Mr. Cooper was preceded in death by his parents, John Larkin and Edna Pearl Cooper, one sister, Mildred Martin, and two brothers, David W. Cooper and John "Johnny" T. Cooper.
Robert is survived by his wife of 56 years, Maelene Cooper; one son, Randell Lesley Cooper and wife, Lynn, of Guntersville, Alabama; one daughter, Sheri Michelle Eagerton and husband, Mark, of Florence, Alabama; three grandchildren, Michael Lesley Cooper, of Guntersville, Alabama, Brooke Nicole Cooper, of Guntersville, Alabama, and Jessica LeAnn Eagerton, of Florence, Alabama; two sisters, Eunice Norman, of Akron, Ohio, and Barbara Hale, of Athens, Alabama; one brother, James H. Cooper, of Florida; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Robert enjoyed gardening and telling people how to do things his way. He was a retired machinist with TVA. He always said 3:30 p.m. was quitting time, and he didn't get paid overtime, and he left this world at 3:15 p.m. He was a loving husband, father, brother, and the best Paw Paw we could ever have.
The family would like to give a special thanks to the Northwest Alabama Cancer Center staff, ECM Ambulatory Surgery receptionists and infusion, Hospice of North Alabama, and his friends with TVA.
Pallbearers will be family and friends.
Elkins Funeral Home of Florence would like to invite you to light a candle and leave condolences at elkinsfuneralhome.com.
