September 25, 1915 — March 5, 2015

Harold E. Cooper, 99, of Brookfield, Ohio, died at home, Thursday, March 5, 2015, following a two year illness.

Harold was born September 25, 1915 in Brookfield, son of Clarence J. and Myrtle (Bell) Cooper.

He was a 1933 graduate of Brookfield High School. He married Rose Waid on September 9, 1936.
