STONINGTON AND BLUE HILL – Brett Alan Coleman was born on June 23, 1966, and unexpectedly passed on Feb. 15, 2016. He was adopted by Mary and Louis Coleman, who loved him dearly.
Brett worked as a mechanic for many years at Ron’s Mobile and Charlie’s Garage and was a volunteer driver for the island ambulance. Even though he had a passion for cars, he also loved the water and was a sternman for Andrew Gove for more than 10 years. Later, he got his own captain license and fished his own boat, the Back in Black. He took great pride in the ocean and all it provides.
He enjoyed snowmobiling, fast cars, camping and boating on Toddy Pond and spending time with the people he loved. Most of all he loved game nights and dinner parties surrounded by all his favorite people.
Brett was predeceased by his brother, Bruce Hersey; uncle, Dan Coleman; and his sons, Carl and Nathaniel Coleman; and a nephew, Tristan Hersey. He is survived by his parents; children, Joshua Coleman, Stormi Steele and her husband, Garrett, and Brandi Coleman; grandchildren, Brayden Colemen and Mason Coleman; his brother, Brian Hall and his wife, Tammy; sisters, Barbara Guerrette and husband, Kevin, Brenda Hall and Beth Hersey; as well has many nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles.
A celebration of life will be held at the Island Community Center, Stonington, Saturday, Feb. 20, at 2 p.m., with a casual potluck style gathering for all family and friends who would like to attend.
Arrangements entrusted to Bragdon-Kelley Funeral Home, Stonington, Maine.
