Nicholas Cole Cooper

Nick was born on March 21, 1999, in Ithaca, NY. On May 22, 2021, he lost his lifelong battle with depression and chose to end his pain in King Ferry, NY. 

Nick graduated from Lansing High School in June 2017. He was an avid D & D player and computer gamer. He had a very creative mind and was a truly gentle soul. He rarely said much, but when he did, he often was making someone laugh. 

Nick is survived by his father Thomas F. Cooper, mother Jennifer Carlton-Cooper, sister Ashli Wilson, brother-in-law Benjamin Wilson, niece Payton Wilson, paternal grandmother Barbara Cooper, maternal grandparents Richard & Linda Carlton, uncles Brian Cooper, Jack (Victoria) Cooper & Jonathan (Lisa Everts) Carlton, cousin Dannielle (Kaitlin) Younes, brother-by-heart Christopher (Jasmond) Pratt, a large extended family and a close knit group of friends. He was predeceased by his paternal grandfather Albert Cooper.

Calling hours will be held Sunday, May 30, 2021, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. with a memorial service immediately following at Lansing Funeral Home, 32 Auburn Road, Lansing, NY 14882. Services will be officiated by Rev. Phil Jordan and livestreamed at: https://client.tribucast.com/tcid/1484949786. Please dress comfortably as Nick would have done.

Please do not send flowers; Nick would hate the smell of them. He lost his battle but we want others to keep beating theirs.  Please consider contributions in Nick’s memory to American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP) P.O. Box 74 Freeville, NY 13068 or online at https://afsp.donordrive.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.participant&participantID=2413150

I can remember when he was four or five on his birthday and Red called me to imitate johnny bravo the cartoon character for him because he liked that show. Although I haven't seen him in years my heart breaks for Nick and family. This disease hits close to home for many and always is so hard to understand and words can't explain. All my love to Red and Jen. Your in my thoughts and prayers brother from another mother.

I remember the day Tom and Jen discovered they were pregnant for Nicholas, it was on our wedding day. Jen fainted, the ambulance was called . Not many weddings are blessed with an ambulance but ours was.
Prayers going out to you all from the bottom of our hearts. Tenna, Denis, Tyler and Dakota Bixler
