George Couturier, age 88, entered into eternal rest Monday, April 13, 2020 at the Lutheran Home of Southbury. He is survived by his loving wife Marlene, her children and their spouses, his daughter Kathleen of Tucson, Arizona, nine grandchildren and one great grandchild. Marlene and George were married for 44 years and resided for many years in Danbury and Newtown and most recently Southbury. George was predeceased by his first wife, Mary Elizabeth (Betty) and his son, Mark. George was born November 19, 1931 in the Bronx, a son of German immigrants. He enlisted in the United States Air Force and served in the Korean War. After the war he went on to get a degree in Mechanical Engineering from North Carolina State University before moving to Connecticut. He loved boating on Lake Candlewood and attending karate classes. He was quick with a smile, and loved reflecting on his time as a scout master. He was a 50 year member of the Masonic Lodge #40 Danbury, CT. We thank the Lutheran Home of Southbury for the excellent care they gave him during his long illness. Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic a private funeral will take place at the convenience of the family. Arrangements are being handled by Munson-Lovetere Funeral Home. Donations in George’s memory may be made to The Lutheran Home of Southbury, 990 Main Street North, Southbury, CT 06488.
