We announce with great sadness, the sudden passing of John Cooper, age 67; at home in Brighton ON, on Thursday, November 24, 2022.
Deeply missed by his wife of 40 years, Joan Wild. He is survived by his brothers David Cooper of Walsingham ON, Stephen Cooper (June) of Lindale AB, and Mark Cooper of Kitchener ON, and sister-in-law Betty of Deep River ON. He was predeceased by his brother Edward Cooper, and his parents John (Jack) and Marie Cooper. Cherished uncle and great-uncle to many nieces and nephews.
John grew up in Kitchener, and attended Lakehead University graduating in 1979 with a Hon. B. Sc. in Forestry. He worked as a Forester with Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources, and later as a Financial Analyst with Ontario Ministry of Northern Development and Mines.
John’s greatest passion was being outdoors. He enjoyed cottage life, fishing, hunting, camping, and almost any type of sport.
Cremation has taken place. A celebration of life will occur at a later date.
