Charles Howard Cooper, aged 90, of Rome, Georgia, on Thursday, December 7, 2023. Born to William Howard Cooper and Lossie Lee Striplin Cooper on August 4, 1933, in the same town, Charles’s life was a testament to devotion, service, and family values.

Charles was the beloved husband of the late Helen Marie Langham Cooper, with whom he shared sixty-three years of marital harmony. Their life together was a beautiful journey of love and mutual respect, ending with Helen’s passing in 2021. In addition to his parents and his cherished wife, he was predeceased by his daughters, Ann Marie King, and Ellen Lee Cooper; his brothers, Gerald Cooper and Elbert Cooper; and his sisters, Dorthy McCulloch and Jane Fincher.

Charles’s role as a father and grandfather was imbued with affection and pride, witnessing the growth and successes of his family.

Charles served his country with honor in the military for three years, a period that shaped his character and work ethic. He later joined Bellsouth as a cable technician, where he demonstrated diligence and expertise. In retirement, Charles found joy in creating memorable moments with his family, cherishing every opportunity to be with his loved ones.
