We are saddened to learn of the passing of Dr. David Coulson, FHG 229, on December 29, 2022 at the age of 91. David was a graduate of Queen’s University, where he received his medical degree in 1955, and he joined the Guard in 1953.
During a long and distinguished career, David practiced medicine in several cities, including Thunder Bay, St. Anthony NL, and Musquodoboit Harbour NS. He was an active member of the Canadian Naval Reserve, and was the Commanding Officer of HMCS Griffon, the first Medical Officer to hold that honour.
Donations in David’s memory may be made to The St. John’s (Portsmouth) Anglican Church Food Bank in Kingston, the Thunder Bay Food Bank or to the charity of your choice.
We extend our sincere condolences to David’s wife Beverley, his daughters Anne, Mary and Susan, son-in-law Frank Edgson, step-children Rosemary and George, and to his many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
