Obituary

Andre Coleman, 53, of Port Ewen, NY and previously of Manhattan, NYC passed away on July 16, 2022. He was born on October 25, 1968, in Hudson, NY to Kenneth Broadhead and Loretta Coleman. Andre received his associates/bachelors from Johnson & Wales University in Miami, Fl. Andre was a Disabled Military Veteran serving in the United States Air Force with 12 years of Active-Duty Service. He received an Honorable Discharge. He was a member of the VFW in Kingston, NY and any party clubs on earth. He was a Protestant Christian and was baptized at Faith Assembly of God as a teenager.  Andre enjoyed his time in the Military with his brother Paul at his side, which influenced other brothers and a host of cousins and friends to

join military service. He enjoyed bonding with his Veteran friends, enjoyed cooking as an accomplished Chef, and had a passion for organizing and attending family functions, reunions, and cookouts. Andre also enjoyed traveling, dancing, and was an accomplished practical jokester. His greatest joy was when he became a father to his only daughter Brianna whom he loved and held dear in his heart so very much. He enjoyed spending time with his close family and friends in Kingston and Poughkeepsie NY, and his extended family and friends in many States throughout the U.S. One of his great interests was to call anyone, at any time (Usually 3am), which could last anywhere from 3-10 hours.... minimum. Finally, Andre’s special bond was with his mother Loretta and stepfather Herbie, and longtime friendship with Devendra Ruparelia, Michael Gates, Julian Crayton, and Anita Brooks.

  Survivors include his mother (Loretta Martin), stepfather (Herbert Martin) daughter (Brianna Stuart) brothers (Paul Broadhead, Herbert Martin Jr, Issaac Martin, Terrance Martin, and Keenon Martin) sisters (Paula Broadhead, Kim Robinson, and Coranda Martin) close friends Devendra “DEV” Ruparelia, Michael Gates, Julian Crayton, and Anita Brooks and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends. Kenneth Broadhead (father) predeceased Andre.
