Obituary

In Loving Memory of Garry Cooper

On Tuesday, July 23, 2019, loving husband, brother, father, and grandfather, Garry Cooper, passed away at the age of 77.

Garry was born in Haliburton, Ontario, on February 25, 1942, to Fred and Holly (Prosser) Cooper. He worked at Caterpillar for 25 years, London Life for four and Emmerson’s Lumber for ten years. In 1965, he married Jean Francis. They raised two children, Sally and Mark. In 1991, he married Ruth (Leeder) Poole and they moved to Barry Line where they lived until this year, when they retired to Oshawa.

Every year Garry went hunting and fishing. He loved running, excelled at track and field in high school and played softball and broomball as an adult. When raising children, he lived in Inglewood, where he served as a volunteer firefighter, as Captain, and headed the town’s recreation committee, volunteered with rep hockey and softball and sang in the Achill choir. Garry loved woodworking and often made signs, furniture and art works for his home and as gifts. He was known for his charm, his kindness, his stories, his bass voice, his love of cards, horseshoes, dancing, country music, and the Toronto Blue Jays. He was a big spirit and will be dearly missed.

Garry was predeceased by his mother (Holly): his father (Fred): his stepmother (Illa); his brother (Jerald); his brother-in-law (Martin); his sister-in-law (Pat) and his nephew (Dwayne). He is survived by his wife Ruth, his two children Sally (Daniel) and Mark (Pam); his four grandchildren Lily, Cameron, Raven and Isis, his brother Ralph (Cathy), his sister Colleen (Bob), his stepsons Jonathan (Janice) and Andrew (Lori) and their children Amelia, Benjamin, Caleb and Phoenix, and by several nieces and nephews.

Friends are invited to visit the family at the Gordon A. Monk Funeral Home Ltd., 127 Bobcaygeon Rd., P.O. Box 427, Minden K0M 2K0 on Monday from 6:00 until 9:00 pm.

Dear Ruth, Sally and Mark and family, we would like to express our sincere condolences and we are deeply saddened by the loss of Garry. We are unable to attend but wanted you to know how much we admired him. My ultimate wish was to be his partner for horseshoes!! That would have made my day. He loved to tell us stories about the grandchildren and took great pride in doing so. We have a daughter that has special needs and Garry always took time to talk with her and ask her how her life was going. We very much appreciated that❤️. Thoughts are with you at this time. Bob and Sharon Bottineau, Barry Line Neighbours.
