“Andrew McNab Cooper Sr., 60, of Cocoa Beach passed away on Tuesday, January 23rd of 2024.

In his early life, Andrew was born in Rockledge, FL where he learned for his love of the outdoors and animals, no matter the breed. Andrew loved deeply for animals and sought to care for the ones that no one else stepped up for. Nature is where he loved to be, whether in the water or trekking through the woods to find a wild boar to tame.

He attended Cocoa Beach High School and continued to live in the small town for most of his life. He is survived by his children, Andrew (Kaley), Kendel, and Madison Cooper. Furthermore, he is remembered by his brothers, Rhett and John and his mother, Patricia.

Even though Andrew hated to be in the pictures, he always made sure to smile when next to his little ones. Even if he closed his eyes and just did a goof smile accompanied by his bushy eyebrows (that he inherited from his father, Everett, who passed in the years prior).
Although to others he seemed stubborn, those who knew him could say that he had so much love to give, an amount that he sometimes struggled to apply. A personality that many maybe did not get to experience, but one that was there to shine light against the darkness he felt through struggles.

There will be no service to be held, but rather a remembrance done by his children to personally scatter him where he loved to be so he can finally be at peace.

If you so desire to donate something in his remembrance, please direct all donations and assistance to the local animal shelters and wildlife conservations, where Andrew would have been happiest.”
