Rev. Larry Coldiron, age 69, went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, May 5, 2020 with his friends and loved ones by his side after a long battle of lung cancer.  He was born October 14, 1950 and was a lifelong resident of Sneedville.  He accepted Christ into his heart at an early age and spent his life teaching others about the beauties and all of the riches that Christ has to offer and how amazing Christ has been to him.  He did not know a stranger and all that met him loved him.  He was a Vietnam veteran and took pride in serving his country.  He was a lifetime member of the Hancock County Rescue Squad.  He also took pride in trying to make sure that everyone around him was taken care of and knew that they were loved unconditionally.  He never met a child that didn’t love him and that wasn’t attached to him.  He was preceded in death by his parents, Warren & Ada Coldiron; brothers, James Wayne Coldiron & Homer Bradley Coldiron and grandparents, Jess & Nan Bunch and Harvey & Effie Coldiron
