Craig Elliott Cooper was born in Tulsa, OK on July 28, 1983 and “Finished
the Fight” on August 14, 2015. He was the beloved son of Jeff and
Dayna Cooper, and Brother to Ruth Cooper.
Craig was a true Sandite, graduating from Charles Page High School in 2002.
After receiving his associates degree, he went on to complete his Doctorate
of Pharmacy from the University of Oklahoma. He began his career as a
Pharmacist in Cleveland, OK. In 2013 he made the move to the Sand Springs
CVS, obtaining the position of pharmacist in charge after 6 months. He
was honored to be a pharmacist in his home town and assist with the health
needs of his community.
On October 9, 2009 Craig married Elizabeth “Betsy” Cooper.
Three years later they welcomed their daughter Evelynn Cooper. Craig was
a proud father and husband. He loved making Betsy and Evelynn laugh and
smile. He was a strong man of Christ and provided for his family.
Craig enjoyed the game of golf, soccer, and watching “Gods team,”
the Dallas Cowboys. He has always been the life of the party, because
as we all know he was “kind of a big deal.”
His infectious sense of humor and laugh has been imprinted on the hearts
of anyone who knew him. He will be greatly missed; however, his story
will have impact on the lives of others for years to come.
