Ronnie Eugene "Mojo" Coleman departed this life on January 17, 2024, in South Bend, Indiana. He was born on June 4, 1952, in Little Rock, Arkansas to the union of Geraldine (Moore) Johnson and Joe Coleman, Sr. who preceded him in death. At an early age, he moved to South Bend, Indiana and attended SBCSC schools, graduating from Central High School in 1970.

Ronnie worked as an Over the Road Truck Driver for over 30 years. After retirement, he continued to drive and transport people to various locations.

He will be sorely missed.

Ronnie was a very avid sports fan and especially a loyal fan of the Notre Dame girls' basketball team. He loved table tennis and always claimed to be the best. He enjoyed playing cards and board games. He always talked of his all-girls softball team that he coached and was proud of in 1972. He loved old vintage cars and knew every one of them. He enjoyed talking to everyone.

Ronnie established a bond with members of the Progressive Missionary Baptist Church under the leadership of Pastor Barry Spencer and he enjoyed fellowship with the congregation.
