Kyle Dean Coffey was born October 27, 1938, in Hinton OK, to Melvin G. and Juanita Fern (Weathers) Coffey. He passed away Tuesday, April 26, 2022, at his home in Hinton, OK at the age of 83.
Kyle graduated from Hinton High School and was competitive and active in all sports available. He attended Southwestern State College in Weatherford where he played football and graduated with a BS degree in education in 1960. He taught and coached in the Nicoma Park Schools for a few years before returning to his farming roots in 1963 with his wife, Karen Roof Coffey whom he married June 4, 1961 in Weatherford, OK. Together they operated a dairy farm while building a successful farming operation in support of his interest in the breeding and training of horses and raising cattle.
He became a decorated member of the American Quarter Horse Association for the exceptional quality of his horses which were sought after by ranch users, cutting horse show enthusiasts and in show horse ranch performance arenas as were his cattle in the sale ring. His work and his play were inseparable. Kyle continued ranching and farming until late 2019 when declining health forced him to retire.
Kyle was a member of the Hinton Church of Christ, The American Quarter Horse Association, and a past member, participant, and judge in PRCA rodeos, Oklahoma Ranch Rodeo Association and the Old Timers Ranch Rodeo Association.
