Chuck Cooper was a truly wonderful man, a great teacher who loved his career. I will miss him.

Best Teacher ever!

Cost you a hundy to see my pretty face

I attended the memorial service for Chuck yesterday. I was moved by all of the school staff who took the time out of their day to come and pay their respects to Chuck and show their support for Mrs. Cooper. He will be missed by many. He was more than an instructor. He was one of the many people who helped to create a family atmosphere at NWTI. People helping to put a human face on the institute. Families argue amongst themselves from time to time, but at the end of the day, they're still family. I am happy to be a part of it.

Yes Chuck will be truly missed, great man, excellent instructor rest well sir!

"Some Phleeno was here before me!"

“That’s enough of me yelling at you, let’s take a breather”. Man was a genius!

“You have no idea what you’re doing!? Move out the way and lemme make that money” always a good one. Condolences to family and friends chuck was a great mentor, had so much to give, learned a lot from this guy!

"This some Cool Stuff!"

Be sure not to be a phloon

Best Teacher Ever

Cold Weather season "Who ordered this crap?!"

"You cant have negative chuckie bucks"!!!! Or my personal favee...... "I caaaaant handle it"

Thank You to everyone who has, thus so far, signed NWTIs 'Tribute Wall' for my Husband Charles Cooper. His Memorial will be held tomorrow and the Military will honor him, for his service with the Air Force. WE ALL LOVED CHARLES AND HIS PRESENCE WILL BE VERY DEARLY MISSED BY ALL WHO KNOW AND LOVED HIM. He was/is a very Sweet, Sincere, Honest, Loyal Man, and Husband to me. Thank you all for your thoughtful, sympathy, sentiments to me and to his Children, Grandchildren, and Great-Grandchildren. I am printing out these pages for posterity. THANK YOU AGAIN.///Mrs. Charles Cooper.😭

RIP to 1 hell of a instructor

Good man god bless him.

Omg this is crazy i just talked to him the other day. RIP Mr. Cooper

R.l.P .Mr. Cooper

I think it's fair to say that Chuck Cooper, was, to many of us, a revered, iconic figure at our institution. It is my humble opinion, that when NWTI hired Chuck, they hit the lottery. We have some great instructors at our school. I'm probably not one of them. I respect all of our instructors, and in no way would ever want to offend any of them. I think however, that for some of us, Chuck set a standard that we endeavored to live up to. I know that I certainly have. There were one or two times when I was feeling almost defeated, after reading student evaluations that Chuck was kind enough to give me some sage advice; " Bob, you can't let that get you down. I've had some vicious one's. You're a good instructor. Just keep doing what you're doing, and you'll be fine." How could I ever forget someone who would take the time to show me that kindness?

R.I.P 😥

Down to earth and humble but extremely knowledgeable. Greatly appreciated the time I had with Chuck. I promise not to be a floon!

I was apart of his last class and i had a very close connection with Chuck. He would bring ancient learning manuals just for me to look at. I learned a lot in his troubleshooting class. I will honor him by turning the knowledge he passed onto me into great skill. I will some day pass it on to my son Emiliano. Rest easy Chuck i promise i wont contribute to "Floonism"!

I seen him before but I never had his class. I’m in the beginning.

R.I.P. Mr. Cooper

RIH Chuck great instructor

Rip

One of the best

Rest in peace chuck what a hell of a guy.

Really gonna miss him

Exactly. Sail on smoother seas Chuck.

It is with a heavy heart that I pass on the very sad news that Chuck Cooper passed away yesterday evening. Chuck has been a member of the Northwestern Tech family since 1997. During that time, Chuck has touched thousands of lives and will be missed tremendously by everyone who has had the privilege to spend time with him. I personally feel very fortunate that I was able to work alongside Chuck for the entire 22 years he was here at Northwestern Tech. His wife Cathleen has indicated that she will provide memorial information once arrangements are complete. Please keep Chuck and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

Rest In Peace Chuck…

Charles ("Chuck") was my BELOVED HUSBAND. He died suddenly after a short severe illness (4 day duration). I appreciate all the "FANTASTIC" and Loving Sentiments everyone has so far expressed. I miss him so much, just as you all miss him. I was there today for NWTI "CHUCK COOPER DAY". I want to thank you ALL for celebrating my HUSBAND. He Loved his WORK with this school, ALL the INSTRUCTORS, ALL the STAFF, and ALL the STUDENTS he came in contact with. He was a dedicated man who loved NWTI !! THANK YOU AGAIN (that was emphases, not screaming) .

Im so very sorry for your loss 💔 I'm sure my brother Shawn is welcoming him to heaven❤

There are no words that I can find that would help to lessen the pain of such an overwhelming loss. I had the distinct privilege of sitting through several of Chucks classes. I hung on his every word. He was not only one of the most intelligent men, I've ever met in our arena, he had a distinct, unique way of delivering the information, so that when the student left his classroom, he, or she had a thorough understanding of the subject matter. Sometimes gruff, but always with the students best interest at heart. I learned from Chuck, I emulated some of his classroom skills. Not always, but on occasion, we would sit and talk. We were two years apart in age and shared similar concerns. Somehow, we will all have to work through our grief, because the school that he loved so much will be a different place. I will miss him.

NO WAY!!! Wow shocked one of the most knowledgeable people, I’ve ever had the chance to meet! Chuck you will be missed greatly RIP Sir!! My prayers and condolences are with the family 🙏🏽

RIP CHUCK, YOU WERE TRULY ONE OF THE GREATEST IN THE FIELD, ALONE SIDE LEONARD, AND WHO COULD FORGET JERRY! MY CONDOLENCES TO THE FAMILY AND NORTHWESTERN TECH! MUCH LOVE.

Chuck had a huge influence on my academic and professional life. His passing is going to leave a huge void in so many ways. He will truly be missed. Rest in Peace Chuck.

I have had the pleasure of working with Chuck for 10 years. My heart hurts. Praying deeply for his family and all of us affected by this loss.

Rest In Peace

R.I.P. Chuck I was lucky enough to have him as a teacher and to learn how not to be a "PHLOON" 😅😢. My condolences to his family and friends.

It feels as if we have lost a piece of Northwestern Technical Institute, and it will be a long, hard journey to work through the grief that this loss has forced us to endure. I had no idea how much I cared for this wonderful man.

So sorry for your loss. My husband spoke highly of him and considers him a good friend.

Rest in peace Chuck. Sending prayers

Rest In Peace

One of my favorite instructors there. My condolences

Rip Chuck condolences to his family
