Obituary for Willis Edward Cosper

Mr. Willis E. Cosper, 79, of Summerville, passed away Tuesday, June 9, 2020, at his home.

Mr. Cosper was born September 8, 1940, in Hogansville, son of the late William Alton Cosper and Clara Caldwell Cosper. A veteran of service in the U.S. Army Reserve Artillery, he earned his Bachelors degree from Berry College, lived in Rome most of his life, and was a retired real estate investor. He loved his children and their families, considered his sister to be his best friend, and enjoyed the simple things in life. As he struggled with dementia for several years, he enjoyed riding through the countryside and considered his son in-law, Dave McNeese to be his best buddy and riding partner.

Survivors include his children, John and Shanna Cosper of Elberton,
Felicia and David McNeese of Summerville, Jason and Carrie Cosper of Cave Spring, Jonah and Brandi Cosper of Rome,; grandchildren, Zack, JC, Jackson, and Bryson Whitlock, Christian Winn, Nick McNeese, Jake, Jada, and Josie Cosper, Chelsey Hicks, JJ, Jackson, Judson, and Camden Cosper, and Tyler Wear; six great-grandchildren; his sister, Janis Davison of LaGrange and her daughters, Paige Cason, Tracy Gynther, and Amy Strickland.

A graveside service will be conducted at 2:00 p.m., Friday, June 12, in Myrtle Hill Cemetery in Hogansville, with the Reverend Terry Rainwater and Judy Dishman officiating.
