Cooter graduated from Quinlan High School and worked for a short in Terrell. He spent more than 40 years working in Greenville at the original Temco, E-Systems, and Raytheon. Before his retirement he worked in Parts Control. He worked there during the 20 years the plant held the contract for the Presidential Fleet. He always loved the outdoors, pickup trucks, rodeos, horseracing, and taking care of his horses. He expressed many times that everyone should own some land and he purchased a farm near Lone Oak many years ago. His friends Gary and Terry Dooley, have in the past and now continue to care for Cooter's five horses. Cooter was a loving brother and son. He was especially fond of and dedicated to his mother, Leona. He was a very private person, always had a smile, and had only positive things to say about friends and family. He will be missed and will always share a special place in all our hearts. Though he had no children of his own, at Christmas he usually had a niece, nephew, or grandchild on his knee. He leaves us dozens of memories and special moments shared through the years. Serving as pallbearers are Terry Dooley, Gary Dooley, Jerry Morrison, Billy Lynn, David Patton, Phil Young.
