June 4, 1938 ~ June 29, 2019

Born in: Denver, Colorado
Resided in: Denver, Colorado

George Francis Coughlin passed away on June 29, 2019 in Denver, CO. He was 81 years old.

George was born to Walter James and Helen Coughlin in 1938. A Denver native and lifelong Colorado resident, he graduated from Regis Jesuit High School and Regis College. In 1964, he married Milli Wankum and together they raised two children, Marypat and Peggy.

George devoted his career to the family Finance and Municipal Bond business, Coughlin & Company, founded in 1932 by his father and uncle. George’s career at Coughlin & Company lasted more than 40 years. Coughlin & Company remains family-owned and operated.

Though George loved his work, he loved his family more. He always said, “What’s the most important thing in the world? Family!” George meant it, and he lived it. He was a devoted husband to Milli and father to Marypat, Peggy and their families. His greatest heartache was the death of Marypat in 2013.

George was preceded in death by his father, mother, and daughter Marypat. He is survived by his wife, Milli; his daughter Peggy (Chris) Walling; son-in-law Ed Farrell; grandchildren Israel, Lillian, Dante, Elena, Anna, Caitlin, Matthew; brother James Coughlin; sister Mary Louise Cusack; their families and dozens of extended family and friends.

Memories Timeline

Guestbook

  1. My sincere condolences for your loss.

    Please know that God understands how you feel and he deeply cares about you (1Peter 5:7), and fully understands what you’re going through. Especially the pain and grief we experience when someone we love falls asleep in death. God’s word encourages all to throw all of our anxiety on Him because he cares for you.
    You can trust him with your innermost feelings, Pray to Almighty God for comfort and he will sustain you.

    My deepest Sympathy.

  2. It is with great sadness that a great man is no longer with us in body, but it is with great joy that he is with us always in spirit as he ascends to heaven with Jesus and loved ones. I was blessed to have him as my godfather and know his support and love for me as his godson. He was a gentle soul. Many memories he shared with parents and especially my father from their youth to his calling home. May god bless and keep Milli, his children, grandchildren, extended family, and friends as they mourn and miss their beloved George… husband, father, brother, and friend. Welcome home George!

    With love,

  3. Our deepest sympathy to the family.

    As a kid, I can remember George and my dad laughing and telling jokes at the potluck dinners.

    George always had a smile and a hug for you. So many wonderful memories of a wonderful person who loved his family as you could see it in his eyes and smile.

    “Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.”
    Love you, Carol & Sharon,

  4. My sister tipped me off about George’s death. I knew George when I was in the municipal bond business some 50 years ago. He was an exemplar of the old school municipal underwriter/trader and very much a gentle man.

  5. Dear Milli, I just now learned of George’s passing. My heart is heavy. George is a good, wonderful man. Please know that you are in my prayers. Dawn Mueller
