Obituary for George D. Coltman

George Delbert Coltman of Grand Ledge, Michigan was called home to be with our Lord and Savior on December 1, 2017. He was born December 23, 1940 in Wayne County, Michigan.

He was preceded in death by his loving wife, Joyce, his parents, George Coltman and Lavona and Charles Zebarah, and sister, Carole Christensen.

He is survived by his three children: Kevin (Toni) Coltman, Kim (John) Balwierczak, and Kyle (Tara) Coltman; five siblings: Chuck (Linda) Zebarah, Terri (Paul) Swihart, Rande (Donna) Zebarah, Pam (Randy) Beach, and Ken (Chris) Zebarah, brother-in-law Bill Christensen, nine grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, 19 nieces and nephews, 65 great-nieces and nephews, and many dear friends.

George proudly served in the U.S. Navy from 1959 until 1963. He married Joyce in 1964. They moved to San Diego where they raised their three children. In 1993 they moved to New Port Richey, Florida. George and Joyce loved spending time together out on the ocean in their boat. In 2008 they moved to Walkertown, North Carolina. George was an avid golfer and loved spending time with his family and friends. His outgoing personality and charm made George a hit with everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him.
