Cooper, Kevin Scott
January 28, 1961 – July 15, 2014
It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved Kevin on July 15th at Kelowna General Hospital with his parents by his side. Kevin’s life during the last 9 years had been challenging and at times very difficult, and fought very hard, but knew when it was time to let go. His parents thought he was the bravest of the brave.
Kevin was born in Kelowna where he lived most of his short 53 years. He was an excellent welder and his passion was vehicles which he loved to bring back to life. He also loved hockey which he played in his youth. Kevin will be deeply missed by his parents, Jack and Hellevi Cooper, his two brothers, Greg Cooper (Glenda) & Blair Cooper (Glenda). His nieces and nephews Crystal (Joel) deBoer, Alison Cooper, Tyler Cooper, Timaree (Curtis) Wallace, Aric Cooper & Andrew Purcha, his great nieces and nephews, Ayla, Ayden & Josh DeBoer & Carter and Baby Ciera Wallace.
We wish to thank Kevin’s many friends who stood by and helped him throughout his prolonged illness, and the staff at Kelowna General Hospital I.C.U.
There are no goodbyes. Wherever you’ll be, you’ll be in our hearts forever.
In lieu of flowers, please remember The Cystic Fibrosis Fund or Canadian Lung Association.
Cremation arrangements are being made along with a small Celebration of Life with family and Kevin’s friends.
