George Coulson, age 92, of Solstice Senior Living in Guilford, formerly of Waterbury, passed away peacefully on Aug. 4 surrounded by the love and comfort of his family after an extended illness. He was the widower of Martha (Morris) Coulson.
George was born Oct. 23, 1926, in Mahonoy City, Pennsylvania, the son of the late Joseph and Cora (Pennypacker) Coulson. He was raised and educated in Pennsylvania, proudly served his country with the US Navy during World War II, and spent many years as a carpenter and locksmith for Eyelet Specialty of Waterbury, before his retirement. George was an avid stamp collector, served as secretary for the Waterbury Stamp Club, and was a proud member of the American Philatelic Society. He was also an active volunteer at the West Haven VA Hospital, where he served as a member of the Institutional Review Board.
Left to remember, cherish, and honor George’s love and memory is his daughter Cora Coulson-Metcalf and her husband John Metcalf of Guilford; his grandchildren Christopher Piedescalzo and his wife Jennifer, and Amber Bialczak and her husband Bobby; as well as his three great-grandchildren Grant, Gavin, and Tegan Bialczak. He was predeceased by his brother and nephew Joseph and Joey Coulson.
The Coulson family would like to thank and acknowledge the staff and caretakers at Branford Hospice for the wonderful, loving care and support they provided to George and his family during his illness.
