Coy was responsible for the dedication of the headstone of his great, great grandfather, Edmund Durfee, in the Historic Nauvoo Cemetery on June 4, 2005. Edmund Durfee, Sr. was killed by the mob in November of 1845, when the Mormons returned to Morley's Settlement, near Green Plains to harvest their crops. Durfee's attackers were identified and arrested, but never brought to trial, even though "their guilt was sufficiently apparent," according to Illinois Governor Thomas Ford. Coy is survived by daughters, Dora Jeanne Pulley and Cindy Ann Carlson, seven grandchildren, three great grandchildren; siblings, Delsa Wilson, Kay Durfee, Melba Bolton and Janet Durfee.
