In loving memory of Bernard "Fry" Cooper, 72 years old. He passed away Friday, Sept. 7 at 11a.m. at the Hospice House in Sebring, Fla. Fry was surrounded by his family and friends at the time of his passing. He was born in Coopers Creek, W.Va. and graduated from Elkview High School in Elkview, W.Va. in 1957. He lived in Florida for 40 years and in Sebring for the last 24 years.
He is survived by his wife, Christina Cooper; sister-in-law, Debbie Weisgerber; sister, Nellie Cottrill; daughters, Shan Bentley and Charley Davis; sons, Franklin Cooper and Scott Cooper; grandbabies, Diane Bentley, Emily Lee, Landon Cooper and Bentley Cooper; great-grandbabies, Fayth Rose and Bentley Hess; sons-in-law, Bobby Bentley and Ross McMinn; and daughters-in-law, Selena Cooper and Jennifer Cooper. He was preceded in death by his first wife and mother of his children, Shirley Ann Cooper.
Fry was an amazing man and we were all blessed to have him in our lives. He will be deeply missed and always loved.
There will be a memorial service Sunday, Sept. 16, 2012 at the Sebring Moose Lodge at 1 p.m. The Moose Lodge is located on Hwy. 98. In lieu of flowers we would like and appreciate that donations be made instead. Fry was passionate about helping the Humane Society of Highlands County, the Moffitt Cancer Center, the Moose Lodge and Hospice so we would like to keep that passion and need to help alive even after his passing. "We hope that your passion will fall in with one of these great causes as well."
