It is with great heartache that our family announces the death of Dave, beloved husband of 40 years to Karen Cooper. Admired father to their two children and their partners; Kyle and Karla and Bryan and Jessica (Brown). Sadly, missed by his grandchildren Sunny, Fallyn and Hughy. Predeceased by his parents Jim and Ruth Cooper. Adored by his siblings, Glen (Carol), Nancy Laverne (Peter), Doug (Lorie), and Perry (Janet), as well as his nieces, nephews and countless friends.
Dave lived life to the fullest. He knew what was important in life, and his world centered around the love he had for his wife Karen, sons Kyle and Bryan and now grandchildren. Dave was a very proud “Papa”, and loved reading stories to his grandkids. He enjoyed golfing, the Red Wings, Florida, traveling, boating, coaching hockey and most of all spending time with all the ones he loved most. He spent over 40+ years teaching at St. Clair College, and was a beloved professor by his many students & staff over the years. Dave’s smile, laugh and humor was always contagious throughout his amazing life.
Our family is devastated by the sudden loss of this extraordinary man, but will continue to keep his life alive in our hearts and memories.
Visitation will take place at the Blenheim Community Funeral Home on Monday May 10, 2021. ALL VISITATION TIMES HAVE BEEN FILLED. The Bereavement Authority of Ontario mandates that everyone must wear a face covering in the funeral home.
