Mr. Charles Proctor Cooper III

Charles Proctor Cooper III, known simply as “Biff,” of Newnan, GA, passed away at age 63 following a valiant struggle with prostate cancer on Friday, June 28, 2013.

Biff was born in Buffalo, NY, on January 27, 1950. He previously resided in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, where he met his beautiful wife, Jeanne, of 35 years; Manitoba, Canada, where his three sons were born; and finally to Newnan, where his sons were raised and where he served as president and CEO of Cooper and Sons Electric Inc.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Charles P. Cooper Jr and Mary Ellen Curme, and his eldest son, Charles Proctor Cooper IV. He is survived by his wife, Valory Jeanne Cooper of Newnan, GA; sons, Stephen Benjamin Cooper of Newnan, GA, and Andrew John Cooper of Washington, D.C; daughter-in-law, Jennifer Ann Cooper; and granddaughters, Chloe Peyton Cooper and Callista Riley Cooper of Jacksonville, FL; brother, Duncan Cooper and his wife, Joyce, of Martha’s Vineyard, MA; sister, Amy Reece and her husband, Doug, of Martha’s Vineyard, MA; and brother, Mac Cooper and his wife, Mary, of Avondale, RI.

Biff’s first and foremost love was Jesus. Second was his family — he dedicated his 13 year electrical contracting business and life to his wife and three sons. Through his business and ministry, he touched the lives of so many by raising his sons to be God-fearing men, giving others a second chance through employment and mentoring, and always treating everyone honestly, respectfully, and fairly.

Biff’s life took him from studies and a stellar tennis career at the University of Virginia to welding bridges in Winnipeg, Manitoba, to the tennis courts of Martha’s Vineyard, and finally into the homes of so many in the Metro-Atlanta area. Biff loved to play tennis, golf, and any activity that involved his sons and wife. Anyone he knew became a life-long friend, and never was an enemy made.

A celebration of Biff’s life will be held Saturday, July 6, 2013, at 1 p.m. at Grace Covenant Worship Center in Hogansville, GA.

Heritage Funeral Home, 1512 Williamson Road, Griffin, GA 30224, is in charge of arrangements.
