December 9, 1936 ~ November 19, 2021 (age 84)


Edward (Ed) Clay Coy, 84, of Douglas, Wyoming, passed on to clearer waters in the comfort of his own home on Friday, November 19, 2021.

Ed was preceded in death by his loving wife, Carol Theresa (Burke) Coy, and is survived by his son, Mark Edward Coy. Ed was a friend to everyone he met.

Ed worked for the United States Forest Service and later the Bureau of Land Management before “retiring” to raise hay near Douglas. Ed enjoyed hunting, fishing, and the camaraderie of the outdoors. He also enjoyed sharing his knowledge and experience of the outdoor sports with anyone who expressed a desire to learn.

A special thank you to the Laramie Peak Humane Society for making sure Ed always had a furry companion. Also, very special thanks to Gorman Funeral Home and Ross Gorman for being so helpful and understanding during this difficult time.
