Published in Sept. 8, 1999, issue

Hank "Coop" Cooper of Beverly, Mass., lately of Marblehead, died Apr. 9, 1999. Henry was raised in the Philippines and graduated from Exeter. At Princeton, he majored in chemical engineering, won a major "P" in track, belonged to Cannon Club, and roomed with Batchelor, Walen, Nunez, and Gordon.

Hank served as a lieutenant in the Navy Reserve as navigation officer on the USS Card, which captured a U-boat and its secret codes. After working for Dewey & Almy Chemical, he launched his own business, the Terrell Corp., pioneering in the field of hot melt adhesives.

He sailed 18,000 miles in nine months, as described in our 50th-reunion book. He was a member of the Sandy Bay Yacht Club and with his son Ted owned Able Custom Yachts.

His wife of 54 years, Terrell, died in 1998; he was also predeceased by his son Henry. He is survived by his son Charles and three grandsons. The class extends its deepest sympathy to his entire family.
