Obituary

     Jack “Cooper” Benjamin Bates, 38 years young, left this earth on November 26, 2022. Cooper was born on October 9, 1984 in Jerome, Idaho to Sandee and Kent Bates.

     Cooper was raised in Southern Idaho and had many friends all over. He made friends wherever he went.

     Growing up he enjoyed helping his grandpa Jack on the farm and really loved his early morning flights with grandpa. He had a love for everything outdoors, fishing with grandma and his brother and sisters. He was always so full of energy and life.

     In school Cooper enjoyed playing sports and was a great ball player.  He graduated high school from Hagerman in 2003 “#Shota Blan Hoo Rah!” After high school he attended Northwest Nazarene University in Nampa, Idaho on a full basketball scholarship. He quickly returned home to support and help family after receiving news about Hannah’s cancer.

     Cooper then spent the rest of his years working in the farming and construction industry.

     He loved to travel especially to Arizona and the family cabins. Cooper J was always the life of the party and the funny guy. You always knew when Coop was in town.

     Cooper enjoyed spending time with his family and friends. He loved the role of being an uncle to his niece and nephews and being their “Uncle Dunk”. He loved his family and loved hard.

     He is survived by his mother – Sandee Bates of Hagerman, Idaho; his father – Kent (Rita) Bates of Hansen, Idaho; his oldest sister – Mekenzie (Randy) McDaniel of Clark Fork, Idaho; his big brother – Blake Bates of Twin Falls, Idaho; grandparents – Jack and Barbara “G-Baby” Gough of Bliss, Idaho. His grandma – LaRae Curtis of Twin Falls, Idaho; his niece – Maci Morris and nephews – Cade Morris and Hudson McDaniel; and his many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

     Cooper is preceded in death by his little sister – Hannah Brooke; his great grandma – Sarah Gough “Grandma Grape” and his grandpa – Gordon Curtis.

     Cooper left us all with so many great laughs and memories that will never be forgotten.  

     Funeral services will be held at 2:00 pm on December 1, 2022, at Demaray Funeral Service –Gooding Chapel.
