Note

BROWNSBURG — Robert Wilmington “Coop” Cooper, 88, of Brownsburg, died Saturday, May 2, 2015 at Prestwick Manor in Avon following a brief illness. Robert was born and raised in Vincennes. He joined the U.S. Navy at age 18 and very proudly served his country in the Pacific Theater during World War II. He was a quartermaster and served on the Gold Star AG 12, which honorably earned two battle stars during his tour. He then signed on to serve during the Korean War. Robert was always willing and eager to share his war stories about his navy days. He proudly went to work for Montgomery Ward after his service to his country. His career took him to Terre Haute, Wilmington, North Carolina and San Diego. During his retirement he returned to Indiana. When his health allowed it he spent his winters on the Gulf of Mexico; he truly loved the time he spent down there. He loved to play golf and he had a hole-in-one that he was so proud to have achieved at a now closed golf course in Brownsburg. Robert had a great sense of humor that was enjoyed by many and will be sadly missed. Robert is survived by a daughter, Ruth; a niece, Mary Cooper; step-children Debbie Flanagan, Robert Reeder and Brenda Reeder; grandchildren Brendon, Ian, Chris, Michael Flanagan, Jeff Reeder and Andrea Lake; and three great-grandchildren. Robert was preceded in death by his wife, Elaine (Borden) Cooper, and his second wife, Dolores (Lindholm) Reeder Cooper; his parents, Homer O. and Ruth (House) Cooper; his brother, John Cooper, and his twin, James House Cooper. A private memorial service was held. Donations in his honor can be made to the Wounded Warrior Project at http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org His arrangements were provided by Matthews Mortuary in Brownsburg.
