Sadly, our adored husband, father and grandfather Randy Lynn Cooper passed away on December 25, 2020. He was the son of Edna & George Cooper, born January 29, 1943 in Hurricane, Utah. He graduated from Catalina High School and The University of Arizona in Tucson. Randy is survived by his high school sweetheart, the love of his life, his eternal companion Sally, and their 6 children and spouses: Adam (Catherine), Kelly (Darin), Cori, Shelby (Jay), Mason (Ann), Logan (Ashley), along with 23 grandchildren, and 2 great grandchildren.
His faith and love for The Lord, and for others was easily seen in the service he willingly gave wherever it was needed. He faithfully served in many church callings as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, his favorite callings included working with the youth in the Young Men’s program and working in the Mesa Temple.
Randy worked tirelessly and meticulously as an accountant and as a contractor but loved using his talents and attention to detail to restore classic cars and trucks. He could fix or restore literally anything. Though he had many hobbies, he loved his family more than anything else in life. He was the best at combining his love for his family with his hobbies which included family trips camping, to the beach and Mexico, water skiing, driving his sand rail at the dunes, attending sporting events, and especially watching his grandkids play or perform. He also loved settling down with a Dr. Pepper, some popcorn, and a good book, or any movie (he never saw a bad one).
Randy was always smiling, laughing, and was never too busy to help anyone who needed a hand, whether they were a friend or complete stranger, he was always willing to give whatever he had, time or possessions, to help others. He was humble and selfless; we will be forever grateful for his example and will miss him dearly.
