Hal Morgan Coleman, 67, of Springfield, NJ passed away peacefully in his sleep in his home on June 4, 2024. Hal was born and raised in New York City where he lived with his mother Rose and her older sister Catherine, who’s family emigrated from Ireland and set their roots down in the beautifully diverse neighborhood of Chelsea. A testament to his hardworking and enduring nature, Hal worked full time during the day and attended classes in the evening at Saint Francis College, commuting daily by foot, to help support his family while at the same time furthering his education and life’s goals.

For several decades Hal worked for the MTA in NYC, which would in turn spark his lifelong fascination of and appreciation for trains and locomotives. Hal was lucky enough to have met the love of his life and best friend, Maryanne, in 1985, and they remained inseparable ever since as they traveled the world together chasing solar eclipses and creating priceless memories. Hal eventually obtained his certification to become a train conductor, making a life-long dream of his finally a reality, before ultimately making the decision to put his growing family first and stay at home to raise his daughters instead. Hal truly was a selfless and humble person, always offering the shirt off his back to help his family and friends no matter the strain it would place on him.

Hal is predeceased by his mother and aunt, Rose and Catherine, and his loving wife Maryanne. He is survived by his two daughters, Catherine and Rose, as well as his first and only grandson Noah, whom he adored with all his heart.
