Jimmy was born October 26, 1947 in Halifax County to the late Harvey Coggins and Mittie Lou Barnes Coggins.
Jimmy loved fishing and was an avid Carolina fan. He also loved working in the yard. Most of all he loved our Lord and Savior and singing about him. He had a southern gospel music group for over 20 years. People thought he and Vicki were joined at the hip, because you never saw one without the other. We are looking forward to singing together in Heaven.
He is survived by his wife Irene “Vicki” Coggins of the home; his brother, Johnny Wayne Coggins and his wife Vickie of Roanoke Rapids; his step-children, James Richard Black, Gregory Wayne Black and his wife Beverly and Tammy Shearin Thompson and her husband Richard all of Dunn; his step-grandchildren, Justin Black, Bradley Hansley and Karen Rose Stephenson and her husband Jeff; his step-greatgrandchildren, Garrett Black, Connor Stephenson and Lance Stephenson.
