Cooper Orion Velasquez Olson October 21, 1994 - July 24, 2018

A low maintenance guy with a hard-working smile, Cooper was a friend to all who had the pleasure to know him. Someone who would drive through a Minnesota blizzard just to pick you up, there wasn’t a more loyal person. With a willingness to travel, he managed to see the world in the short time he was with us, from studying in Argentina, to climbing the mountains in Yosemite. Cabin trips, Frisbee golf and late-night fast food runs won’t feel the same without him. Uncle Coop loved his nieces and nephew, who babysitting was never a chore. He is survived by friends and family.

    Please accept my heartfelt condolences. We can look forward to the promise at Isaiah 25:8 – “God will swallow up death forever, Jehovah will wipe away the tears from all faces.” Death is an enemy that separates us from our loved ones. When Jesus promise of a resurrection is fulfilled, we will have the joy of seeing our loved ones resurrected (John 5:28, 29) and enjoy life the way our Grand Creator purposed for us…forever on earth. (Matthew 5:5)
