Cooper, Theodore Cleveland "Ted"  
THEODORE "TED" CLEVELAND COOPER On February 19, 2015 Ted passed away in his sleep at home after a long bout with Parkinson's. He was born in Eureka on February 21, 1943 to Ruby and Clarence Cooper. Ted is survived by his brothers Clarence and David, four nephews and several cousins. He was predeceased by his parents, numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins. Ted graduated from Eureka High School. He took auto shop classes and enjoyed working on cars. He joined the Navy and was stationed in Guam. After the Navy, Ted began working on the docks around Humboldt Bay as a Longshoreman. Ted was employed by the Pacific Maritime Association International Longshore & Warehouse Union. He retired as a crane operator. Ted was always looking for adventures. He bought a Harley Davidson motorcycle in the 1960's and began racing it at the Samoa Drag Strip. He won many trophies going over 100 mph at the races. He joined the Redwood Skydiver Club and began skydiving near Ferndale. In 1967, Ted landed in the arena at the Fortuna Rodeo grounds along with other members of Redwood Skydivers. Ted made hundreds of parachute jumps. Ted wanted to try his luck at gold mining, so in the 1960's, he bought the Megram gold mining claim on the New River above Denny in Trinity County. Ted's claim included the historic "Megram Cabin". Ted did find some gold on the claim, however he had better luck in finding many large rattlesnakes. Ted then found his true love: boating on Humboldt Bay and in the Pacific Ocean. When Ted was not working, he could often be found in a boat having fun. This included sailing, fishing, or just out for a boat ride. Oh my, did Ted have many adventures in his boats. Ted was a member of the International Longshore & Warehouse Union Local #14, Orick Weekenders Club, and 31 year member of AA. Ted was kind to all and had a long list of friends. Ted helped many folks throughout his life. His humor, charm and wit will be missed by all. A celebration of Ted's life will be held at the Immanuel Lutheran Church, 3230 Harrison Avenue, on Friday, May 29th at 3 p.m. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to Hospice of Humboldt or the Boy Scouts.

Duncan Sr., Charles Clinton  
CHARLES CLINTON DUNCAN SR. was born to Leonidas and Mary Duncan on September 2, 1929 in Hetten Valley, CA. Although, he fought courageously, Charles passed on May 17, 2015. He is preceded in death by his three wives: Bessie Bernice, Alice and Janet; and all seven siblings: Gordon, John, Cleo, Bessie, Lily, Elizabeth, and Mary. Charles went to grade school in Hetten Valley and high school in Potter Valley and would later take classes at Shasta College to learn how to build log homes. However, he never really settled on one career and would go on to try his hand at a multitude of positions: working at the Old Mill on the Van Duzen River, the Forest Service in Mad River, logger and heavy equipment operator for various outfits, rancher, a cowboy on the rodeo circuit and he even owned a restaurant in Weed, CA. Believing in hard work and staying active, he remained a member of the Fire Department's Search and Rescue Team, helping to build many of the roads and trails throughout the Southern Trinity area which enabled him to know the "country" well, and he had excellent recall of names and directions. Charlie was one of the founding members of the Ruth Riding and Roping Club and was recently honored as the Grand Marshal at the Ruth Rodeo. At the working age of sixteen, he took part in one of the last cattle drives from Graves Ranch in Mad River to Cottonwood Auction in Anderson. Some of his favorite things to do were hunting, camping, riding around to look at the country and sharing a "cold one" with friends and family at the local bars. Charlie was happiest when he was riding in the wilderness or "backcountry" with friends and family for days at a time, clearing trails, hunting and sharing stories of past calamities and good times on the trail. He is survived by his daughter Patricia Willburn of Hetten Valley, son Charles and wife Betty Duncan of Utah, his daughter Joanne and husband Leonard Crnich of Wyoming, step children: Paul, Betty, Sonny, Leonard and Leland, his grandchildren and their spouses: Trisha and Travis Hunter of Idaho, Tessa and Aaron Griffith of Rio Dell, Justin and Megan Willburn of Oregon, Melinda and Rick Egbert of Wyoming, Belinda Crnich of Wyoming, Tonya and Tom Winger of Colorado, Tammy and Shanon Edeleman of Iowa; and his great-granchildren: Emily and Eric Long, Shaun and Dakota Hunter, Wyatt Willburn, Aaron and Sabrina Edeleman. He has many nephews and nieces such as Lonnie and Diane Chester and step-grandchildren and great-step-grandchildren and loved ones like: Brittney, Blaine, Caston, Payton, Haley, Mckinzee and Zee who referred to him as "Grandpa", as well as many friends who just called him "Uncle Charlie". In addition, his dear friend Danene Bates will continue to look after his old horse: "No Name" for him. A Celebration of Life will be held this July with details to be announced at a later date.

Hodge, Larry  
LARRY HODGE With his family by his side, Larry Hodge lost his long battle with cancer on April 30, 2015. He is survived by his wife Kathy and their two sons Cameron and Brennan, and the countless lives that he touched in his lifetime. Larry was born on Dec. 5, 1946 to Harry & Edith Hodge in Chicago, Illinois. The family moved to Southern California in his senior year of high school. Larry took to the California lifestyle and never looked back. After graduating from CSU Northridge with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Larry began his career in the food service industry in 1976 working for the McDonald's Corporation in the Los Angeles region as a Manager Trainee. Catching the eye of Corporate after working his way up from management trainee to the Area Supervisor, he then accepted the position of Franchise Consultant. He continued to rise through the ranks to the position of Director of Operations, overseeing 310 franchise and corporate stores in the Los Angeles area. In 1981 Larry received the President's award, an award only awarded to the top 1% of the international restaurant chain's employees. It was during his time with McDonald's that he met his best friend and wife Kathy. After serving as VP of operations for the La Petite Boulangerie bakery chain and later as Senior VP of Operations for the Rocky Rococo Pizza Corporation, Larry and Kathy opened their first Papa Murphy's franchise in 1989 in Fortuna California. Over the next 26 years together they grew their business beyond Fortuna into 7 states and over 60 stores. Larry was an avid golfer and a regular at Baywood Golf & Country Club where he made countless friends and served as President in 2000. Larry Hodge was an honest and self-made man with a strong moral compass who will be greatly missed by his wife, children, in-laws, countless nephews, nieces and friends. A loving husband, wonderful father and a good man was taken from us too soon. There will be a "Going Away Party" for Larry on June 27th at Baywood Golf & Country Club from 3 - 6 pm for those who would like to come and help send him off in style.
