Offer Condolences for the family of Thomas Russell CooperPrint Obituary & Condolences
Tom was the older brother of two childhood friends, Gary and David, when I was growing up in Fremont and he would haul us around to the drive-in and such. I admired Tom for he seemed to have a set purpose and direction for his life; something that many of us young people did not back in the 60s. May God fill the minds of his Loved Ones with wonderful memories of how he loved you as I’m sure he held a special place in heart for each of you.
Heartfelt sympathy to your family in your loss.

I met Tom when we were both young parents. I have good memories of the times he, Sharon and Crystal spent time with my family. My deepest sympathy to the family.
