Herman W. Cooper

Herman W. Cooper, 49, of Bucyrus died early Saturday, September 4, 2021 at Bucyrus Community Hospital after years of failing health and a recent infection.



He was born September 23, 1971 to Herman C. Cooper and the late Hannah Angie Cooper. Herman graduated from Wynford High School in 1989. He met Vanessa Hensley in the summer of 1990 and they began dating late that year. They were married October 5, 1991. Over the years, he worked for Continental Hose, IB Tech, and Walmart. He became very sick in 2015 and was well taken care of by Vanessa when her own battle with throat cancer made him the caregiver until her death on December 31, 2020.



Herman will be remembered as a loving, quiet, selfless man who took care of everyone. He adored his children, and his goofy side was known to come out on occasion, especially for his beloved Raven. He played sports in high school and loved rooting for the Buckeyes and Bengals. Outside of work, Herman enjoyed fishing, going to his son’s football games and wrestling matches, watching television, and was a dependable “taxi service” for his kids and family.



Herman is survived by his father, Herman (Sammy) Cooper; children, Sierra and Sawyer Cooper; granddaughter, Raven Shope; an expected grandson; brother, Adam Cooper; mother-in-law, Nellie Morris; father-in-law, Ken Hensley; sisters-in-law, Jennifer Glines and Patricia (Matt) Horsley; brother-in-law, Kenny (Katrina) Naveja; along with many extended family and friends.



In addition to his wife and mother, Herman was preceded in death by Vanessa’s stepdad and his fishing buddy, Randy Morris.



Herman’s family will receive friends on Wednesday, September 8 from 2-4 and 6-8 pm at Wise Funeral Service in Bucyrus where his funeral will be held Thursday at 11:00 am with Certified Celebrant, Mark Dettmer officiating. Burial will follow in Oakwood Cemetery.
