Albuquerque Journal (NM) - Saturday, January 3, 1998
Deceased Name: COFFEE WAS MEDICAL ADMINISTRATOR
Earl Coffee, 75, a resident of Albuquerque since 1969, and a New Mexico native, died Tuesday.
Coffee was born in Capulin on Sept. 30, 1922. He was a veteran of World War II and served in the finance offices of the U.S. Army.
He went on to have a career as a hospital administrator. He worked at Miner's Hospital in Raton for several years, then moved on to New Mexico Blue Cross Blue Shield, where he was vice-president controller. Coffee also redesigned the Financial Reporting Forms for the Civil Service Commission in Washington, D.C., and served as the county assessor in Colfax County. He retired from Presbyterian Hospital in 1984.
Coffee was a member of Heights Christian Church and a member of the Masonic Lodge. He was also a member of the Elks Club.
Coffee enjoyed traveling and visited the 50 states, Europe and the Pacific.
He is survived by his wife, Mary Ellen, and his sons, Marlin and Tim. He also is survived by numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Services will be held today at 1 p.m. at Heights Christian Church, 6935 Comanche NE.
The family is requesting that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the American Lung Association of New Mexico.

Earl was a wonderful man, kind, generous and fun loving. He worked in the accounting field for many years. He was very meticulous about his record keeping, everything was documented. He was called in, over the years, 3 times by the IRS for an audit. The first 2 times they ended up owing him money and the 3rd time when he walked in their office with his brief case the lady recognized him and put her head down on her desk and said, "Oh, Mr Coffee don't even open your brief case". That was the last time he was called in. A more honest man you'd never meet.
He'd look at the grand kids sometimes with an expression like he was going to scold them and he'd say gruffly, "Do you want me to slap a dollar bill in your pocket?" They look down and start to say NO and their facial expressions would change and they'd go YEAH!!. He was great and life meant more to all of us with him in it. No one could be missed more than Earl Coffee.
