The Curry Coastal Pilot

On Feb. 8, 2012, Harold went to be with our heavenly father.

He was born March 24, 1932, in Brookings.

He married Lorraine Olson Sept. 10, 1960. They were married 51 years. The couple had four daughters, 11 grandchildren and four great-grandchildren, although he was a father to many more than his daughters.

He was a devoted and loving father, husband and friend. He worked hard to give his family everything they wanted. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, spoiling his girls and working on cars. He will be greatly missed.

He leaves behind his wife Lorraine E. Cooley of Brookings; daughter and son-in-law Kim and Rich Weaver of Brookings; daughters Patty and Christina Cooley of Salem; grandchildren Heather and Mike Sanders, Christopher Edwards, Tomas Weaver, Takoda Scott, Anthony Cooley, Jadah Scott, Alexis Cooley, Shyla Roblero, Mateo Roblero; and great- grandchildren Mikey, Jayden, Layloni and Brooklyn Sanders.

A celebration of life will be at a later date.
