Stanley “Dick” Coulson

The Dalles, Oregon

September 18, 1945 - February 17, 2018

Stanley “Dick” Coulson, will be missed greatly by people near and far who he has impacted or helped over his 72 years. Dick was always willing to help those in need and he had an impact on so many people in our community. Dick loved to play golf, pool, and fanasty football with his family. He holds the eight-time fanasty football champion title and would like to rub that in one more time.

After winning these games, and only winning, he would relax at home with his wife and his loyal champanion, Mocha. Dick was a husband, father, brother, papa and coach, and friend to many. Dick is survived by his best friend, lover and wife, Coya Coulson; children, Karla, Kelli, Sean, Casey, Sarah, Calvin and Celsi and many others who called him papa; 15 grandchildren; three great-grandsons; brother Don Coulson; brother-in-laws Charles and Roni Millsap; sister-in-laws Cari and Tim Harper; many neices; nephews; children and families from the community and Mooseheart, Ill. He was passionate about coaching and has mentoered more then 4500 youth through his many volunteer services.

He was an active Moose member for more then 15 years, a United States Army veteran and a member of the America Legion. He was retired from Verizon.

If you would like to donate in his honor you may send donations in his name to the Moosehart and Moosehaven.

Services for Dick will be held at a later date and relayedthrough family. Dick would want sunshine, family-time and laughter.

Visit to leave a note of condolence for the family.

I am so sorry for your loss. I'm thinking of you all, as are my kids, who loved Dick. Not only did we get to know him through the Theatre Company, he coached Rebekah in Softball and we loved him. He will be missed.

Thinking of you all, Debbie Wentz Cantrell
