William "Bill" Coon

December 23, 1957 - May 10, 2018

William "Bill" Coon, 60, of Fairmount, passed away May 10, 2018, at his home.
He was born December 23, 1957, in Danville, the son of Raymond and Pauline Coon.
Bill lived in Fairmount. You could find him riding his scooter and soaking up the sunshine in the summer. He loved hanging with his friends, country music, western movies and cold beer. Bill was an avid Chicago Cubs and Chicago Bears fan.
Before he was divorced, he was married to Kim Wolfe-Coon, who remains a part of our family.
Bill loved spending time with his son, Billy, and his six beautiful grandkids. His favorite thing to do with them was to give them rides on the scooter when they were little. They have been coming to see grandpa every Saturday and he looks forward to their visits.
He has a special place in his heart for his Uncle Ray and can't wait to be with him and his dad and sister.
Bill has been able to be at his mother's house for the last few months surrounded with her loving care. Friends and family have been at his side helping to care for him. Our memories of his earlier years have been good conversations. He will truly be missed by all who knew and loved him.
He is survived by his mother, Pauline Coon Hendrix; son, William "Billy" Dean (Lacey) Coon; brothers, Raymond Edward Coon Jr., Ted Ernest (Cintarie) Coon ; sisters, Paulette (Kenneth) Miller, Rosann (Carl) Pinney, Shirley (Steve) Hauger, Rhoda (Tom) Kelly, Chris (Mike) Dougherty, Pam (Bill) Elliott; grandkids, Alexis Lee Anne, Makayla Nichole, Landon Dean, Connor Allen, Brenden Lane, Elena Rayne Coon; and many nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles.
A celebration of Bill's life will be at 1 p.m. Tuesday, May 15, at Sunset Funeral Home and Cremation Center in Danville with Pastor Mike Roberts officiating. Visitation will be 4-7 p.m. Monday, May 14, at the funeral home. The family requests everyone dress casual. Bill will be laid to rest at Oakhill Cemetery.
