Jeffrey Lee McCoin, 68 of Valparaiso, passed away peacefully at home on Saturday, December 31, 2022. He was born on November 17, 1954 in Watseka, IL to the late Omer Lee and Rose (Maxwell) McCoin. Jeff graduated from Southern Illinois University- Carbondale with a Master’s in Business Administration. He was an Insurance Agent and started his own firm, McCoin Insurance Agency, where he proudly served his community for over 21 years. He had a natural talent for connecting with people, often seen giving things away, and had old school values. Jeff was fond of fishing, golfing, and most importantly, spending time with and spoiling his granddaughter. He was a caring husband, a devoted father, and a committed friend. Best described as a giver, Jeff rarely asked for anything for himself. He will be remembered for his generosity and kind heart. He will be dearly missed.
On June 27, 1980, Jeffrey married Carol Hoffman, who survives, along with their children, Jaime (Matthew Fulgo) McCoin and Christine (Brandon) Waters; brother, Steve (Joanne) McCoin; granddaughter, Samantha Rose Waters; and many loving nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents; and sister, Lori.
There will be no services at this time. Memorial donations may be made to the Veterans of Foreign Wars in Jeffrey’s name.
Our deepest sympathies go out to all who had the privilege of having Jeff in their lives. He was my brother’s, Boyd Totten, best friend since kindergarten and remained a dear part of the Totten family even after Boyd’s passing. Jeff loved life and he will be greatly missed. -Cindy (Totten) and Augie Rojas
It is with heavy hearts that we express our condolences to Carol, Jaime and Christine. Always a familiar face at a Totten gathering, Jeff will be remembered as a dear friend with a kind heart. It was an honor to have known Jeff throughout these many years. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. With Sympathy, -Jeff and Patty Totten
