Coleman was married, but his wife died 22 years ago, after he had fallen asleep at the wheel of his car. He had never seen another woman until he meet Councillor Alison Hemmings. They went out to dinner together and ballroom dancing, as well as bowling.
While out bowling with Alison, it reminded him or his ex-wife and he left without warning. Once Alison had caught up with him, Coleman revealed the truth of what happened to his wife.
