Bill was born on July 1, 1934, at Readus, west of Edinburg, and was the son of the late William Alfred Coffman and Beulah Bowers Coffman.

He graduated from Edinburg High School in 1953 and started his banking career that same year with Riggs National Bank in Washington, DC. He returned to Woodstock in 1958 and joined the former Shenandoah County Bank & Trust Company, which was later acquired by First Virginia Banks, Inc. and is now part of the BB&T banking organization. He received various diplomas of graduation from banking schools in cooperation with the University of Virginia, Ohio State University, and The Stonier Graduate School of Banking with Rutgers University. After 33 years with First Virginia, and most of his career in Shenandoah County, Bill retired in 1991 as President and Chief Executive Officer of their member bank, First Virginia Bank – Planters serving Harrisonburg and Rockingham County. He was an active realtor for a number of years following his retirement from banking. Bill was a member of the Woodstock Presbyterian Church for more than 60 years where he was an elder and had served as Sunday school teacher, deacon, trustee, and treasurer. He was very active in the community and civic affairs and served as a former councilman and mayor of the Town of Woodstock.

He served on the Board of Directors for First Virginia Bank – Shenandoah Valley and First Virginia Bank – Planters, Shenandoah Memorial Hospital, Shenandoah County Sanitation Authority, Shenandoah Valley Travel Association, Rockingham Development Corporation and Harrisonburg/Rockingham Chamber of Commerce.
