Coleman was born in Alpine, Texas in 1934.
Coleman went on to work in places like Chicago, Milwaukee, Omaha, New York and eventually San Diego.
The meteorologist joined the KUSI news team in 1994, becoming the first weatherman on its newly created morning show.
Coleman retired in 2014 after 20 years at KUSI and nearly 61 in the new business.
So Long John, until we meet again. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all the family from all of us here at French Valley Press.
