 Gerald Thomas Cheek, 76, passed away December 23, 2009. He was born November 22, 1933 in Oklahoma City, OK to Tellus Thomas and Onita Cheek.

He is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Merry; brothers, Gary and Brinton Cheek; his children: Don "Tiger," Toney, Todd, Steve Cheek and Temi (Cheek) Blackwell; nine grandchildren: Tyler, Nikkie, Terrance, Terra, Morgan, Zach, Austin, Josh, Brandie.

Gerald graduated from MWCHS in 1951 and went to Tulsa University before enlisting in the Army. He then graduated from Central State University. He coached high school football at Alamogordo, N.M.; Shawnee; Hominy; Harrah; Tecumseh; Crooked Oak; Pomona Catholic, CA; Garden Grove HS, CA; and Palm Springs HS, CA. College football coaching at University of Washington, Oregon State University and University of Utah, as well as Professional football at Calgary, Alberta, Canada, rounded out his career. Gerald was a man who left his winning legacy with countless numbers of football players and coaches alike. He was a great athlete, not only in football, but track and golf, where he also set records. He knew so many people that, when visiting places he had never been, would run across someone who knew him. He will be missed by a loving family and many, many friends.

Funeral services were held at Bill Eisenhour N.E. Funeral Home at 10:00 a.m., Saturday, December 26, 2009; burial followed at Arlington Memory Gardens in Midwest City, OK.
