Donald August Cooper passed away on Tuesday, November 14, 2017 at the age of 74. He was the beloved husband of Mollie Perez Cooper for almost 48 years. Son of the late Herbert and Hazel Cooper. Father of Donald August Cooper, Jr. Brother-in-law of John Perez. He is also survived by their canine companion, Echo.

He and his wife Mollie had their first date when he asked her to church, setting what would become the pattern for their home.
