In Memory

Frank Cooper

Frank was a classmate but did not graduate with us.  He died in his wife's arms shortly after being diagnosed with and starting treatment for lung cancer.  He was living in South Kansas City and was working as an auto mechanic.  He is survived by his wife Mary and daughter Dana.  His funeral attracted a 3 mile procession, indicative of how well-respected he was in his community and how well-loved by his family and friends.
