Mayor sends condolences to family and friends of Harry Cooper

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Springfield Mayor Ken McClure sends his condolences to the family and friends of the late Harry Cooper, one of Springfield’s most well-known businessmen and third-generation owner of Harry Cooper Supply Company.


“Harry was a good man who set a great example for business and civic engagement in our community. He did so much for Springfield and will be missed. His legacy, however, lives on,” Mayor McClure said.


Mr. Cooper was the primary donor and namesake of Cooper Park, including the Lake Country Soccer fields, Killian Sports Complex and Cooper Tennis Complex. He also purchased the Springfield Lasers pro tennis team for the Park Board in 1996. The team has played at Cooper Tennis Complex since its establishment.


The Cooper family is foremost in the thoughts and prayers of the City of Springfield, Springfield-Greene County Park Board and Springfield Lasers staff.
