An early and ardent supporter of CODA, Eli is beloved for his dedication, humanity and many years of service. CODA founder Millie Brother says "Eli was a man who tread lightly upon all parts of the earth, yet left indelible marks." Ron Coffey lived with AIDS for more than nine years and died at the age of 33 on June 27, 1994. Ron was an extremely competent and highly-respected American Sign Language interpreter.
