Brent Lester Cooper

The seasonal earthly journey for Brent Lester Cooper began on Monday, May 31, 1965 in Newton County, Ga. He was the son of Mr. and Mrs.  Johnny (Nadine) Cooper. He attended Newton County Schools and was a graduate of Newton County High School. He was joined in holy matrimony for nineteen years to the love of his life, the late Lisa Johnson Cooper. He confirmed his faith by joining the Pleasant View Baptist Church where he served as a member of the gospel choir. He was preceded in death by his wife, two grandmothers, two uncles and two aunts.

Lester was a fun-loving person with many talents.  He was a self-proclaimed grill master and baker. He never hesitated to use his grilling skills at family functions or whenever called upon. His sense of style was like no other. He was a huge fan of famous name brand attire. He took pride in coordinating every outfit. His clothes and shoes had to perfectly match. His ensemble was not complete without a splash of his favorite cologne. The seasonal earthly journey for Lester quietly came to completion on Friday, May 22, 2020. We can only imagine the joy he experienced seeing Jesus’ face and reuniting with his forever love, Lisa.
