My sincerest condolence to Coop's Family & Friends. I had the privilege of working with Coop for a few years at Citi. He always had a smile for all who knew him. In his position he helped me out Greatly on many occasions, not because he had to but because his heart was huge and being happy and helpful seemed to just come natural to him. There were stressful days in which his smile was the only one I would see that day, and it gave me hope that I could turn that stressful day around. He was a wonderful man, I am a better person for having known him. May God Bless You All as you go through this difficult time!

I had the privilege of working with Coop for several years. Though we were on opposite sides of the country I have many fond memories of him and his sense of humor. He will be remembered with fondness. Please accept my prayers during this time of grief .
