Daterrius Andre Coleman, known to everyone as Dee, passed away at the young age of 19 years old on December 26, 2022.
Dee was born in West Helena, Arkansas on March 23, 2003 to Arthur Coleman and Latricia Nelson. When Dee was 4 years old, he and his dad moved to Wausau, Wisconsin where he grew up. Dee was a part of the D. C. Everest football team and transitioned to Wausau West football team. Dee enjoyed playing football, working out in the school gym, sidewalks and parking lots or anywhere. He loved being around his 300+ friends which he considered his family. Whether it was hanging around a bon fire, laying on the hood of cars watching the stars, deep talks, playing video games, going up north to friends cabins, or fishing on the lakes and rivers of Wisconsin and watching sunsets, Dee always brought laughter wherever he went. He had a contagious smile and the funniest, genuine laughter. He was charming and charismatic with his goofball sense of humor. He wouldn't allow anyone to be bullied. He loved to dance anywhere. He loved home cooked meals and cookouts with his family and friends. He loved picking up his little brother and his multiple little cousins, nieces, and newphews. Dee had a huge heart for everyone in his family to include his father, mother, Granny, Grandma, Grandpa, aunts, uncles, step brothers, step sister, and
big and little cousins with everyone's significant other. Dee had an infectious spirit about him that will be a huge loss to so many.
Dee's Celebration of Life will be catered by Lee's Chicken at Weston Lanes in Schofield, WI in the Mountain Bay Hall on Thursday, January 19, 2023 from 12:00pm to 3:00pm. Everyone who knew Dee is welcomed to come.
Dee's wake will be held Friday, January 20, 2023 from 5:00pm to 7:00pm at Brown's Home for Funerals in Helena, Arkansas. His funeral will be held on Saturday, January 21, 2023 at 2:00pm.
Dee taught us all something...
Daddy says he loves you Dee and you're always #1.
