Quinn Glen Cooper enjoyed theater and martial arts. He was an extremely funny, smart and compassionate person. He was always the first to stand up for someone else his family said. His mother started a Facebook page called ‘Make Your Ripples Count’ based on the idea that small act of kindness ripple through our interactions to impact others.
Quinn lived this out by the way he treated everyone around him. Close friends of Quinn’s said he could always make them laugh. He was always the first to offer comfort when needed.
A friend of Quinn remembers him being the only member of a theater group to offer his help when the young man broke down rehearsing for a play. Quinn wasn’t just a friend, he was a ‘brother’ the young man said. To Quinn, strength meant being genuine and caring. He had plans to take his brown belt in karate and continue pursuing a college education.
