Richard G. Cooper III of Whittier, California was born on August 14, 1940. He passed away peacefully after a courageous two year battle with prostate cancer on October 25, 2008 with his wife at his bedside. He kept a positive attitude to the end, and now he is home with the Lord. Finally free.
In lieu of flowers or gifts, the family asks for contributions to PCRI in his memory.
The Prostate Cancer Research Institute mission is to improve the quality of men’s lives by supporting research and disseminating information that educates and empowers patients, families and the medical community.
