Famous People from Lynn County, Texas.

Bo Coleman

 

Jerry "Bo" Coleman was born July 1, 1936 to a farm couple, in Wilson, Texas in Lynn County. As a teenager, Coleman worked in the cotton fields for fifty cents an hour.

 

" I used to walk up and down those old half-mile cotton rows for 50 cents an hour when we would get our crop caught up, we would hire out. And I thought, golly ... I may move to Lubbock, Bo said in a 2012 interview with the Lubbock Avalanche Journal.

 

Coleman became well known in the Lubbock area as a radio disc jockey and personal friend of Buddy Holly, Snuff Garrett, and Waylon Jennings. He had just moved to Los Angeles, when he learned of the airplane crash which in 1959 claimed Holly's life.

 

Coleman is an alumnus of Texas Tech University and currently lives in Lubbock.
