I just went reach out to Cooper who I have not spoken to in a couple of years to find out of his passing. He was just an awesome kind man who I grew to know over many years as he was my fence guy and did many projects for properties I rehabbed. I considered him a friend and a gentleman. May his memory be a blessing to those who loved him.

Cooper, as I knew him, installed a fence for me 14 years ago. I am heartbroken to find he has passed away. Great guy...great great guy is about all I can say; in a short couple of days he left an impression on me that I won't ever forget. I just became aware of his passing as I Googled his business hoping to contact him.
To his wife, children and other family members, I pray that God will continue to mend your hearts and give you peace.
