Cooper Brougher III of Grapevine passed away Sunday morning, October 10, 2021 surrounded by loved ones. He was 91 years young. Cooper was born in Decatur, Alabama on December 7, 1929 to Cooper Brougher, Jr. and Pansy Valentine Brougher. He was an only child. He moved many times as a child because his father was a Lt. Colonel in the Army. He always said that gave him lots of new friends. He went to 13 different schools in 12 years. Cooper went to Tennessee Tech but was then drafted into the Army Air Corp where he went on to be a flight instructor and Drill Sargent. He finished college at The University of Louisville. Following college he went to work for Phillip Morris in Louisville, KY while starting his family with Patricia Ann Olsen. They moved their family to Dallas, Texas because their son needed to be in a warmer climate. He began his career at Texas Instruments, which he enjoyed for many years. Cooper then decided to strike out on his own and proceeded to earn numerous insurance licenses. He opened his own property and casualty business which rapidly began to thrive. Around 1972, Cooper joined with partners to form a new company called TBA Insurance. He was the vice president in charge of sales. He was an extremely gifted salesman and was able to secure accounts with the biggest banks in Texas. He remained with TBA until the early1990’s, when he retired.
He married Brenda Ault Methvin in 1992. They were happy and inseperable until her sudden death in 2003. He is survived by Darcy Leigh Taylor, Cooper Brougher IV and Patricia Karen Lohden. He is also survived by his two grandchildren Jordan Leigh Hardin, Phillip Cooper Perkins, and three great grandchildren Jaxsen, Julliette and Jasper. He has two stepchildren, Tracey Shuck and Tanya Levescy. He was proceeded in death by his stepson Todd Methvin.
Cooper was hard working and goal oriented. He lived by the motto “Nothing’s Easy.” He was good man with a loving heart who was always happy as long as he knew his kids were “Doin’ Good.” We hope you are having fun “dinking around” with Brenda, Grandmama and Granddaddy!
