Dennys Cooney

April 24, 1941 — October 1, 2017

Dennys Cooney passed away in Roswell, NM, Sunday, October 1, 2017 in the late afternoon hours at the age of 76.

He was preceded in death by both his parents Paul and Dorthy Cooney, his younger brother, Calvin K. Cooney and his wife, Susan Cooney.

Dennys graduated from Central Valley High school in Spokane WA in 1959. Upon graduation Dennys enlisted in the Navy where, among other adventures, he participated in the Cuban blockade.
Upon returning from the Navy, Dennys married and tried his hand at electronics and real estate. He hit his stride as a serial entrepreneur owning a tobacco business, a transmission shop Mac Allied and a tool distributor at Tool Mart which he became the owner. He also loved to boat, fish, and travel.

Dennys was generous, exceedingly bright and could be hysterically funny. He touched so many people and helped many people. Dennys loved his dogs dearly, and would take strays, and sheltered dogs in when possible. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

Dennys loved his brothers, and sisters, and worshiped at the Washington Avenue Baptist Church
