Coral Leroy Hollis
Coral Leroy Hollis, 47, was called home peacefully, in his sleep, by his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, on January 8, 2017, following an extended illness. He was born on February 24, 1970, to the late Roy Hollis, Sr. and Carrie Lee Hollis. Coral graduated from East High School, Erie, Pa.

He enjoyed serving the Lord and was a devoted member of Hopewell Missionary Baptist Church, where he served as a Deacon, choir member, and a drummer in the music ministry. He loved everyone and always made you smile. He was a huge fan of WWF Wrestling. He loved to listen to old-school albums and going to concerts. He enjoyed spending time with his family. In addition to his parents, he was preceded into rest by four brothers, Walter Tate, Sandy Tate, Charles Hollis, and Bernard Johnson; one sister, Bobbi Jean Tate-Smith; and his loving stepmother, Hattie Mary Hollis.
