|Cooper, Marshall Omar
Birth: 1981-07-02 in Prince Frederick, Maryland
|Marshall Omar "Coop" Cooper, 32, was born on July 2, 1981 at Calvert Memorial Hospital in Prince Frederick, Maryland to Marshall S. Cooper & Marilyn I. Cooper. He departed his life on July 18, 2013.|
Omar attended Calvert County Public Schools. At a young age, he was involved in many activities, which included helping his mom in the community with political campaigns, as well as feeding and clothing needy families. Omar enjoyed reading books. He read 720 books each year for six years, in which the local newspaper honored him for his accomplishments. His passion for various sports, including track and football, earned him a spot in the Kentucky All Star team, who played in Australia. He had a passion for planes and dreamed of being a jet pilot. His favorite movie was "Top Gun" and he could recite the movie word from word. Omar joined Coopers United Methodist Church at a young age.
God blessed Omar with the talent of Drawing & Arts with additional guidance from his dad. He kept a pen and paper with him at all times. He started with ideas of various animation drawings, tattoo drawings, motorcycles and eventually designed logos for multiple motorcycle clubs including his own, Dark Side Ryderz. As founder, Omar spent most of his free time with "Blacky," his first love, his 2005 GSXR1000.
A dedicated worker at a young age led him to obtaining his commercial driver's license and drove for various distributing companies. His current employment was with Maines Paper & Food Services Inc. He loved his co-workers and always kept them laughing along their journey.
Omar always kept his family first. As a devoted father, he strived to create lasting memories for who he called his "little ones". A trip to museums, playtime in the park, flying remote controlled helicopters, countless movie nights, and just good quality time, is what he looked forward to. For those who knew him, they will remember his gentle character, good food, his passion for fashion, and his signature laugh.
Omar's memories will live on through his parents, Marshall S. Cooper & Marilyn I. Cooper and his magnificent sister, Matari Cooper (Miracle), his brother from another mother, Samuel Pumphrey, Jr., his grandparents, Myrtle Freeland, Methuselah Pumphrey, and Mary Pumphrey, his children, lyanna, Tyree, Orlan, and Keaden Cooper; and their mother, Kandice Mackall, his closest uncles who were like brothers, Carlton Freeland, Gregory Cooper, and Samuel Pumphrey, Sr, his aunts, Alice Evans, Corlisa Brooks, Jean Jones, Alice Harrod, Janice Mozee, Rosie Cooper, and Garnette Jones, his loving and devoted girlfriend, Dashonna Jones and a host of close cousins and dear friends.
