It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Phillip Timothy Cooper, a cherished husband, daddy, uncle, brother and pillar of his community. Tim, as he was affectionately known, was born in Puerto Rico and raised in Albany, Georgia. Throughout his life, Tim exemplified selflessness, generosity, and unwavering love for his family and friends.

Tim was a devoted husband and daddy, sharing a love that inspired all who knew him. His dedication to his wife and daughter was unwavering, and his role as a daddy extended beyond his own to embrace many others as his own children. He touched countless lives with his kindness, leaving an indelible mark on all who had the privilege of knowing him.

His giving nature knew no bounds, and Tim was always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. Whether it was a comforting word, a supportive gesture, or a selfless act of kindness. Tim’s presence brought warmth and light into the lives of those around him.

Tim’s legacy of love, compassion, and service will live on in the hearts of his loved ones and the countless lives he touched. Though he may no longer be with us in person, his spirit will continue to inspire kindness and generosity for generations to come.

In honoring Tim’s memory, let us strive to emulate his example of love, kindness, and selflessness in our own lives. He will be dearly missed and never forgotten.

Rest in peace, Daddy.  We all love you with all of our hearts.
