Gerald (Jerry) Cooper

March 1939
May 2024


Jerry was a man who loved people. This was very evident with each interaction. He had an easy smile and an even easier laugh, neither of which he held back from anyone he interacted with. His love of people stemmed from his deep love and faith in God and his Savior Jesus. He leaves the world with a legacy of love, prayer, laughter, song, and a clear message of his hope in the afterlife. He was a good son, devoted husband of 62 years, loving father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. He was a stranger to no one, and shared his life, love, money, and time with so many people, too many to count. No love was left unexpressed in his life. We love him and look forward to seeing him again.
