Obituary of Michael Robert Cummins Coulson

November 29, 1935 - Gloucester, Gloucestershire, England

November 18, 2022 - Calgary, Alberta


Michael, the much-loved husband of Marie, and only child of Anne and Bob Coulson, passed away on Friday, November 18, 2022 at the age of 87 years.


Mike was father to Rosilyn (Dennis) Teng, Kate (Urs) Daellenbach, Jennifer (Carlos) Acevedo, and Julia (Michael) Jordison; and grandfather to Samuel, Cristina, Isabel, Lucia, Sebastian, Joshua, Sophia, and Elyse. He was blessed with a large circle of colleagues, extended family, friends, and neighbours, whom he held dear.


Mike was a busy guy and made a difference to so many, as a Professor at the University of Calgary, Director at Foothills Creative Beginnings, a Volunteer and Camp Director at Camp Quality, a stalwart part of the Calgary Renaissance Singers, and an Elder in the Community of Christ church.
