It’s with heavy hearts that the family announces the passing of Dan Cooley on March 22nd, 2016 after a short courageous battle with cancer. Born February 26th, 1966, Dan was a kind hearted, devoted, caring person with a great sense of humour. His greatest love was his family, especially his wife of 22 years Jody (Smith) and his three children Ryan (Haily), Loralai, and Braden. Beloved son of David Cooley (predeceased 2003) and Eleanor (MacPherson). Loving brother of Wendy (Wade Ostrowalker), Brian (Nathalie), Angela (Greg Lively) all of Chelmsford, Jodie (Craig Hannon) of Hanmer and Kari-Ann (Jeff Lamoureux) of Azilda. Predeceased by his sister Brenda (1962). Son-in-law to John and Kathy Smith of Dowling and brother-in-law to Gerald (Lynda) Landers of Barrie, Timmy Smith of Timmins, George Smith, Jolie (Danny) Gregoire and John Smith all of Dowling. He was a fun loving uncle and great uncle to many nieces and nephews and will be sadly missed by aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Dan worked for Glencore and coached the Onaping Huskies Hockey. During his spare time, he enjoyed a nice cold beer and a good laugh. A celebration of Dan’s life will be held Saturday, March 26, 2016 from 3 to 6 p.m. at the Forest Ridge Golf Club, 3525 Forest Ridge Rd, Chelmsford. Donations to Jody Cooley are greatly appreciated. Funeral arrangements entrusted to the COOPERATIVE FUNERAL HOME, Chelmsford.
