Vernon E. Coulthard, 79, passed away on August 8, 2019, at Taylor House in Des Moines. He was born in Council Bluffs, Iowa on August 12, 1939, to Cecil and Dessie Coulthard.

Vernon proudly served in the United States Navy. He worked at Firestone for 33 years until his retirement.

He was a wonderful husband and the greatest father, not only to his biological children. Vernon exemplified love and commitment.

Vernon is survived by his loving wife of 58 years, Diana; children, Brent (Jenney) Coulthard, Lisa (Timothy) Leon, and Beth (Mark) Luke; grandchildren, Madison, Courtney, Meredith and Ian; great-grandson, Eli; many nieces, nephews, relative and friends.
