Paul V. Cooney

Paul V. Cooney Jr.

Paul V. Cooney Jr. passed away peacefully on July 17, 2013. He “leapt” into this life on February 29, 1928 in Philadelphia, PA. Paul attended Villanova University, enlisted into the Navy, and then returned to complete his degree in Business/Marketing

In 1951, he married his one love Edna M. Hanlon. He is survived by Edna, their seven children and spouses; Pat, Maureen, Mike, Larry, Joanne, Caroline and Joe, their 13 grandchildren,4 great-grandchildren and his brother John.

Paul had a long successful career in the grocery sales field. First with Scott Paper Co. (20 yrs.) and then founded Cooney Sales Co., a Bellevue based food brokerage in 1975. He retired in 1991. Paul was well known in the trade for being honorable, humorous and enthusiastic

At work, just like in his family life, he paid attention to detail, was well organized and always worked at doing the “right thing”. After his career Paul volunteered at several NW charities that mattered to him. He left this life with no regrets but with a lot of fond memories. His passions were many that included; travel, education, sports and good Italian food.

As a couple, they were always strong members of their parish (Sacred Heart) and had a strong faith. Paul measured his success not in material possession but rather the many strong relationships with family, friends and co-workers. He lived the “good life” and had a great life.

Funeral arrangements will be made at Sacred Heart (Bellevue). Funeral service will be held on Friday, August 9, 2013 at 11 AM @ Sacred Heart Church (Bellevue).

In lieu of flowers the family suggests a donation to Hospice, checks can be mailed to; Evergreen Foundation, 12040 NE 128th St MS 5, Kirkland, WA 98034-3098
