Reginald Barry ‘Gramps’ Coulter

September 21, 1939 – February 11, 2021
Reginald Barry Coulter (Gramps) died peacefully at home in Ladysmith on February 11, 2021 in Ladysmith, BC at the age of 81. Reg is survived by his daughter, Jody Coulter (Duane), grandsons Ryan and Greg Olson, and son Justin Norton.
Reg was born on Sept 21,1939 in Star City, Saskatchewan to Reg and Hilda Coulter (Anderson). He joined the Navy at age 17. During that time, he was part of the Commissioning crew of the submarines HMCS Grilse and HMCS Rainbow. He proudly served in the Navy for 30 years and retired as a PO2.
He loved his family, his brothers David and Bob Coulter as well as his two sisters Maxine Coulter and Carol Schuetz. He had many nieces and nephews who meant the world to him.
He was big hearted, and the door was always open to anyone needing a place to stay. You could often find Reg riding around town on his scooter, usually on his way for his daily Timmy’s visit.
The family would like to thank Dr Kennedy for taking care of Dad for many years. Jim Brown for all his help over the years, and Doug Olson who was like a son to him.
Due to COVID a memorial will be held later. Condolences can be sent to
