Robert "Bobby" Bruce Cooper

Robert “Bobby” Bruce Cooper, 50, of Marion, North Carolina, passed away Friday, October 08, 2021 at his home. He was surrounded by family and friends.

He was born in Chicago, raised in Mountain City, Tennessee, but called Marion his home. He was born on October 26, 1970 to the late Millard Cooper and June Price Cooper.

Bobby was a hard worker and a great provider for his family. He always made sure his wife and children were taken care of, and he never failed to call them each night as he traveled for work. He was very active in his kids’ sports activities. He will be remembered for being a stubborn man who enjoyed telling jokes. He was also an avid Pittsburgh Steelers fan.

In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by two brothers, Ricky Cooper and Mike Cooper.

Those left to cherish his memories are his wife, Beatrice Ashe Cooper; two children, Camron Cooper (Christy Hollifield) and Candace Cooper (Eric Dunbar); a special second daughter, Lynn Washburn; and three siblings, Terry Cooper (Marilyn), Gary Cooper, and Kathy Blevins (Glen); and sister-in-law, Colleen Cooper.

A funeral service will be held on Tuesday, October 12, 2021 at 2:00 p.m. in the Chapel of Beam Funeral Service with Rev. Steven Bugenhagen officiating. Interment will follow at McDowell Memorial Park. The family will receive friends from 1:00 until 2:00 p.m.

Bobby was such a great person. It was evident that he loved his family dearly. He talked about y'all every chance he got. I will miss hearing his booming voice in the office occasionally and his gifts of pickled eggs & peppers at Christmas time. He was such a hard worker and honest man. Our prayers will continue to be with his family for comfort and healing from up above.
