Patrick David Schulte Coffin, 35, of Grand Rapids, succumbed to his addictions and depression on Sunday, May 17, 2020, and left his life here with us. Patrick was born in the middle of a blizzard on January 21, 1985. Although he battled rough storms during his adult life, he brought great joy to his family with his infectious smile and acts of kindness to all that he encountered. He had many great accomplishments, his greatest being his beautiful daughter, Leland Augusta Grace Coffin.

Patrick was a talented musician, self-taught on the piano and trained on the tuba. He traveled to Europe with the Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp and was a member of the Grand Rapids Youth Symphony early in his life. He also occasionally played with the World Famous Scottville Clown Band, wearing an outfit that had been worn by his Great Uncle, Ray Schulte. After graduating from East Kentwood High School in 2003, he started a successful rental management business with his childhood friend Ryan Vandermeer and later launched a real estate business. Patrick cherished trips to Leland, Michigan, many with his sister and mother. He especially loved when his mother cooked German food for him. He enjoyed hunting, fishing and camping trips with his father.

Patrick was proceeded in death by his maternal grandparents, Jim and Frances Lederle Schulte and his fraternal grandfather, Donald Coffin.

Patrick is survived by his daughter Leland, his mother Francine Schulte Coffin, his father Robert Coffin (Kathi), his sister Jamie Coffin Callis (Nick), his fraternal grandmother Charlene Coffin, along with dozens of aunts, uncles and cousins.

Patrick will be cremated and a memorial will take place later in the summer.

First of all I want to say truly my heartfelt condolences go out to him and his family. He gave me an opportunity when I had NOTHING! He allowed me to live in my home as a 1st renter which eventually started my family. My wife and I began our journey with Urban Pharm. I truly appreciate his patience and his kind demeanor. You will be missed my friend.

Patrick had a kind gentle soul that made everyone smile. Once he let his guard down and let people in the true patrick would shine. Always helping others with a kind word or help with a problem. I had the pleasure of knowing Patrick toward the end and am saddened at his loss but know his battle is won and he no longer fights the demons of addiction, and is pain free is heaven ! Rest in peace.
