Obituary of Tom Coultis
Allen Thomas "Tom" Coultis
(September 21, 1930 - December 3, 2022)
Allen Thomas (Tom) Coultis of Camrose, formerly of Stettler, passed away on Saturday, Dec 3rd, at the age of 92 years. He was born September 21, 1930, in Trochu, AB, and raised in the Stettler area.
He was predeceased by his parents Thomas and Wilhelmina Coultis; wife Violet Coultis; sister Melvina Callies; and brother Stanley Coultis. Left to cherish his memory are two daughters Brenda Tarr of Calgary and Marlene Coultis of Camrose; two granddaughters Janelle (Scott) Turner of Cochrane, and Jacinda (Caley) Taylor of Stony Plain; and two great-grandsons Nashua and Oscar Turner.
In his younger years, he enjoyed gardening, hunting, fishing, camping, saskatoon berry picking, gospel music, dancing to the tunes of Ruby Keehn, bowling, and playing canasta. After retirement, Tom and Vi were regulars at the Duggan Mall Farmers Market where they thoroughly enjoyed the Old Time Music each Saturday.
Tom will be remembered for his firm and authoritative handshake, and his unwavering commitment to law and order, justice and equality – for his Country, his City, the Legion, and his family. Tom was caring and thoughtful, a dog-lover, a great storyteller, and always enjoyed a good visit. Tom will remain in the hearts and memories of his family and the many people he met throughout his lifetime.
A Funeral Service was held at 11:00 a.m. Monday, December 12, 2022, at CityLights Church, 4920 48 Street Camrose with Rev. Mary Ann Pastuck officiating.
