  1. My Deepest Sympathies to John’s family & friends. I had the pleasure of working with “Coop” from about 1980 to 1999 at Yellow Freight in St Louis & “Happy Hours” after work which sometimes was 6am (working 10:30pm shift). “Coop” was so much fun to be around whether it was work, after work, at our Retiree’s Christmas get together at Fast Eddie’s, or at our golf tournaments with Yellow Freight. Rest In Peace my Brother, you are & will be missed.

  2. Coop was the best! Always very pleasant to be around. I will always be grateful for having met him and getting to know him. I’m sad that he is gone, but I’m happy he was here. RIP Coop! We’ll see each other again.

  3. Hey buddy. RIP. Now for the important stuff. Golf, beer and tequila. Go get Frank. Fergie, Boozi, Charlie and Foley–and play endless golf and drink all the beer you want. You need two more for two foursomes–you can do it.
    Be happy and enjoy like there is no tomorrow. Will miss you but not forget you.
    Later buddy.

  4. My deepest sympathy to Tess, Sarah, and Johnny, I don’t even know where to begin, your dad was such a special friend, he will always have a special place in my heart… love you all, and am here if there is anything I can do. ❤️🙏🙏🙏
