Mr. Cary Talmadge Coker, 62, entered into rest Thursday morning, August 22, 2019, surrounded by his loving family at his home in Cottageville.


Born March 28, 1957, in Charleston, South Carolina, he was a son of Thomas Talmadge Coker and Helen Jeannette Bryant Coker.  He was the owner and operator of C and C Hauling, LLC in Cottageville.  Cary was many things over the span of his life.  He was  tug boat captain, an equipment operator, and truck driver to name a few.  He loved deer hunting and riding his motorcycle, but his biggest love was his family.  Cary, known to most of his family as “Pawpaw” or “Coconut Head”, loved to spend time with his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.  Cary instilled into all his family to be strong, independent individuals with a good work ethic.  He will be truly missed by all of his family and friends.  He will be our family’s angel with the good Lord.
