Brian Paul Coates was the fifth-born child to Harry Edward Coates, Sr. and Cuba Jean Coates (Green) on July 17, 1956 in Seminole, Oklahoma. Brian had seven siblings and enjoyed telling stories about his rural and adventurous childhood. He grew up wrangling Shetland ponies and pulling pranks on his loving siblings. His nickname as a child was “Smiley Briney” because he was always happy. Brian graduated from Strother High School in 1974 and began pursuing his college education while also working for his father’s roofing company, attending classes at Seminole Junior College, Oklahoma State University and Central State University. Brian founded Coates Roofing Company in 1985 after working on the Sante Fe Railroad as a switchman. He then met his wife, Rhonda, at Baptist Temple Church in Oklahoma City where they were married on New Year’s Day in 1988. In 1990, they moved to land neighboring his childhood family homestead where they raised four children, Dalton, Amelia, Reagan, and Abigail, in a similar fashion to Brian’s upbringing.
