Frank L. Coulson Jr., a legend in the selling of bonds at Goldman Sachs since 1974, died Nov. 22.

"Frank's loss will be felt by generations of Goldman Sachs professionals," Lloyd C. Blankfein, chairman and CEO of Goldman Sachs, told the Philadelphia Daily News, near where Coulson lived.

The Wharton graduate “was a source of both inspiration and wise counsel who led by example,’’ said Blankfein. “One of Frank's greatest strengths was that he always ran to the toughest challenges.’’

The memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday.
