Walter Delance Cooper, 51, of Columbia, SC passed away on March 26, 2021. Walter was born on July 6, 1969 to James and Izura Cooper in Georgetown, SC. Growing up Walter spent many years and summers with his grandparents Richard and Ozelia Davis on their farm in South Carolina. Walter graduated Columbia High School in 1987 and continued on to study health management with both Midlands Tech and Kaplan University.
Using his education, Walter became a health transporter for over 10 plus years for Palmetto Baptist Hospital in Columbia, SC and held various positions at the Industries of the Blind here in Greensboro, NC. In 2014, he met Patricia Jamison and they wed the following year of 2015 building a life in Greensboro, NC. Through Patricia, Walter learned of Jehovah, began his studies, and then became a baptized servant of Jehovah himself.
Walter was a force of nature and determined to make anyone laugh if he had the opportunity. Anyone who knew Walter described him as loving, comical, thoughtful, supportive, generous, and overall a person full of joy and delight. Walter was a passionate Steelers fan and could often be found playing family games and watching movies in his downtime. He was a friend to many at his place of work and also amongst his brothers and sisters within the Christian congregation.
Walter’s memories will live on through all of his family members. He is survived by his wife Patricia Cooper, his parents James and Izura Cooper, his brother Michael Cooper, his former wife Teresa Warren, their children, Brandon, Matthew, and Andrew Cooper, his step-children Andre and Janea Jamison, and his grandchildren Jaylin-James Cooper, Kaiden Cooper, and Kyler Cooper. All of Walters family including several aunts, uncles and a host of cousins and friends will be here to continue Walter’s memory as well.
