Jeffrey “Jay” Coley, 46, passed away on Wednesday, July 15, 2020. He was a beloved Husband, father, brother, uncle, son and friend.
Jay was born in Edgecombe County to Wright Jerome Wooten and Vivian Carol Harris Jordan on November 11,1973. In addition to his parents he also preceded in death by his adopted father, John Alvin Coley II; brother, John Alvin Coley III; maternal grandparents Paul and Delard Harris.
He worked for many years doing different types of construction work and had his own successful roofing company for over 16 years. In his younger years you would either find him jammin out in the building to music or cruising Sunset and out running the law in his blue Camaro because he was one for loving the need for speed.
Jay enjoyed spending time in Montana and at home in North Carolina working on the farm with his wife and the occasional fishing adventures they would take to the pond or spending time with his friends. He had many family and friends so no matter where he went he would run into someone he knew. Jay had a heart of gold and would help anyone in need even when he didn’t have it to spare. Jay will be missed dearly by many family members and friends, even more so by his true love, soulmate wife.
He is survived by his loving family, including his wife of nine years, Venus Coley; father and Mother in-law, Randy and Debbie Eickhorst; son, Jeffrey Hayden Coley; daughter, Jaycee Hannah Coley; step-son, A.J. Wood; step-daughter, Anastacia Wood; brother, Michael Coley and wife Becky, sister, Crystal Smith and husband Edward; sister and brother in-law, Melisa and Matthew Russell and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.
