We became aware of the passing of PRPNW Alvin Cooper earlier this year today. Shipmate Cooper served as the NW Regional President in 1980-81 and had been a member of Cherry City Branch #374 of Salem, OR.

He served only 6 months of his term and stepped down due to health issues. His successor, PRPNW Irma Price was the association’s first woman to hold national office.

Rest your oars Shipmate, we have the watch.
