Myron (Mike) Perry Isaac Cohen passed away peacefully at Cleburne County Nursing Home on January 8, 2019 after a ten-plus year valiant battle with Parkinson’s Disease.

Born in Los Angeles, California on January 3, 1945, Mike served in the Army Reserves and worked for over 20 years at CNN. Mike is predeceased by his parents, Jack Allen and Rose Eve Cohen.

He is survived by his wife of 49 years LaDonna Cohen, his daughter Leslie Bielanski (and husband Brian Bielanski), his son, Matthew, his grandchildren Alexandra Bielanski and Asher Skye Cohen, his niece Dr. Deborah Dillon Grant (and husband Col. Scott Grant), his nephew Mark Dillion, and his great nephews Robert (and wife Rebecca) and Tyler Grant.

He is also survived by his sister, Rena Davis (and husband Stuart Davis), his niece Anna and Elizabeth, and his nephew Rabbi Alexander.

Mike will be remembered by his love of golf, Elvis and golden oldies, gardening, and watching all sports and old movies, but mostly his wife and family. He will also be remembered by the mentorship he provided through Gamblers’ Anonymous for over 50 years.

In lieu of flowers or other acts of condolences, the family requests that donations be made to the Michel J. Fox Foundation (https://www.michaeljfox.org).

I will never forget the time Mike got passes for my husband and me to watch an Atlanta Braves game from the same room where Ted Turner would sit! It was quite an awesome place, and Mike's humor and generosity made it so much fun! Thank you, Mike, for sharing such a memorable part of your life with us! We never forgot it or you! Heaven is blessed to have you! Be happy, friend! ❤
