Ethan E. Coogler, 93, of Sneads, Florida, died January 25, 2014. Ethan Coogler was a man unlike any other. He was a man who understood the meaning of hard work; a man who wasn’t ashamed to explain the way he felt. He knew how to control his tongue, unless Grandma’s cooking was around, then he made an exception. Every morning, he was the first to awaken, then it was off to the water to fish. For many years, he went fishing every day, except on Sundays, of course. He held the belief that you shouldn’t fish on Sundays, which was good, because that gave the family more time to see Grandpa and also time to clean and cook some of the fish that filled both freezers.
Survivors include his wife, Rezillion Coogler, and a host of other relatives and friends.
Services were held Saturday, February 1, at Friendship AME Church, in Chattahoochee, Florida. Interment followed at UBA Cemetery, Crawfish Island Community, Chattahoochee.
Crawford & Moultry Funeral Home, Chattahoochee, was in charge of arrangements.
