Dr. Allan George Schoen, 74, of Coldwater, MS passed away Saturday, May 28, 2022 at Region One Medical Center. He is survived by his wife, Sherry Callicott Schoen; daughter, Ava Schoen; sister-in-law, Tommye Humphries (Mark) and nephew, Zackary Humphries (Daniel).
 
Dr. and Mrs. Schoen founded Coldwater Vision Center in 1975. The clinic building was named for him in 2012, and he retired in 2014. He was a faculty member at Southern College of Optometry from 1973 to 2013, where he was a professor in the Pediatrics department and lectured in Ophthalmic Optics. During his career, he volunteered his time at the Shrine School for children with special needs in Memphis, TN.
"Doc" was known for his hunting stories, memorable quotes (the best life advice you could find anywhere), and sense of humor. He was a legendary clinician and teacher who inspired his students and fellow doctors to strive for exceptional patient care. He will be greatly missed!
