His family moved to Miami, FL when he was four months old. In 1952, he enlisted in the Navy; during his time in the military he met his wife, Janet, in Philadelphia. They were married in 1956, moving back to Florida the following year.
Coy worked for Florida Power and Light for 37 years, retiring in 1993. He was a member of the Moose Lodge and a long-time active member of Grace United Methodist Church. He loved fishing, watching the Miami Dolphins, Hurricanes, and Alabama Crimson Tide play football, and working in his small engine repair shop.
He is predeceased by his daughter, Kelly Brown Eugatis.
Coy is survived by his loving wife of 61 years, Janet Brown; his daughter, Tracy (Chuck) Howard, and four grandchildren.

The family asks for privacy and time to grieve and reflect.
