It is with hearts full of fond memories that we celebrate the extraordinary life of Cooper Anthony Honig. Cooper, who left us on June 7, 2024, at the tender age of 18, brought an infectious laugh and boundless creativity to all who knew him. He was the embodiment of friendliness and had a faith that could move mountains—or at least convince you he could solve a Rubik’s Cube blindfolded.

Early Life and Family

Born on December 22, 2005, in Bel Air, Maryland, Cooper was a beloved son to Christian Anthony Honig and Kimberly Ann Honig. He was a cherished brother to Mia Lynn, Carson David, and McKenzie Brooke. His grandparents,

Dave and Susan Cooper, and Tony and Deb Honig, adored him. He was also a dear nephew to Katie Scharpf and her fiancé Jeff Hawk, Derek Scharpf, Jill Zbikowski, and Bryan Zbikowski. Cooper was a cousin to Caleb, Peyton, Finley, Sam, and Elliette, and a great-grandson to Sam Costa and his wife Marj. His beloved dog, Marlee, will miss his tender care.

A Talented and Passionate Young Man

A recent graduate of North Harford High School, Class of 2024, Cooper excelled in many areas. His golf swing could put professionals to shame. He had an affinity for classical music and often hummed Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony.

Cooper had a passion for drawing, turning simple stick figures into high art. In the world of gaming, he was a superstar, often leaving competitors in the dust in Fortnite. His effortless charm and faith-filled spirit made him the kind of friend everyone wished they had.

Celebrating Cooper’s Life

Here’s to Cooper—our happy-go-lucky, Rubik’s-cube-solving, golf-whizzing, classical-music-humming, doodle-drawing, gaming superstar. Your tee time in the sky has no wait, and we know you’re already bringing smiles to the angels with your top-tier banter and sky-high high-fives. Keep the fairways green and the laughter rolling until we meet again.

Community Support and Memorials

A celebration of Cooper’s life will take place at a later date. Please check the family’s website for details as they become available. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Cooper’s name to the Brandon Tolson Foundation or the Mental Health Association of Maryland.

Cherished Memories

Kathleen Miller Thiess ordered a memorial tree in memory of Cooper. She shared her condolences, saying, “So very sorry to hear about your sweet boy. All of our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.”

Another friend shared, “My favorite memories with Cooper are unforgettable. We hung out a couple of years ago at his house, staying up late talking while our parents were outside by the firepit. Cooper spoke about his desire to play football.

His love for everything he did was immense. He was always the hardest working person in the room. Whether it was golf, being a son, a big brother, a friend, or just the best person he could be, Cooper gave it his all. He filled rooms with joy, laughter, love, compassion, and, most of all, smiles. He will always have a huge piece of my heart. We will never forget you, Cooper. Your love filled the hearts of many. See you again, sweet boy. I love you.”


Another friend recounted, “Cooper was the funniest and most caring person I have ever met. He spent a lot of time at the beach with me and two of my friends. His smile and laughter lit up the whole room. He never failed to make us laugh, whether he was doing flips on the beach, passing the football with new friends, or just showing his incredible sense of humor. He will be missed.”
