Coy was born in Stigler, Oklahoma on September 7, 1946 to Omar and Rachel (Faries) Mullens. Shortly after his birth, Coy and his family moved to Vinson, Oklahoma where he grew up and attended school before graduating from Hollis High School in 1965. While in school, Coy played basketball and loved racing and working on cars. In April of 1966, Coy joined the United States Army where he was rewarded a Purple Heart, while serving as a sniper during the Vietnam War.

Coy worked as a ginner in Oklahoma and Texas before going to work for the Oklahoma Highway Department in 1983, where he worked for twenty five years before his retirement. In his free time, Coy enjoyed trading guns, driving around with his dog â€œBaby Girlâ€ and most of all he loved spending time with his grandchildren, family and friends.
