To The Coenen Family ... my heart goes out to all of you for your loss. What can I say about the loss of my Godfather and one of my favorite uncles, sweet Uncle Harry. When I was younger and growing up playing with the four Coenen boys (my cousins), Uncle Harry would sometimes holler at us to quiet us down when we got too loud and boisterous. His bark sometimes scared me but as I grew up. However, I came to learn that his "bark was worse than his bite" as underneath, truth be told, he was a big ole softie. I will certainly miss his wit and humor and that smile and grin of his. And "thank-you" Harry for not minding that unlike my other sisters, you didn't seem to be offended when I would not let you cut my hair with your "bowl cut" styles that my sisters had to deal with. ;-P Maybe because I was your godchild you let me get away with it and keep my long, blonde hair. ;-) May you rest in peace with my beloved Aunt Nancy, along with my parents, Don and Marie Gerhartz. You will certainly be missed on this earth. Until we meet again, lovingly your niece, Mary Riner

Grandpa, I don’t know where to begin, thank you for always being there for me and helping me thru any problems I encountered. Thank you for showing me the sport of softball and always being my biggest critic but best supporter. You taught me to work hard and never give up on softball or anything else that I do. I could never thank you and Grandma enough for everything you two did for me and the love you two gave to me. You will be missed by me and everyone else around, you are so loved Grandpa. I miss you like crazy already and love you.

Harry, had quick wit, I remember going in to get a haircut and my hair was long he blasted me in a way I deserved, and if course, got the patented short hair cut. When I was getting married, He gave me a real close shave. The Coenen family was blessed to have Harry as their father, grandfather and to others in the area as a straight shooter and a community volunteer who impacted youth. Thanks Harry!

He heals the brokenhearted, He binds up their wounds. (Psalms 147:3) Very sorry to learn of Mr. Coenen's passing. My heart goes out to the entire Coenen family. Harry brought energy and passion to everything He did & his passion was contagious to everyone around him. His memory will live on in the hearts of those who loved him. May Harry rest in eternal peace.

The loss of Grandpa Coenen breaks my heart. He was my Daughter Brittany's second Hero after losing her father. He was the greatest grandpa a girl could have. Always there for her. I will miss his cute smile and funny comments. To the entire Coenen family I am sorry for your loss of this wonderful man.

Scott, Jeff, Kevin, and families ..... my heartfelt condolences! Harry always cracked me up once I got to know him. Scott, remember when we were about 14, he got down on the floor and challenged me to an arm wrestling contest. LOL!

We are all blessed to have memories about our parents and our friends parents. Some are interesting, some are humorous, some provide the meaning of hard work and some evolve around celebrating each others company and being good sons. Bottom line--We are all better people because of the experience and guidance that our parents and buddy's parents provided us. RIP Harry
