Gary Coulter


This past weekend Colorado lost an Aviation legend on Sunday 12/15/13.  Gary was Airport Manager at Meeker (Coulter Field) Airport for over 54 years.  Gary had passion for Aviation and was truly generous with his knowledge and expertise.  CAOA would like to send our condolences to the Coulter Family and celebrate his remarkable life and contribution to the Colorado Aviation Community.  Gary's daughter Samantha Coulter Lopez has been assisting her Dad in managing projects at Coulter Field for over 10 years and will continue to operate the Airport along with her brother Lanny Coulter who has worked with Dad for over 30 years in the family business, Coulter Aviation.  During Gary's 54 years of operating the Airport he has built his business in Agricultural Spraying, Maintenance, FBO and Charter services.    Thank you Coulter Family for your support of Colorado Airports.
