Allan Thomas Coulter
Born in Dusseldorf, Germany to Stanley Allen and Anna Franziska Coulter, Allan was happily married and totally devoted to Helen for 62 years until her death in May 2014. After graduating from DePauw University, Allan was a foreign language instructor in the US Army Intelligence Corp. Later he entered the private sector where he worked in financial services and then 25+ enjoyable years as a Manufacturers’ Rep for Nutone-Scovill.
Allan was an avid member of the White Rock Boat Club and could be seen on the lake most Sundays racing his sailboat, usually with one of his children as crew. He thoroughly enjoyed outdoor activities including sailing, boating, camping, traveling, and riding his motorcycle. Allan had the good fortune to retire at 55 years young and spent the better part of 25 years traveling with Helen to many parts of the world. They particularly enjoyed camping in the National and State Parks of our beautiful country.
His church family at King of Glory Lutheran Church in Dallas and Christ Lutheran in Georgetown were always an important part of his life. In addition, he was blessed with many great friends in the Sun City Georgetown community, and friends in the Lake Highlands area where he raised his family.
Allan is survived by his three children and their spouses: Jim and Donna Coulter, Leslie and Gary Henkel, Mike and Barb Coulter; his four grandchildren: Jeff, Brad, Kirsty, Calum; great grandchild, Weston; and his niece, Patty and Gary Kunkle.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to a charity of your choice. Allan was particularly passionate about organizations that helped children, provided medical research, or supported members of the US military and Veterans.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, November 5th at 1:00pm in the Activity Center at King of Glory Lutheran Church, 6411 LBJ Freeway, Dallas.
