Burial was in the parish cemetery. Mr. Cooper died December 25, 2018, at the QE II Health Sciences Centre, V.G. Site, Halifax. Born in Sydney, he was a son of Mary Elizabeth (Beth) and the late Carl Mills Cooper. He was a Red Seal carpenter and, for the last 25 years, was a member of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners, where his work took him all over the world, from Western Canada to Bermuda. A highly skilled carpenter, he was always willing to give a hand and freely gave of his talent to many friends and family. He was an avid hockey and football fan and enjoyed fishing, golfing and even achieved a hole-in-one at the Dundee Golf Club. He will be remembered for his fondness of animals, especially dogs. Besides his mother, he is survived by nine siblings, Bethalee Cooper, Antigonish; Mark (Debra), Havre Boucher; Jamie (Brenda), Port Hastings; Carl (Cathy), West Bay; Brian (Sharon), Bedford; Donald, Antigonish; Leo (Dorothy), Kempt Road; Rachael (Danny) Cooper Neil, Guildford England; Thomas, New York; many nieces and Nephews.
