Mr. Eddie Ray “Bebo” Coker, age 55,  passed away Thursday, September 3, 2020, at his home with his family around him when his heavenly father called him home.

Mr. Coker was born in Rome, GA, February 4, 1965, to Edward Coker and Eunice Brookshire Coker. Ray was of Baptist faith and member of Bethlehem Baptist Church in Gordon County.

Ray was an old car fanatic,  antique car show enthusiast, and huge NASCAR fan of Dale Earnhardt Sr.  He loved collecting Hot Wheels with his grandson, Tristen, Hot Rod Magazines, and pictures from the many shows he attended. He enjoyed working on cars and learned the trade of lawn mower repair from his granddad Henry, and was known around town as the person to come to if you needed something fixed. He loved fishing when he could and hanging out with his family and friends. Ray never met a stranger, and would give the shirt off his back if you needed it.
