Neal L. Cooper, veteran, medical rep, real estate agent, golfer, father

A funeral service will be held on Thursday, July 23, at 11 a.m. at Park Valley Church in Haymarket for Neal L. Cooper, 93, who passed away July 10, 2020 at his home with his wife and family by his side. Neal was a long time resident of Virginia Oaks Community in Gainesville.  He was an avid golfer, gardener and bridge player.

While Neal’s longevity could be attributed to “good genes,” it is very likely that his kind nature, healthy lifestyle and easygoing ways had more to do with his living until the age of 93.  Neal was unflappable and navigated the ups and downs of life with humility, grace and humor.
Neal was born in Chattanooga, TN February 12, 1927. He served in both World War II, in Germany, and in the Korean War.  He graduated from University of Tennessee in Chattanooga, TN  then went on to earn an M.B.A. from Columbia University in New York.

After working with GE for several years, Neal joined the Mettler Corporation, a Swiss company that developed medical instruments. He represented Mettler for over 30 years. When he retired from Mettler, he become a real estate agent and investor in Northern Virginia.

Neal is survived by his sons, Alan and Doug, of Sunapee, NH, as well as his wife, Helene Cooper and his sister, Virginia Lovejoy, of Glendale, CA. Neal is also survived by Helene’s five children, Greg Corradino and his wife Kippy,  Michael Corradino and his wife Jeanne, Ron Corradino and his wife Sharon,  Sebastian Corradino and his wife Tegan and MaryLynne Rabic and her husband Randy.

He is also survived by his 13 grandchildren and two great-grandchildren.
