Graham Coulter (1961F)

Graham was a good-natured and stylish fellow.

Sometimes it takes time for us to gather enough information to post an obituary.  Thanks to numerous emails and attempts by Dr. Murray to contact the family, we were finally able to mark the passing of Graham.

Graham Frederick Hippisley Coulter (Order of St John) was in Founders House from 1958 – 1961 sadly died after a long illness at Warwick in England in 2021.  He was the second son of Thomas H. Coulter OBE, GCStJ., at Bishops from 1928 – 1930. 

At School, Graham was a Corporal in the Cadet Corps.  After leaving school, Graham read Law at UCT.  He was with Reckitt & Coleman for a number of years before starting his own business in Claremont.  He retired to Hermanus and then England.  According to a school friend,

‘Graham was a good-natured and stylish fellow, not perhaps ideal for high corporate office but fun to be with, a jovial and larger-than-life personality’.

The photograph is of Graham and his first wife, Di, who after their divorce moved permanently to Australia with her two children, a boy and a girl.  Later, he married Martine and moved to England where they remained.

We extend our condolences to Martine and his children and family.
