Glen Alan Cooper was born July 10, 1946 in Memphis, TN and passed away on September 6, 2023 at his home in Southaven, MS. He leaves behind his best friend and wife of nearly 60 years, Cheryl Tubbs Cooper, and their three daughters – Leslie Cooper Townsend (Ted), Georgia Cooper Spragg, and Connie Rasberry; two granddaughters, Megan Rasberry and Sophie Townsend; and the great-granddaughter who had him wrapped around her little finger, Molly Elizabeth Cooper.
He also leaves a half-brother, Will Cooper of Phoenix, AZ; granddaughter-in-law, Liz Cooper, and a large extended family of relatives and friends.
Family who preceded Glen include his parents, J.R. and Thelma Cooper; his siblings Larry Cooper, Janet Cooper Bullock, and his beloved little brother, Johnny Cooper as well as his beloved grandson, Jesse Cooper (“Hey, Kid”).
Glen was known to be a bit of a walking encyclopedia and could discuss in depth a wide range of topics from history to mechanical to cinematic to electronics to music. He worked for many years in sales where his knowledge and friendly personality meshed well together. He also moonlighted, along with his uncle and at least two cousins, as an usher in the early days of the Mid-South Coliseum. Glen had a great, zany sense of humor (often a bit on the dry side) and he appreciated the quirky side of things.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Thursday, September 14, at Twin Oaks Funeral Home in Southaven, MS. A gathering of family and friends will begin at 5:00 p.m. and a Memorial Service will begin at 6:00 p.m.
