Percy Newbold "Peter" Coe (1919 – 9 August 2008) was the father and athletics coach to Sebastian Coe. Coe was born Percy Newbold Coe in Kingston, Surrey, the eldest child of Violet (née Newbold) and Percy Coe Sr (1893–1974). Coe had a younger brother, Peter, who died in infancy in 1928, and took on his brother's first name as a dedication to him. As an engineer, Coe found athletics coaching offered to his son 'all tales, nothing seemed coherent', and was determined to apply his expertise to this field systematically. Coe's second wife, and mother of four of his five children, Tina Angela Coe (née Lal), died in Hammersmith and Fulham, London, in 2005, aged 75. Peter Coe died aged 88.
