Thomas Paul Cooley, 89, passed away in Apache Junction, Arizona on October 28, 2004. Paul was born in Pauls Valley, Oklahoma on October 11, 1915. Before moving to Apache Junction 10 years ago, he had lived and worked in Oklahoma all his life. Paul retired from the U.S. Postal Service in 1972. He served honorably in the U.S. Army Air Corps in World War II in Burma and India. Paul was an avid, talented golfer who loved the sport dearly and taught many others to play. Paul was preceded in death by his first wife, Mildred. Paul is survived by his loving wife, Patricia, of the home; daughter Nancy Ann Henry and husband Don, of Owasso, Oklahoma; step-daughter Rosie Davis and husband Bill, of Apache Junction; and several grandchildren. We will miss Paul greatly. A memorial service will be scheduled at a later date in Oklahoma City.
