Jerry E. Cooney of Park City passed peacefully surrounded by family on July 11, 2019. Jerry was born August 5, 1946 in Billings, MT to Mae and Clark Cooney. One of nine children, Jerry went to school in Joliet, graduating in 1965. Jerry was drafted shortly after into the Navy as a Seabee and served in Vietnam. He then deployed to Antarctica in 1967 and was honorably discharged in 1968. Jerry started working for MDU following his service and married his long-time love, Lori Schmidt May 17, 1969. Together, in their 50 years, they had two children, Tami and Todd, and six grandchildren, who were the light of his life.

Our condolences to the Cooney family. I have memories of Jerry and I, in our younger years, of many good times hunting elk in Robinson draw, staying in the wall tent with Roger. Enjoyed seeing his beautiful red, Ford 3/4 ton pickup around town. Following the grandkids in sports in our later years together - could always count on Jerry being at the events. God Bless. Jack and Lynn Tuell
