Obituary for George Paul Kolosta

George Paul Kolosta, 86, died peacefully at home in Corsicana on September 8, 2018. George was born on March 27, 1932 in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada to William and Anna Kolosta. He grew up in Toronto and worked in his father’s grocery store. He attended the University of Toronto and earned a Bachelor of Applied Science in Chemical Engineering. He married Joan Leach of Toronto and they had six children together, two in Canada and four born in Minnesota where the family relocated. From Minnesota they made a home in Corsicana beginning in 1968. George worked at US Gypsum, Koral Industries, Chattanooga Glass, Tru-Value Hardware Store, and Kohl’s Distribution Center, amongst others.
George was a devout Catholic, a proud Canadian, and member of the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church. He served in many capacities including Scripture Reader, Eucharistic Minister, Food Pantry volunteer and Knights of Columbus member. In addition to dedicating his time to his church, George loved spending time with his family. His children have wonderful memories of family summer vacations traveling around the country in a station wagon. Later he helped make wonderful memories for his grandchildren at family reunions in Surfside Beach and Canyon Lake. George was an avid reader, a collector of coffee mugs, puttered around the yard, and picked up trash from every beach he visited.
George was preceded in death by his parents, his sister Helen Boychuk, his former wife Joan Jones, his brother Joseph John Kolosta, and his grandson Alex Kolosta. He is survived by his children and their spouses: David Kolosta, Nancy (Kolosta) and Ken Myers, Darrell Kolosta and wife Edith, Danny Kolosta and wife Judy, Susan (Kolosta) and Josh Allen, and Michelle (Kolosta) and Rob Booth; his seven grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.
A rosary prayer service will be held at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church at 3000 West Hwy 22, Corsicana, TX 75110 at 10:00 AM on Wednesday, September 12, 2018. A funeral mass will follow at 10:30 AM and then a reception in the Parish Hall.
In lieu of flowers, the kids request donations be made to the James L. Collins Catholic School: https://collinscatholicschool.org/.
