Stanley Cooper Wiseman Obituary
(Stanley) Cooper Wiseman (Stanley) Cooper Wiseman was born on Christmas Day in 1968 at 'the old Seton' here in Austin, Texas. As a child, he lived with his mother, Arra Louise Sawyer, and her parents, Stanley and Ruth Sawyer, on San Gabriel St., where he and his younger brother, Steven Matthew Wiseman, enjoyed Pease Park as their playground, while their father, Frank Allen Wiseman was away at war. They moved to Stratford Drive, when it was 'out in the country' and later moved to Robert E. Lee Rd, with Zilker Park as their backyard. He attended O. Henry Middle School, Austin High, and was the third generation of his family to graduate from the University of Texas at Austin, where he was a member of the Delta Upsilon Fraternity. He worked for a local, handmade tile company in South Austin for 15 years, first riding his longhorn-handled cruiser there from his home on Johanna St., then along the hike and bike trail from his home in Clarksville, until he bought his home on The East Side in 2001 and rode his prized Firemans Texas Cruzer through the city to work each day. He was devoted to his dogs, Cubby and Chaya, and their daily walks through the Boggy Creek Greenbelt. From 1997 to 2002, he wrote the dAilY WoRD, a (pre)twitter-esque nugget of insight distributed via email to an ever-widening circle of loyal followers. He met Tisha Lea Van Matre in 1999 and they were married on Easter Sunday, 2003, on 'Town Lake', near Fiesta Gardens. Their daughter, Liberty Pearl, was born in 2007. He was diagnosed with Stage IV colon cancer on Father's Day, 2010. He fought it valiantly, until he passed away peacefully at his home last Friday, December 21, 2012. He was both a unique product of, and treasured gift to, this great city and the many lives he touched along the way. A memorial service will be held at 2:00 pm on Thursday, December 27th at Mt. Calvary Baptist Church on Washington Ave (78702), celebration to follow at the Longbranch Inn, 5:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, please consider sending donations to Wonders & Worries (wondersandworries.org) or contributing to their daughter's college fund: Liberty Pearl Wiseman PO Box 684682, Austin TX 78768
