Obituary for Ollie Edward Cooper, Sr.

Ollie “Eddie” Edward Cooper, 74 years of age, passed away surrounded by family on June 28th, 2022 in Florence, KY. Eddie was born at home in Union, KY on November 1st, 1947 to his late parents Robert Cooper and Eileen Cooper. He is also preceded in death by his daughter, Linda Sue Cooper, his brother, Robert “Bobby” Cooper, and his sister, Carol Morris.

Eddie is survived by his wife, Laveata Cooper, his daughter, Lana Bridget-Cooper (Margie), his sons, Ollie Edward Cooper Jr. (Tina), Anthony Scott Cooper (Jenny), and Jay Thomas Cooper (Amber), stepdaughters, Kimberly Brison (Bill) and Karen Boyd, Stepson, Darrell Mitchell. Eddie is also survived by his grandchildren, Andrew Scott Cameron, Steven “Stevie” Andrew Cameron, Timothy James Estep, Johnathan Scott Estep, Brandon Edward Cooper, Brittany Nicole Cooper, Kristina Marae Morrison, Anthony Scott Cooper Jr., Magen Marie Cooper, Haley Nicole Cooper, Mylah Adira Cooper, Nikia Candace Granger, Jeffrey Isaiah Schraer, Lydia Marie Schraer, Atlas Cole, Zachariah Emilio Cole, 19 great grandchildren, 5 step grandchildren, and 6 step great grandchildren.

Eddie was a United States Army Vietnam Veteran. During his service he received the National Defense Service Metal, Vietnam Service Metal, and the Vietnam Campaign Metal. He delt with his challenges in life with the same strength and bravery demonstrated during his time of active duty. He leaves behind a legacy of exemplary heroism in military service and throughout his life.

In his youth, Eddie enjoyed restoring classic cars. He was well known throughout his life for his love and mastery of fishing and his great love for family and friends. His gentle spirit, kindness, and sense of humor had the ability to bring out the best in others, make them laugh, soothe their fears and worries, and feel genuinely cared for. But what most people didn’t know about Eddie was his love of art, his gentle nature and kindness toward animals, his affinity for the natural world, and his contemplation of the Bible.
