness after a period of declining health. He was a lifelong resident of this area, born in Echols County on October 26, 1941 to the late James Perry Coggins and Willie Lee Rogers Coggins. He grew up on a dairy farm in Echols County and graduated from Lake Park High School in 1959. He went on to graduate from ABAC in the early 1960’s with a degree in Agricultural Business. He returned to work on the family farm and at Coggins Farm Supply until his retirement in 2013. He continued working with his sons until his health prevented him very recently. He loved watching Dirt Track Racing, taking care of his cows, and fishing with Patches, his trusty companion. He was a member of Enoch Creek Church and was a true man of faith who lived to show his love for Jesus and his fellow man. A man of high character who positively impacted everyone he crossed paths with.
