<div itemprop="description">Cooper, William Robert (Bill) <br><br>July 12, 1933 - April 12, 2017 <br><br><br>Bill; husband, dad, grandfather, brother, friend passed away peacefully. He is survived by Joan, his wife of 62 years, daughter Carmen (Steve), grandchildren Gordon (Marta), Kevin (Michelle) and Lauren (Sean) and great granddaughter Lili. He is pre deceased by his son Darren, brother Dick and great granddaughter Maya. Bill was born in Calgary yet lived around the globe. He was a Petroleum Engineer from Oklahoma University and enjoyed an international Oil & Gas career that concluded in Calgary. Schlumberger, Asamera, and Bow Valley Energy benefitted from his efforts. When not working, Bill could be found on the golf course in the summer and on the ski hill in the winter. He was known to shoot his age throughout his retirement, where he was an avid golfer in both Calgary and California. Bill travelled the world for both business and pleasure and was well known for living the adage "it doesn't matter what you do, it matters what you do about it". He was an articulate leader with a flavour for funny! In honouring Bill's request, there will be no funeral service. Lovingly remembered and always respected. Donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation. <br></div>
