Alvin was born, April 3, 1938, in Newton, to his parents, Alvin and Willie Cooper, and lived his whole life in and around Kellogg.  Al spent 58 years of his life as an engineer and sales person, traveling to far away places in this endeavor.  Although he worked these many years, he still found time to pursue many other hobbies and interests.  He was a pilot, lay minister, square dance caller, licensed amateur radio operator, volunteer fireman, shooting enthusiast and avid fisherman to name a few.  During his life he was a member of the Kellogg United Methodist Church,the Izaak Walton League, the National Rifle Association, the Kellogg Volunteer Fire Department, the Iowa River Gun Club, the Central Iowa Square Dance Callers Association and the Newton Amateur Radio Association.

In their years together, Al and Judy were fortunate to travel to many parts of our beautiful world, including the Caribbean, Hawaii, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and may points in our United States of America.  

Al is survived by his wife Judy of 56 years; son, Mark (Judi) Cooper of Johnston; daughter, Cheryl (Scott) Heng of Waukee; and all six of his grandchildren.  He was preceded in death by his parents; Judy’s parents; sister-in-law, Rosalie Hinshaw; a brother-in-law, Mike Hinshaw; and 13 half-brothers and sisters.
