J. Humphrey Cooper passed away on Saturday, February 10, 2007 at the age of 90 years.
Born June 27, 1916 in Calgary, Humphrey will be remembered for a life of service to his church, family, and profession. A Certified Management Accountant, he practiced in a variety of local industries. He moved to London, Ontario as internal auditor for Silverwood Dairies in 1970, and returned to Calgary after retiring in his mid-seventies. The Baptist Church was a central focus in Humphrey’s life. He faithfully served as deacon, treasurer, teller, and choir member until his mid-eighties. A keen observer of nature, he shared interests in photography, ham radio, science, astronomy, and the outdoors with family and friends.
Humphrey is survived and lovingly remembered by his wife of sixty-one years Wilma; her sisters Esther Schlosser and Florence Perkins; three sons, Dave (Gail), Dale (Judy), and Paul (Deborah); eight grandchildren and one great-grandchild. Humphrey was predeceased by his sister Lucy and two brothers, Gunnar and Fred.
