Michael Wayne Cossey
October 18, 1952 - March 10, 2019

Michael Wayne Cossey was born October 18, 1952 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma to Curtis Dewayne Cossey and Hazel Juanita (Olive) Cossey. He departed this life suddenly on March 10, 2019 at his home in Seminole, Oklahoma at the age of 66.
Mike graduated from U.S. Grant High School in 1969 and received a scholarship to play football for the Wichita State University Shockers in
Kansas. He returned to Oklahoma after the tragic 1970 Wichita State University team plane crash. Mike later attended the University of Oklahoma and earned a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology in 1974.
Mike experienced a long
career with the United States Postal Service, beginning his tenure in 1974. He retired as the postmaster of the Wewoka, Oklahoma Post Office in 2002. Mike loved watching his son Neil play football and never missed a game. One of his favorite hobbies was cooking for his boys and hosting their friends. Mike also enjoyed fishing, dogs and spending time with his grandsons, especially watching them compete in sports. He was also an avid OU football fan.
Mike is survived by his son Neil Cossey and his wife Jaycie and their two sons Case and Cole, his step-sons Josh Rollins and Jeb Rollins and his dear friend Marilyn Mcinnis Braly. He was preceded in death by his father, Dewayne Cossey, his beloved mother, Juanita Cossey and his first wife, Cindy Cossey.
The family will have a private ceremony at Tecumseh Cemetery. The family is planning a celebration of Mike's life, at a later date, on his land in Cromwell, Oklahoma.
