— Jerry Ray Cotter was born in Chickasha to Vernon L. and May Frances Cotter. He is survived by his sister, Verna May Story; brother, Ron Cotter; Children: Breck R. Cotter, Diana L. Pearson, and Sandra G. Roberts;  Grandchildren: William and Roxana Murray; Cheyenne, Justin and Micah Pearson; and Ava Cotter; Great Grandchildren, William and Brice Murray and Carter Pearson.  

He was a member of the Chickasha High School Class of 1954 - Jerry never missed a high school reunion.

After he retired from AT&T (Western Electric), Jerry owned and managed several rental properties and was once part owner of the well known Chastains nightclub. His favorite past-times were casino slots, watching football, thrift store shopping, fishing, and he loved the dessert bar at the local Golden Corral.  

Daddy, thank you for all you have taught and given us throughout our lives. WE LOVE YOU!  There will not be a funeral service. A contribution to the American Diabetes Association in lieu of flowers would be a lovely way to honor Jerry.
