Coffman was in charge of the kennels at Walnut Hall Farm for several years and was well known with Beagle handlers all over the United States. He trained several champion beagles. Coffman was a semi pro boxer and won several fights at the old Woodland Auditorium in Lexington Ky. He was conscious of his physique and tried to stay in shape all his life.

He later opened a welding shop in Stamping Ground, repairing equipment for farmers and anyone else who needed his services. He moved his shop to Georgetown in the late 1950's. Politics were also interesting to him and he was consulted by many prospective candidates before they threw their hat into the ring.
