Willie Mark Cooper, Sr., 86, beloved husband of Lessie B. Goins Cooper, went home to be with the Lord Thursday, October 6, 2016 at his residence. 
Mr. Cooper was born the son of Easmon Cooper and Beatrice Blakely Cooper on November 11, 1929 in Creedmoor, NC.  In 1968, after 20 years of faithful service to our great Nation, Staff Sarggent Cooper retired from United States Air Force having served in Japan, Korea, (Okinawa), Taiwan, and North Africa.  He was a former security guard for the Veteran’s Hospital in Miami, FL.  In 1969, Willie Cooper committed his life and heart to a greater nation – the Kingdom of God.  This trained soldier received Christ as his Savior beginning his labors at the First Church of the Nazarene of Homestead, FL. In 1976, the Cooper family moved to Georgetown, SC, and Mr. Cooper continued his ministry in the First Church of the Nazarene of Georgetown serving as a Sunday School Superintendent and a Church Board member.  In 1991, the Coopers moved their ministry to the Cornerstone Baptist Church and he was again utilized as the gifted teacher he was anointed to be serving in the Adult Sunday School. He enjoyed traveling and camping.  Mr. Cooper’s greatest accomplishment and lasting legacy is found in his love as a devoted husband, a loving father, a cherished grandfather, a caring brother, and a loyal friend.   
Willie and Lessie were married on December 18, 1956 and celebrated 59 years together.   Their home was blessed with:  five children, Terry Kirton, Deborah Jones of Selma, AL, Anthony (Jennifer) Cooper of Youngsville, NC, Willie Mark (Alicia) Cooper, Jr. of Virginia Beach, VA, and Tanya (William) McCall of Georgetown; eleven grandchildren, and thirteen great-grandchildren.  He also leaves behind:  three brothers, Junior Cooper, Sammy Cooper, Everette Cooper; three sisters, Dorothy Bryant, Connie Todd, and Betty Ann (William Earl) Shannon; and a number of nieces and nephews.  
He was predeceased by: his parents; a son, Terry Kirton; three sisters, Helen Cribb, Callie Rea Milligan, and Margie Snowden; and three brothers, Clyde O’Neal Cooper, Lee Cooper, Felton Cooper and Eldon Cooper.
A Home Going Celebration with Military Honors will be 2PM, Wednesday, October 12, 2016 at the Cornerstone Baptist Church directed by the Georgetown Chapel of McKenzie Funeral Home. 
 The Cooper family will receive family and friends immediately after the service in the church sanctuary.
