Celebrating Nine Decades of a Truly Storied Life

Our founder and colleague Kenneth H. Cooper, MD, MPH, turns 90, on March 4, 2021. Join us as we celebrate all things fitness, research, prevention, compassion, integrity, excellence and service.

Known as the "father of aerobics," Dr. Cooper has dedicated his 64-year medical career to investigating the links between cardiorespiratory fitness, good health and longevity. He has helped millions improve the quality and quantity of people’s lives.

He has spent his life making a difference and you can, too!

  • Dear Dr. Cooper, It's months past your March birthday, so I apologize that I am just now running across this opportunity to wish you a Happy Belated 90th Birthday. One of the greatest gifts in my life, was when you took me in as a new patient in one of your rare moments of having an opening. God knew I needed your help, and your diagnosis/insight solved my issue, plus put me on a path to much greater health which I continue to maintain. A zillion thank yous would not be enough to express my appreciation for all that you did for me, and do for everyone around you. You genuinely care, for each person that you know, and want the best for their well being. Your life is a blessing, and I am grateful to God, to have had the opportunity to be under your great and genuine care for my well being. Thank you for your dedication, inspiration, and most importantly, being a radiant light as a Christian through your profession.

  • Thank you for inspiring me, my parents, and countless others around the world, to keep moving! Thank you for "Aerobics," for the incredible team and entities you lead, and for continuing to pave the way for a long, happy, healthy life.

    Colby Baer

  • Happy happy birthday. Your book changed my life. I was a thin kid who got married at 25, I gained pounds by 30 and was having trouble going on a diet. I read your book in 68 it motivated me to start running. I lost 40 lb , and have run over 70,000 miles. Since 71 I have run or walked almost everyday.

    David Stark

  • Dr. Cooper, I'd like to wish you my congratulations for your healthy and long life! I teach Physical Education and Coach Soccer and Swimming at Geffen Academy at UCLA. I also want to thank you for your work about Aerobic training, which was the main reason for me choose the profession I love today. God Bless you longer and healthier life.

    Flavio Ribeiro

  • Hey Ken, I studied your book in the early 80s and continue to enjoy the great health and positive benefits of 20min aerobics. I'm 64 and crushing it! Thank you so much for the amazing body of work,research and heart you pored into all this. Happy Belated Birthday

    David White

  • Happy 90th birthday Dr. Cooper! You are a great inspiration for many people. All the best!

    Bozidar Malesevic

  • Dr. Cooper, When you first came to Dallas, you put an ad in the paper, inviting everyone to meet you in the Highland Park High School parking lot, where we would take the 12-minute fitness test. A few people showed up, one took a picture of you and me, we took the test. I bought your "Aerobics" book. I hope you have the best birthday ever! You probably do not remember me. What kind of pictures do you like? Animals, people, landscaping, etc.?! I would like to send you a birthday present through the mail.

    Jackie Hart

  • Dr. Cooper...The Health and Wellness Network of Commerce wishes you a wild and wonderful Happy Birthday! And, may God continue to bless the work of your hands and heart - even more than last 9 decades! You are greatly loved, appreciated and respected beyond what mere words can express.

    Veronica Jones

  • Happy belated birthday!! Your book Faith-Based Fitness meant a lot to me. I just got it back off my shelf to read again! Thank you for inspiring me and so many people.

    Dianne Daniels

  • Happy 90th Birthday Dr. Cooper! May the Lord bless you with lots of love, joy, laughter, and time with your favorite people!!

  • So sorry I’m late with a Happy Birthday wish. You have meant so much to so many people. Hope you have many more years of inspiring people to be healthier.

    Julien Roper

  • Happy 90th birthday Dr. Cooper!! What a wonderful inspiration you truly are! I had the honor of meeting you during our company’s health conference at The Cooper Institute for Alliance Data several years ago. I really wish I could focus on exercising more for myself but I’ve been so busy caring for both of my aging parents in their mid-80s. My dad has Parkinson’s and is bedridden and my mom is a two-time cancer survivor but a very strong-willed lady for such a short fragile woman!! Maybe some day I’ll be able to focus on me. Again such a pleasure meeting you in person and I hope you are enjoying your 90th celebration this year. You look awesome!!!! Thanks for all your encouragement!!

    Tracy M.

  • Dr. Cooper, please accept our good wishes for a wonderful 90th birthday. We are First-Year Students at the University School of Physical Education in Wroclaw (Poland / Europe). The 12-minute fitness test you created is very popular at our University. Best wishes from the Students (D-8 group / Department of Physical Education)

  • Dear Dr Cooper, Greetings from Singapore. I came to know about you and aerobic exercise in 1989. That information changed me for the better and made me a lifelong advocate of the Kenneth Cooper approach to health and wellness through correct exercise. Over the years I "morphed" from computer geek to sports and exercise therapist. I quit smoking and drinking and am on a primarily plant based diet. Thank you for the greatest gift one human can give another - the means to take control of your destiny. Have a Blessed 90th Birthday.

    Rodney Hogan

  • Dr Cooper, I had the pleasure and honor to talk with you last Thursday while you were faithfully working out. For the last 12 plus years, I have been a patient of your wellness clinic and a patient of Dr. Riva Rahl. When I fly in from Atlanta, I know I will get to see you if I am in the club at 5 p.m. You truly are a leader among leaders and certainly demonstrate by example. My nutritionist, Gillian White, I ran into literally working out before she started work and during lunch on the track. Dr. Rick Wilson and now Dr. Gottesman are also world class as you know. The business community in Atlanta knows my passion about going to the Cooper Clinic and training for the stress test! I would have been a better leader if I would have taken just one day for my preventive exam as it provides a roadmap for how to age backwards! Cheers to you Dr. Cooper for helping ME be a better ME. Happy Birthday for all of 2021!

    Kathleen Dowling

  • Dear Dr. Cooper, I read your book in 1978 when I was 28. I began jogging and stuck with it. It became an indispensable part of my life. I was never interested in marathons and all that and I confess I don't really enjoy weight training. But I still jog/power walk for an hour 3-4 times a week. I am now 71, healthy, normal weight, sleep well. I credit you for your wonderful book introducing me to Aerobics. Thank you SO much! I hope you had a wonderful birthday. In your pictures it looks like you're still going strong!

    Jamie Head

  • Dr. Cooper, So enjoyed your presentation at Ventana today and totally agree with your entire strategy. I have had five relatives with dementia which now includes my husband. I know his lifestyle had a huge impact in his Alzheimer's progress. I follow all your recommendations and am considering joining your clinic. I wish you a very happy 90th! You are an inspiration to us all! Blessings to you.

    Cari Martin

  • Happy Birthday Dr. Cooper! Your book, Aerobics, changed my Life. I've been running steady for 54 years. I've influenced others to run and it changed their lives too! Thanks for a great life!!

  • Dr. Cooper, Happy 90th birthday 🥳!!! I had the great honor of meeting & working w/ you, Dr. Steven Blair & Ruth Ann Carpenter, RDN, as a CI post-graduate Intern after completing my Masters in Kinesiology in 2004. It was surely one of the highlights of my professional career. I remember you saying in one of your lectures that you planned to “Square off the curve,” like your mother did. I do believe you will do just that! God Bless You & Keep You!” BRG the RD”

    Rachel Wang

  • Hi Dr. Cooper. I am 82 years old and been following your program off and on since 1976. For a period I got in the “excellent” category and felt wonderful. Probably now the “fair” category - still ok. But it’s about you. Happy birthday and thank you for your programs and a common sense way to measure fitness. I read “the Cooperized" each month with much enjoyment. Again best wishes to you, your family and team. Regards from an Aussie fan. Wow!!! 90 now that’s a great achievement.

    Brian Whitelaw

  • One Month Late! Dear Friend, because of you (and your wonderful Family) our World is a Healthier place. You have used your Wisdom, Example, and deep Faith to inspire the ‘rest of us’.

You also have such a kind heart and even though it has been a long time since you have been to Nebraska your words and willingness to spread the word everywhere are appreciated. I wish you continued health and happiness and have fun biking!

    Cindy Kugler

  • Dr. Cooper!!!! Happy Healthy 90 years strong my wonderful mentor! Your lecture at Slippery Rock University many many years ago inspired my journey that is now Walk at Home workouts! I am a Cooper Certified Group Exercise Instructor and was humbled and honored to have you motivate our Walkers in one of our video workouts many years ago! May God continue to bless you, your family and your urgent mission! LOVE LOVE LOVE

    Leslie Sansone

  • Dr. Cooper, best wishes to you on your 90th Birthday! You have made a big difference in my life. Drs. Mitchell and McFarlin and the "Cooper Team" have provided my annual physical for 22 years. You have truly improved the quality of my life. Best wishes for another healthy and productive year.

    Michael Shonka

  • Happy Birthday and thank you for what you have done with my life. I classify myself as a original Cooper Pooper. I had a health issue in 1969. Took out high risk insurance as I thought the end was near. Went thru all the test and found out I was not going to die. I was 35 years old, trying to build a building and development business. Smoked, drank and weighed 285 at 6’4. My insurance man gave me your first book. I sat at the kitchen table at 4 in the am reading and trying to run. Took me almost 6 mo. to cover a mile non stop. Two years later I was rated back to normal and down came the insurance. I am religious to the point program and still hop on my air-dyne for a quick workout. Over the years I have done marathons and century’s The base line for my point total each week is 48. My Dr. who is a HMD (Dr Frank Shallenberger) says I am amazing after each annual physical. I am 87 years old. Thanks again Dr. Cooper. from a faithful “Cooper Pooper

    Rodney Osterlund

  • Dr. Cooper, it has been a blessing to work for you all these years cleaning the windows at your house to make sure you always have a clear outlook on life. God bless you and Millie may His peace rest on you and your family.

    Michael Newkirk

  • Happy Birthday from the gal from Pauls Valley, OK! I have loved being a member at Cooper since '97, chatting with you about your days in Pauls Valley interning under Dr. James Lindsey, my leading your son in Young Life back in the late 80s, praying for mutual friends (Joe White) and seeing you age with grace and dignity. What a joy it’s been to have a front row seat of your accomplishments and your contributions to the health of the American people! Here’s to many more great years and accomplishments!

    Shari Macfee

  • Happy Birthday Month Dr. Cooper - thanks for being an inspiration!

    Susan Wisch

  • Happy a Birthday! Thank you for representing Putnam City so very well! I am proud to say you are an alum of our great district!

    Cindy Gibbs

  • In the early 1960s when I went into my Ophthalmology practice in Preston Center, I began hearing of Dr. Kenneth Cooper also entering practice in Preston Center. I found his book on aerobic exercise. After reading Dr. Cooper’s book, I was certain his concepts were valid and favorable for health. Not long after I scheduled a physical which included a stress test. I barely made it into the “fair” category. I began exercising and made a vow to return every 2 years and beat Ken's stress test time since he is only 6 month older. I started running and I have kept it up ever since. All of this because of the influence of Ken Cooper. As I observe runners today, I am certain it is because of the influence Ken Cooper has had on running and aerobic exercise. Thank you, Ken, for the many years of dedication you have given to your profession and the improvement of health of many who put their sneaker to the pavement. Happy Birthday!

    Charles Key

  • Happy birthday, Dr. Cooper! It was an absolute honor to work at the Cooper Fitness Center as a personal trainer and a highlight of my life to actually meet you, Dr. Cooper, the "Father of Modern Aerobics!" Your bravery, perseverance, genuine care, and tireless work ethic have, literally, changed the world, countless lives, and our knowledge of exercise forever. Perhaps even more astounding, your humble and kind nature place you in a realm all your own. Thank you, Doctor Cooper! Happy, happy birthday!

    Stephanie Rosenberg

  • Dear Dr. Cooper, I do wish you all the best, a lot of health and further happy and fulfilled years. Thanks to you my life is ruled by fitness activities always in mind how many points I made with the latest exercise, during one week, ... With an age of 14 or 15 I read your book Aerobics in the early 80s. I was an unsportive boy and turned to be a triathlete! Thank you for this change in mind! Sportive greetings and best wishes to you!

    Heiko Heinisch

  • Happy Birthday! It has been such a treat and a great honor to get to know you, Millie and Cooper Clinic this past year. You are an inspiration and inspire me to not only live a healthier life but to be a better person. Thank you for contributing so much to society and providing us with the tools and education to live our best and healthiest life. We admire and look up to you!

    Michelle Taylor

  • Hi Dr. Cooper, On behalf of all of us here at the Medical Fitness Association, we wish you a belated Happy Birthday! Thank you so much for all you have done for the fitness industry and to keep people healthy!!

    Mariann Murphy

  • Happy Birthday Dr. Cooper. I was part of the AAC Director Team back in the early to mid 80s. As an Associate Physical Director I taught group fitness (or as referred Aerobic dance,) and directed the Strength Training programming. Being associated with the Cooper Fitness Center and Aerobics Activity Center was life changing. Your inspiration as a leader and innovator in Wellness, Fitness and Research was and still is cutting edge in delivering what the world and fitness industry needs to stay grounded in the original Aerobics culture.

    Paul Schoenberg

  • Happy Birthday. Your clinic saved my life. They found a cancerous tumor in my lung.

    Michael Smiley

  • I am joining health professionals, sportsmen and sportswomen from all around the world in wishing Dr. Cooper happy 90th birthday! I wish that his vision of a more active and healthy society becomes even more widespread across the United States and beyond! His dedication and work were always true inspiration to me personally and to the Hungarian School Sport Federation. It was his Cooper Institute that helped us with developing our health-focused national fitness assessment system which is already in use since 2015 and which provides essential longitudinal data on the health fitness of Hungarian students. I do hope that such great achievements give Dr. Cooper further strength and endurance to keep fulfilling his dream. Hungarian School Sport Federation

  • I’m so sorry this is a belated birthday wish, but I want you to know that you are without a doubt the most wonderful man... you saved my husband Jack’s life and in doing so you saved mine (what would I do without him?!) There are no words that can ever express how grateful I am to you!!! Happy Birthday to the most genuinely wonderful man ever!! We love you,

    Denise and Jack McClelland

  • Happy Birthday Dr. Cooper!!! 🎉. Thank you for founding a place focusing on wellness. Others treat illness, creating Cooper Clinic that is focused on wellness so we can remain healthy is a gift. Like everyone’s grandmother always said “when you have your health you have everything” is so true.

    Shannon Bernard

  • Happy belated birthday

    Gary Moores

  • Wishing you a wonderful 90th Birthday as you reflect on your life's work, family, friends, and the many experiences and opportunities that God has placed in your path. This is my 25th year working at the Cooper Fitness Center as a group exercise instructor. I am so very proud to be a part of your team, sharing the love of movement and the importance of connecting with the spirit, mind & body. Happy Birthday Dr. Cooper! I'm so grateful that "God isn't done with you yet!"

    Jill Samaniego

  • Dr. Cooper, It’s been a great pleasure, an education and an inspiration knowing you. You have been a large part of my life for over 50 years. From our introduction in 1969, via your “Aerobics” book, through your encouragement at my last check up to, “keep a close eye on the Mitral Value issue." While attending Boston Bouve’ College, your book was mandatory reading and many of the staff and students at Northeastern University, were inspired to participate in the Boston Marathon, due to your informative “preventive medicine” concept. Thanks for disseminating your thoughts and research to the masses. What a great gift you have given the world. Thank you for practicing what you preach and giving us all a great example of the rewards that can be received via fitness and life balance. Wishing you another decade of a healthy and happy life.

    Jim Steenbergen

  • It has been wonderful meeting with and learning from you. Growing up in Zimbabwe and South Africa, we referred to exercise as 'Aerobics'. Our school would give us wall posters for the cardio workout for all grades, and we enjoyed it with our school classmates. At home, I would do aerobics with my two older sisters. My kids in a Dallas school followed the FitnessGram, where they knew how the tests were administered and what the exercises were. Thank you for inspiring me to want to take care of my health and fitness, take supplements and vitamins, and make healthy lifestyle choices.

    Judy Castanheira

  • Happy Birthday! To the Doctor who helped change my life. I read Aerobics about 40 years ago and never looked back! Finally, I had science to apply to my exercise and health. I can measure efforts and see my progress and slacking.

    Michael King

  • Dear Dr. Cooper, With our best wishes for a very happy 90th birthday. We wish you health and happiness and consider ourselves lucky to know you. Be well,

    Arlin and Tobe Goldberg

  • Happy belated birthday! You are definitely an innovator and someone whose lifestyle deserves recognition! Congratulations on reaching a healthy 90 years young.

    Carla Swenson

  • You are a remarkable man! Happy birthday!

    Liz and Dick Uihlein

  • Dr. Cooper, Congratulations on your 90th birthday. As your Cooper neighbor at Alcuin School, I want to also say thank you for being a model and inspiration to our youth and the importance of being active throughout one's life.

    Walter Sorensen

  • Belated birthday greetings Dr. Cooper. I hope you celebrated well and look forward to many more. In the 1970s you certainly inspired me to recognize the value of aerobic exercise/fitness for/to health. In 1986 I was appointed as Great Britain's first Local Authority Community Fitness Officer, and whatever we did in our 'Wear Fit' Campaign always had your pioneering work in either the background or at the forefront. Our leisure team had the privilege of coming to one of your lecture presentations in Newcastle, England. Now I am retired, I try to practice some of what your ground-breaking research taught me, for health; being fit to help others; my Masters Athletics competitions. It keeps me motivated, and, as I am trying to follow your example, it is very much thanks to you! Best Wishes.

    Kevin Archer

  • Happy birthday, and God bless you! I read your book in the early 1970s, and I trained for track by using your point system! I had to run a certain number of points each week! I ran 90 miles per week as an 8th and 9th grader, and did very well! All the best.

    Len Nasser

  • Dr. Cooper - I hope you had a wonderful birthday!

    Cynthia Wood

  • Hope you had a great B-day. We are still running because of you. We worked at the Center in the 70s.

    Todd and Tricia Gent

  • Best wishes to Dr. Cooper on achieving your 90th birthday. I started aerobic exercising in 1968 and it has helped me attain my 90th birthday in December.

    Keith Dyas

  • Your positive impact on so many lives is an immeasurable achievement. My best wishes for your birthday. God Bless.

    Mason Andres

  • Dr. Cooper, way back in the '80s you treated our little, but frighteningly destructive, Indian Guide patrol with a steady and measured hand. Despite our efforts to build blazing 5-alarm fires or run around with torches in your backyard, I always felt welcome. Your leadership and work ethic are hallmarks, as you live out one of my dad's favorite quotes: "If you can fill the unforgiving minute with sixty seconds’ worth of distance run, Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it, And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!". While not everyone can fill 4 minutes of distance run with a full mile as you did, we can aspire to live a life as full as you are living. Another, more eternally enduring author, penned this verse I see you living out, "For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for all things, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come." I'm thankful for your leadership in both these areas, which have blessed many. Happy birthday!

    Will Thomas

  • Happy birthday, Dr. Cooper! Whether you've known it or not, you've been an example and mentor to for over thirty years. Your example of a life lived with the right priorities in mind (faith, family, purpose) have taught me and others so much about a life well-lived. Thank you for the gift of your family, the gift of your example, and the gift of countless meals throughout the years! Wishing you all the best on your 90th.

    Mason and Jen Griffin

  • Dr. Cooper, Happy Birthday! Sorry I did not see this till today. I pray you had a wonderful and fulfilling birthday. I greatly appreciate the time you spent with me. Your writings and research have been part of my life since the early 1980s. The world is indeed a finer place having had you in it for the last 90 years. Let's hope your next 90 years is just as fruitful! Hey, think positive. Thank you for all that you do and for all you have done.

    Toban Thompson

  • Happy Birthday Dr. Cooper and thank you so much for all you have done to make our country a healthier society.

    Bart Holaday

  • Dr. Cooper, The best is yet to come. I have been privileged to see family and friends live to 90 and beyond. My Cherokee grandmother was 103 when she passed peacefully and strong in 2006. A farmer by trade. Working The Dallas Farmers markets for years kept her active and agile. I was so blessed to be able to take the last many years to be with her to keep her in the comfort of home. I wish I were in Texas to see you and how your own health system has brought you into your 90s. I can only imagine with poise. Grace. And ease. I am looking forward to that mark myself in the years to come. Many blessings fir the next 10-15 years ahead. With a little Texas Aloha,

    Gay Lynn Freeman

  • Happy Birthday, Dr. Cooper! It was a true honor for my colleagues and me to meet you at a healthy aging event several years ago! You and your wife were so kind to our group and we were thankful to get a photo to commemorate the time spent together! Wishing you continued health for many years to come!

    Dr. Beth Mack

  • It seems just like yesterday that we all met as Tyler and I went to Baylor. Since then, there are too many stories to tell. Touring all around Europe and countless ski trips to Beaver Creek. I will never forget our trip to Grand Cayman. Tyler and I spent the entire time in SCUBA class and each night we tried to stump you with facts that we just learned. You knew all the right answers and more! Countless dinners at your home with your family until one night when you looked up at me and said: Why are you always here? Do you have a home? So funny. You were kidding, right? All those years I learned so much from you and Mrs. Cooper. You modeled so many amazing Christ-like character traits: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Yes, you have been on a mission of wellness for all, but you have also been on a mission for Christ turning the hearts of man. Happy Birthday Dr. Cooper and thanks for making such a huge difference in my life.

    Michael Griffin

  • Happy happy birthday, Dr. Cooper!! You have been an amazing influence over the years on so many people, including myself! I read your Aerobics book in the early 70s, when I was around 14 or so. I started running and have loved running &/or some type of exercise ever since. I moved from Missouri to Texas to go to college (at Baylor) and ended up settling in Dallas. I've gone to a nutritionist at Cooper Clinic a couple of times over the years & they have helped me keep my cholesterol down with a better diet. I just wanted to thank you for the positive impact you've had on my life. Hope you have a wonderful time celebrating your birthday all year long! Wishing you the very best,

    Susan Ford

  • As Cooper Clinic patients, my wife and I often celebrate the preventive care that we have received for many years. Our lives are much improved because of it. We celebrate Dr. Cooper’s birthday; celebrate well .... he’s worth it. Romans 8:32.

  • All good wishes and blessings to you. I still remember when I jogged with you in Arizona when I was with the Indian Health Service. In the past I've sent my son Aaron to your clinic for educational training. My wife Helen and I get body scans almost every two years at your clinic.

    John Kutch

  • Happy Birthday Dr. Cooper! Going to your clinic is something I look forward to every year. Your staff does a great job challenging me to improve.

    Mike Kammerdiener

  • Happy Birthday Dr. Cooper. I enjoyed aerobics for many years at my local gym and wanted to thank you. My daughter and I will be staying at the Hotel in the second week of March. We are coming into town to celebrate my brother's 60th birthday. We all can take a lesson from you on continuing fitness as we age. You look fantastic. Thank you for your many years of community leadership!

    Maryjo Bielong

  • Happy Birthday Dr. Cooper! Amazing journey you are on! Thank you for all you have done to keep us healthy!

  • Happy Birthday, Doctor Cooper! I wish to thank you personally for your lifetime of service. Your contributions to medicine, and wellness in particular through your Clinic, have been invaluable to many, many people, including my husband and me. We both hope to enjoy a lifetime of vitality and mental acuity for years to come!

    Juli Pitra

  • Happy Birthday Dr. Cooper! Words can hardly express the impact you have made in my life in the precious moments I have been able to be in your presence. Not only have you changed the trajectory of my health (for which my family and I are so grateful), but by sharing your stories of faith and struggle, you have emboldened and encouraged the work of God in me. The churches that I will be able to serve and the lives they will touch will be multiplied as your stories have encouraged me to follow the call of God on my life with even more faith and vigor. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you for following God and being an example for others to do the same. I am grateful for your faithfulness to Jesus and your sensitivity to His call.

    Richard Reising

  • Happy Birthday Dr. Cooper! You are an exceptional doctor who leads by example. It is so nice to always see you at the Fitness Center working out.

    Meri Lynn McLandrich

  • Happy 90th Birthday Dr. Cooper! What a wonderful milestone birthday to celebrate! My husband, Ted, and I have been coming to Cooper Clinic for many years. Our care is top-notch and efficient, and the environment is positive and encouraging. Your entire team are role models for healthy living - they lead by example, which comes from the top! We feel Cooper Clinic is on "our team," celebrating our successes and truly wanting the best for us. Dr. Kettles is our biggest cheerleader and we practice her advice all year long. We have lost count of the number of people we have referred to Cooper Clinic, but your reach is wide. Our children have heard of our Cooper experiences for years, and I am quite sure they and their spouses will all choose to be patients as well. You have impacted generations. Thank you for having such a positive impact on our lives!

    Laurie Beneski

  • Dr. Cooper...Happy Birthday! My prayer is the Lord will continue to Bless You. Thinking of what a great man you are as I was wearing one of your Cooper tees yesterday under a black sweat shirt. (It was cold in Arkansas)... My husband and I are privileged to have met you 6 years ago. Thank you for your Kindness Dr. Cooper.

    Annette & Sam Bailey

  • Happy Birthday Dr Cooper! Do you remember in 1986 being interviewed in London by a *very* pregnant young English woman? After the article was published in Running magazine, you wrote me a sweet letter appreciating my accuracy and attention to detail. It’s a maxim I have stuck to throughout my working life. No fake news for me! I was recently diagnosed with Parkinson’s, which has given me a new focus and challenges. Exercise is a huge part of my life, thanks to you. I celebrate it on www.parkytracks.com. With very best wishes.

    Ali Turnbull

  • Happy B-Day Dr. Cooper and all the best forward .

    James Skibo

  • Happy birthday, Ken. It’s hard to believe we’ve known each other for 60 years. “Tempus fugit.” Martha and I are chasing your years. If we chased you on the road, we'd fall far behind without a bicycle or golf cart. If I reach 90, the exercise you inspired may have helped. Many happy returns.

    Leslie Klevay

  • Thank you for being Dr. Cooper to millions of people around planet earth!!! Well done!

    John Duncan

  • Happy 90th!!! My Father (born in 1913) lived past 93. He always did things in moderation. I hope you have a great Birthday and more to come. Thanks for starting a great clinic. Dr. Nelson is my Great Doctor.

    Frank Bilban

  • Dr. Cooper I can remember your movement started and you have helped so many people and have a staff of people that are the best. I have never found another place as caring and very very good like your people. May God bless you more years and continued good health. Happy Birthday.

    Len Freemyer

  • Dr. Cooper, I have been able to get to know you through my relationship with Tyler. We have been in YPO forum together for six years. One of my fondest memories of YPO was the father/son dinner we all shared together at Bob’s Steak and Chophouse. Your legacy in medicine and wellness will have an impact on our city and world for decades to come. After a few years of care at Cooper Clinic, I worked to make an annual Cooper physical a requirement for all of our partners. I wanted to also acknowledge the legacy that you have created for your family. Your son Tyler is one of the finest human beings I know. I truly value our friendship. Tyler is no doubt a reflection of the man that raised and taught him. I’m sure watching him carry on your professional legacy and lead his own family brings you a great deal of satisfaction and pride. Happy 90th birthday Dr. Cooper!

    Chris Carter

  • Happy Birthday! I read your first book, Aerobics, when I was 17 years old way back in 1972, recommended to me by the late Oded Bar Or M.D. who was the director of the research lab at the Wingate Institute in Israel. Your books had a great influence on me and to celebrate your 90th Birthday I made a presentation (in Hebrew) to my students in Israel. This year I am doing physical activity that adds on to around 40 aerobics point a week mostly by stationary cycling, walking and cycling.

    Yoram Aharoni

  • Happiest of Birthdays to you, Dr. Cooper. What a wonderful milestone to celebrate! 90 years of life; 90 years of making the world a better place. Your love and commitment to God and to mankind, changing the world so all who follow your principles of health and fitness and prevention can live fuller lives, is a legendary legacy that impacts lives all over the world. Thank you for your profound work, enduring efforts and ceaseless commitment to “running the race” so effectively.

    Georgia Nichols

  • Hi Dr. COOPER! You are a legend. Thanks 4 all. Good vibes from Brazil!

    Dani Santarosa



  • Happy Birthday, Dr. Cooper. You are changing lives. God Bless You.

    Shedrick Sutton

  • My father, Frank Angona, read your aerobics book when it came out in the 60s. He was a physicist so he appreciated the science of aerobic exercise. He quit smoking and started running at lunch daily. He inspired me to live a healthy lifestyle. I have been a life-long exercise enthusiast, yoga teacher, meditator and healthy lifestyle advocate. I have had the pleasure of working at Cooper as a substitute yoga instructor for 15 years I feel inspired and motivated by all the wonders you have created in your 90 years.

    Kay Lisch

  • Dear Dr. Cooper, Congratulations & Happy Birthday to you on your 90th Birthday!!! I’m still counting on you to keep time when I turn 100 years old & beat Larry Lewis’ 17 second time running 100 yards. I’ll be 100 & you will be 108. 😜 Look forward to seeing you in just over two weeks for my annual physical. May God’s richest blessings be upon you as you enter your 10th decade! Your friend & disciple.

    Grady Lowery

    Chris Holm

  • Happy Birthday Dr Cooper You are an inspiration to us all and a motivator to be all we can be! enjoy!

    Mike Turner

  • Happy Birthday Uncle Kenneth! You have been such a blessing, example, and inspiration to me and my family. You have profoundly and positively enriched so many lives and we are honored by the warmth of your kinship. I recall in the 1970s as an elementary school student seeing a friend’s mother reading one of your books. I told her you were my uncle and she took me for a delusional eight year old. It was quite vindicating to give her a signed book copy for Christmas that year. Best wishes to you and Millie on your 90th birthday!

    Kendall Key

  • You should be reading birthday wishes until your next birthday. I am sure everyone can tell a story of how you impacted their lives. After your suggestion of Burk going to California for perhaps angioplasty and him flying home a few days later with triple bypass surgery feeling as good as new. Thank you, thank you for sending us there. Ten years prior to that he had quadruple bypass and took at least a month to heal. Thank you thank you and so therefore we are both here to wish you a very happy 90th birthday and many more . God needs you for His people for many years to come. Happy happy birthday, Dr. Cooper!!!!

    Nancy and Burk Burkhalter

  • Dr. Cooper: You have been an inspiration to me since 1974, when I started training as a 16 year old, to Climb Mount Rainier. Thank you for your leadership and encouragement. to millions that have followed you.

You will always be my Champion, Idol, and Hero! Love you.

    Jeff and Pam Colquitt

  • DR. COOPER. HAPPY 90TH!! Working at the CFC (94-96.5) as my first job after graduating from Texas Tech U. was one of the great honors of my professional life. I learned so much about first class instruction from the best during my time there, but also about life. I actually went to the CFC (during snow days this past month) for the first time in several years and it brought back so many warm and wonderful memories. I ran into several friends, and all of them had that healthy, peaceful spirit indicative of the CFC patron. What a life you have lived and impact you have made on our Planet. You still look great (my mom is also 90) and want to express my gratitude to you and your staff for turning me into the trainer/human I am today. May your 90th be as blessed and happy as ever. YOU are a great man and we are all richer to have been touched by you. Please tell Tyler hello for me. CHEERS and continued blessings to YOU and yours!!


  • Dr. Cooper, Wishing you the happiest of birthdays! What an incredible life you have lived thus far. And the beneficial and healthful impact you have made on so many. I'm so thankful for you, and what I have learned from and the care I have received at Cooper Clinic. Truly life changing! Thank you and Happy 90th Birthday!

    Jill Soltau

  • Ken, I hope your 90th is your best birthday ever. Thanks for your friendship and all your advice over the years. I'm certainly healthier than I would have been as a result of knowing you. Best wishes!

  • Dr. Cooper it was a pleasure working with you all those years when Dr. Gibbons was my Dr. and Ronnie took care of all the fun stuff. I still do the things I learned from you back in the 80s.

    David Stephenson

  • Amazing accomplishments; I stayed one of my first nights in Dallas almost 14 years ago at the Cooper Hotel. I enjoyed the morning swim and became a regular visitor for my check up and fitness. Congratulations to you for creating this extraordinary institution that keeps us Dallasites healthier and personally walking the talk and being an example to all of us.

    Helmuth Ludwig

  • Moved to Dallas in 1993 with Mary Kay and stayed at CC for three weeks. Went on to staying fit at CC (including annual exams) until retired in 2006. Now 81 and still kicking so thanks for the inspiration to eat well and stay in shape. Happy 90th and many more,

    Thomas Whatley

  • Happy Birthday Ken and welcome to the 90 Club. The club has grown because of your efforts. See you in about three weeks.

    Ron Rule

  • Dear Dr. Cooper, my best wishes to your anniversary! Accidentally, I discussed your advices with my daughter and her friend, then I found out that your 90th anniversary was yesterday :). Our family knows your program to increase the personal performance for more than 50 years; my father - age 81 - is still "on the run."

    Susanne Oberdörster

  • I am grateful for your leadership in the field of wellness. I am also thankful you established Cooper Clinic where I receive regular check-ups. I live a better and more confident life because of your work. I pray God's richest blessings on you as you celebrate your 90th birthday.

    Roger Blythe

  • Dear Dr. Cooper, First, I wish you a very happy birthday! It’s a big milestone, with many more to come. My connection to you began in 1977 when my dad, Burt, went into V-Fib while attending a tour of the Clinic. Of course, he couldn’t have been in a better place. He likely wouldn’t have fared so well had he been on the wrong floor at a hospital. The family has always been appreciative of the work done that day (and every day) by the entire staff. I have been to Dallas for many physicals, and now my son, David, has also been a patient for a few years. So you see, your impact is multi-generational for us. Thanks for all you have done in the service of helping us to lead healthier lives. Happy birthday!!

    John Belzer

  • Happiest of birthdays to you! May you find Jesus near every day of the year! God bless you richly!

    Mack Pitts

  • Dear Dr. Cooper Congratulations on your significant milestone birthday and best wishes for many many more! With your energy and mind I expect you to be going strong at 100. You have been a remarkable doctor, mentor and leader in healthcare for so many over the years and have left your mark on this nation. I have had the pleasure of working with your son Tyler for the last 18 years and you two and your clinic have been a Godsend to my and my family’s wellbeing. May God continue to bless you sir....He certainly has us with your extraordinary care.

    Bill Blase

  • Dear Dr Cooper: I have been around Cooper for thirty plus years, what a fabulous legacy you have developed. You have inspired so many people. We hope you had a super 90th!!

    Ann and Madison Peppard

  • We wish you much joy in your 91st year. We have been coming to the clinic yearly and have greatly benefited from what we have learned and now practice in regard to proper nutrition and exercise. May God bless you.

    Dale & Marilou Mast

  • What a marvelous occasion. I first met you Ken when you spoke at a Boston marathon event in the 90s. Then joined the clinic in 1999 shortly after meeting by then fiancée - what a significant year for me. In the 21 years we worked together I most admired your warmth, friendliness and profound memory for medical data as well as your continued self education and reading of the medical literature. You are unique, indeed an icon as the leader in the field of exercise medicine. A very happy and healthy birthday to you. Please give my regards to Millie. Hope to see you next month when Yolanda and I visit Dallas.

    Abram Eisenstein

  • Happy Birthday to a class act! I join countless others around the world, thanking God for your incredible Christian leadership, Dr. Cooper.

God bless you my friend as you continue to inspire the lives you touch.

    Adam Wright

  • Ken: I hope you have a very healthy and happy birthday. You have made a difference in my life through my Cooper Activity Center exercise program and my Cooper annual physicals which I started in 1978 and never veered from. I can count the days I have been sick on 3 fingers and that came from eating chicken in Yemen and Indonesia. I thank you for the great influence you have had on my health and my attitude in life. May God always bless you for the good you have done.

    Cynthia Kalkomey

  • Thank you Dr. Cooper for all you have done for me. I am eternally grateful that your thorough, detailed approach to medicine, led to you finding a cancerous tumor during one of my routine physicals five years ago. A find other doctors might have missed since my PSA was normal. Your consistent, disciplined practice and attention to detail caught my cancer early enough so that I was able to quickly get in for a successful surgery to have it removed. That was five years ago and I am now cancer free with all my functions intact! Now hopefully I can hit 90 just like you...and be here for a long time to enjoy my family and beautiful grandchildren...something I’m not sure I could say, or even be here to say, if not for you finding that tumor in 2016. I am so thankful for all of the physicals, conversations and guidance over the years. You are a real blessing to me and I will always be thankful for you. You are the simply the BEST. Happy Birthday! ❤️

    Jeff Turner

  • Working for you for 16 years was a highlight of my life, and wish it could have been 30. Thank you for all you taught me. You have truly been living your life by helping others every day. Have the happiest of birthdays my dear friend.

    Dr. Larry N. Balli

  • Dr. Cooper, I met you 45 years ago at the Aerobics Center. You saw the shingles on my face and told me your father had that too. We also met a couple of years ago in your office and discussed our visits to China (you going a little more plush than I). You and your clinic have been an integral part of my life in Dallas. My yearly check ups with Dr. Abel have let me see, not only your growth, but the influence you have had and still have on generations of people. You have been an inspiration to me as well. Wishing you many more years of health and happiness.

    Pat Brady

  • Dr. Cooper, A very happy birthday. You were instrumental in getting me running in the 1960s after the Readers Digest article, and I have kept moving ever since. I’ve made several visits to Cooper Clinic and have always been impressed with the professionalism of you and your staff, and especially I appreciate your continuing witness for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Be well and keep moving. God bless.

  • Dr. Cooper: You have been such a strong influence in my life over the last 40 years (yikes!). I'll never forget the time back in 1982 when I was a young auditor running around your track, and you came up to me and told me I was gaining on Frank Shorter Now he and I are neighbors in Boulder with new knees and a continued love of exercise and fitness. Your wisdom, kindness, and generosity are a huge inspiration to so many of us. Happy 90th and I wish I could be there in person to celebrate!

    Carol Frank

  • Dr. Cooper, Happy belated 90th birthday. You have been an inspiration of fitness and preventive health care for my wife, Jody and me for many years. Thank you for your wonderful life's work. We both enjoy your Cooper Clinic and my wife is still a member of your Aerobics Center. I had my annual physical on March 3rd and I cannot compliment Dr. Beard and Dr. Rick Wilson enough for their professionalism. All the best.


  • Happy Birthday Dr. Cooper! I had seen you around the clinic, but when you came and spoke at our Rose City SHRM event a couple of years ago, I was amazed by your passion for people to live healthy lives and was engaged by your amazing storytelling. What a legacy you have built and will leave for generations to come. Thank you and God bless you!

    Carrie-Ann Yearty

  • Happy Birthday Ken! I am so thankful for you and Millie being such dear friends to Mom (Marcene) and Dad (Turner) and thus to our family. Your love for the Lord and for others shown in your passion for pursuing healthy lifestyles changed my parents lives and our lives as well. I am so thankful I got to grow up jogging and exercising in the 70's with my parents simply because it was how we took care of what God has given us; it was health motivated, not self image motivated. The discipline Marcene and Turner learned from you passed down to us. We are so thankful for your friendship with Dad. Your love for the Lord and for Dad blessed him and made him a better man, better father, and better husband. We love and appreciate you.

    Julie Kerckhoff

  • Dr. Cooper, I wish you well on your 90th birthday. You are indeed a very special person. You are an inspiration to everyone that has ever come in contact with you. I am so happy that I discovered Cooper Clinic 25 years ago. It has really made a difference in my life. Blessings!

  • Dear Dr Cooper- It has been an amazing privilege and pleasure working with you over the years. I actually joined the Cooper Center when I was an intern in 1981 and have been participating in some form ever since then. Your goals, curiosity and dedication have made us (me) a better person and a better cardiologist. You lead by example...and therefore I have always tried to have my "ducks in a row" when discussing EP with you. Happiest Birthday!

I was blessed by your hospitality, as well as the medical care your team provided. Your life has impacted mine in a wonderful way, and for that I'm eternally grateful. Happy birthday!

    Tim Brandon

  • A very Happy and blessed Birthday to you, Dr. Cooper! I so admire you and your life's work and want to thank you for helping so many people find their way to better health (of which I am one). I had a physical and attended the "Wellness Week" at Cooper Clinic in March of 2012, and that started me on a journey of wellness and the implementation of a changed diet and lifestyle which have continued to this day. Congratulations on reaching this great milestone! My father turned 90 last year, and my mother's 88th birthday will be in July. It is such a blessing to have parents who take good care of their health and are still here to be with their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. I'm sure your family, friends and community (as well as many around the world) are thrilled that you are thriving and in good health (as am I!). May you have many more good and healthy years ahead, and may God Bless you and your family!

  • Happy Birthday, Doc!

    Benchmark Harris

  • Dr. Cooper, Happy Birthday! You have always inspired me and I love being a part of the Cooper Fitness family. Tyler and Angie are close friends with Meredith and me. You and Millie have given us so much to shoot for. And I love that you keep moving forward. I love bumping into you in the evenings at the Cooper Center. You have left an amazing legacy. I'm so fortunate to know you. And your faith in Christ has been passed down to your family. Tyler is the most stubborn friend I've known when it comes to his beliefs. I can be a little bit shaky in that department, but he's such a wonderful friend. On behalf of my in-laws, Don and Barbara Floyd. And from my family (including Lang's close pal, Parker), we wish you the happiest of birthdays! I'm hoping for many more. The Father of Aerobics has earned another decade or two.

    Mike Oestmann

  • Happy Birthday to a Long Term Friend who has done so much for me and countless others. The opportunity to work out and play basketball at the Fitness Center for over 25 years was such a Blessing. I also received my annual physical at the Clinic during that time which was so beneficial to the good health I continue to enjoy. Dr. Cooper is a Great Man and I will always be grateful to him for having such a positive influence on my life.

    David Terre

  • Dr. Cooper, It is with great joy that I wish you a Happy 90th Birthday. Working with you and the amazing practice you established was such a privilege for me.

    Tom Kimball

  • Happy birthday!! You changed my life with your first book in the late 60s and I have been a fan for 50 years. I applaud your work, I read your books, I come to your clinic, I take your supplements and I share everything I've learned with a multitude of grandchildren. We all thank you!!

  • I first heard you lecture about Aerobics nearly 60 years ago when I was a young Air Force physician at Randolph Air Force Base. It has been gratifying to watch your successful career, to read your aerobics books, how to live the aerobics lifestyle. Have a very happy birthday and many more!

    Norwood Hill

    Esmeralda Pena-Weber

  • Dear Dr. Cooper! I grew up in Brazil not understanding why everyone would always say “let’s go out for a Cooper” when they wanted to do a jogging. It was an awesome pleasure to know you personally in 2018 and hear all the great stories you had with the “Seleção”. Thanks for your remarkable legacy to the well being of mankind. Happy Birthday, God bless you!

    Abel Reigada

  • The Peck family wishes you a very happy and healthy birthday. We owe so much to you, your clinic physicians and staff. Many thanks for all you’ve done. Be well and congratulations on this incredible milestone!

    Kevin Peck

  • I remember your Aerobics book in my childhood home in the late 60s. Then it seemed everything fitness took off from there! We listened to Zig Ziglar on his motivational tapes talk about the Cooper Clinic in the mid-70s, and I'd drive by it in Dallas on the way to work in the 80s. Our family friend, Dr. Bruce Miller, who recently passed away, told us about his acquaintance with you as you both talked about nutrition during the 90s. I even went for a grand physical at your Dallas clinic and later joined the new Cooper Fitness Center at Craig Ranch here in McKinney in the 2000s/2010s. Somehow your life has threaded through mine over all these years, and I am so grateful for your subtle influence and indirect investment. I hope your 90th birthday is the happiest of all. What a privilege to be alive. May God bless you and keep you, Dr. Cooper!

    Anne Clayton

  • Happy Birthday! Thank you for the Cooper Clinic I’ve been doing my annual physical for 25 years. What a benchmark to look at every year to keep fit.

    Mark Sullivan

  • I am happy and proud to have worked with “The Father of Aerobics,” who has almost singlehandedly done so much to make the world healthier, and may well have saved more lives than any other doctor alive today. His clinic saved my life with a health problem they alerted me to during my annual checkups. He has inspired me, as he had inspired tens of millions of others, to become more fit, and the aerobics movement will serve as a lasting memorial to his pioneering and groundbreaking work in convincing the world of the importance of regular exercise. He helped move medicine away from disease management and towards disease prevention, inspired many to take up jogging, and made fitness an important part of American lives. My wife Ursula and I, grateful patients and friends, look forward to celebrating his 100th.

    John Banzhaf

  • Happy Birthday Dr. Cooper! I had the chance to meet and talk with you on January 4th as we waited the mandatory 15 minutes after having received our first COVID shot at Comprehensive Orthopedics (you initiated the conversation by inquiring about the large scab on my lower leg that I received from a bicycle accident which has now healed quite nicely, thank you). Here's wishing you many more "Happy Birthdays" to celebrate in the years to come. P.S. I have benefited greatly from participating in the Nutritional program offered by the Clinic.

    Bill McNally

  • Dr. Cooper, The Lord gave a Beautiful gift to the World on the day you were born! Happy Birthday 🎈🧁 I love Cooper Clinic❣️. I was a patient of Dr. Camron Nelson for nearly 18 years😷. I miss seeing him.

    Janet Skauge

  • Happy birthday Dr. Cooper! From reading your books since they first were written to coming to Cooper Clinic for a physical every year for the past 30 years, your work is what has enabled me to be fit and healthy for my entire adult life. I know that is also true for many others as well. Your work is truly a gift to the millions of people who are in good health because of you. Congratulations on turning 90, and thank you!

    Gregory Lester

  • Happy birthday Dr. Cooper: I’ve been an annual physical patient with Drs. Tornelli-Mitchell and McFarlin since 1997 even after a move to Austin in 2000. At 71, I attribute much of my good health to their combined care and skill. On your birthday my wife and I received our second of two COVID vaccinations at your clinic. Your entire staff should be complimented for the excellent way they handled the entire process. And a tip of the hat to Dr. McFarlin for getting us in line for our two shots. Again, happy 90th and here is to many more.

    Dr Bill Ranelle

  • 🎈Happy Birthday Dr. Cooper For 23 years you have helped me take charge of my health by giving me great advice! 😊 You have reviewed my medical report and John's jointly, so that we have no secrets. We have always admired your stamina, your dedication to educating people on how to become or stay healthy! Thanks to you I did two half marathon back to back at age 46. I was race walking, not running. At age 76 I still do some race walking but at a slower pace. You were my inspiration to undertake something I had never done before. May you continue to enjoy good health and happiness every day. 👏😀🧘🍀🌅🏃🏻‍♂️🎂

    Ursula Banzhaf

    Charlie & Dotty Duke

  • Dr. Cooper, I first heard you at your presentation at the Indiana Dental Association which I think was in the mid 70s. I was inspired! I'm nearly an octogenarian and my goal is to be able to tell my kids what things were like a hundred years ago! hope you can too. Congrats on your success and best wishes for a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!


  • Happy Birthday Uncle Ken! You are just amazing & we are very proud of you. With love—Roger & family

    Roger Cooper

  • Dr. Cooper, Happy Birthday!! I first learned of Cooper Aerobics in 1978 during my freshman year at Georgia Tech. We read your aerobics book in our PE class. I am so grateful for your innovative approach to fitness. I have been fortunate to get a Cooper Clinic physical assessment on multiple occasions from 2005 on. In 2015 you were kind enough to allow me to meet you personally in your office. You pointed out several elderly patients that far exceed my stamina in the treadmill. (Ha!) God bless you sir!

    Claire Farris

  • Happy Birthday Dr. Cooper!!! 🎂🎂🎂

    Judy and Bob Sherman

  • Dear Dr. Cooper: I have been a fan of yours ever since I read your book on Aerobics in 1973 when a physician in Coral Gables FL gave me a copy. You inspired me to jump right in and earn my 30 aerobic points each week. I have had the pleasure of hearing you speak many times and your messages continue to resonate in my head. My favorite is, "it's a whole lot easier to maintain good health than it is to regain it after it is lost." What an understatement! And I keep reminding myself: "proper diet, proper exercise and proper supplementation." Please keep the good advice coming; I will always heed it. Happy Birthday and may you have many more. Thank you for all that you do.

    Bill Wilson

  • You were the beginning of our, my husband and my, commitment to exercise. I remember one year when we were at Cooper Clinic for our annual physicals and enjoying some lunch after--you were sitting at the table next to us. We enjoyed a brief conversation with you eventually getting around to The Treadmill Test. It just happened to be a record for me--even to this day actually!! I was so proud to tell you!! Your leadership and commitment to health and longevity are an inspiration to so many and continue to be even at the young age of 90. Wishing you a Happy, Happy Birthday!!!!! Well lived, and wished many more.

    Nancy Swaney

  • Dr. Cooper, First, and foremost, "Happy Birthday"!!! The irony is that you are the one who has given the most to all of us---health! I remember when I first started running and learning that you were the one who inspired "exercise." My husband and I have been, in some form, coming to Cooper Clinic for over 40 years. Today, as part of the Platinum Program, we feel truly fortunate to be able to continue our relationship with the fine doctors and staff of the Clinic. On rare occasion, I see you in the halls and always want to thank you for all you have done for exercise, but I never want to bother you. So, just please know how grateful we are for all you have done and wish you the very HAPPIEST OF BIRTHDAYS!!

    Karen Drayer

  • Happy Birthday Dr. Cooper! I am fit today and play golf 3 days a week thanks to your guidance and encouragement!

    Elisabeth Wilkerson

  • Dr. Cooper, Happy Birthday and congratulations on your 90 years. I was fortunate to be introduced to your first book in 1970 by my cross country coach in Athens, Alabama. I have probably read that book 30 times. You inspired me to dream of living to be 80 or 90 years old. A tall order for a 17 year old in rural North Alabama. I have made it to 67 and look forward to challenging those years. I still run 300 to 500 miles a year and maintain a carefully monitored diet. I am looking forward to my 21’st annual physical at Cooper Clinic this month. Thank you again for your books.

    C. Houston Elkins, Jr.

  • Happy bday, Doc. I heard you in 1978 at Texarkana College speaking about aerobics. I became a runner that day. Many miles later, I’m now almost 72, eating a plant based diet, walking every day and 4 lbs under my high school weight. I came to Cooper Clinic in my early 30’s assuming I would die of cardiovascular disease like my dad did at age 38. Every year is now a bonus year. Thank you for establishing a preventative path for my family and me. Wishing you God’s richest blessings!!

    Michael Giesler

  • Happy birthday, Dr. Cooper! Thank you for everything that you have done. Your impact is beyond measure! We’re so blessed to work for a company founded on your wisdom, faith and core values!

Thank you for your dedication and leadership. I hope you have had a wonderful 90th birthday!

  • Dear Dr. Cooper: My dentist, Dr. Archie French in Arcadia, CA referred me to your clinic and I completed my first complete physical evaluation on Feb 7th, 2002. It was a great experience and so I have been going back ever since. I would like to thank you for setting up the clinic and focusing on the many benefits of aerobic exercise. The evaluations at your clinic have allowed me to fine tune my own healthy habits, in particular the importance of adding omega 3 and vitamin D supplementation to my daily diet. I wish you a very Happy 90th Birthday and hope you will continue to share with us the very insightful articles that you publish for many more years to come.

Many miles later, I’m now almost 72, eating a plant based diet, walking every day and 4 lbs. under my high school weight. I came to Cooper Clinic in my early 30s assuming I would die of cardiovascular disease like my dad did at age 38. Every year is now a bonus year. Thank you for establishing a preventative path for my family and me. Wishing you God’s richest blessings!!

    Pepo Tsvetanov

  • We’ve been driving from Kentucky for years and have loved all our experiences but my most fun memory is when I was waiting one morning and the doors had not opened. This older man in a baby blue ‘80’s running suit came up to my car. He wanted to talk so I got out. He said, “Good Morning, Little Lady!” Now the funny part of this is I am 6’2” and he was maybe 5’5”! We talked for 1/2 an hour about life, your friendship, my job, etc. When they opened, the doors, he very gallantly held the door for me. As we walked in, everyone started standing and saying, “Good Morning, Mr. Perot!” I had no idea who he was and I think that tickled him pink! I tell this story often so Happy Birthday and Happy Memories!

    Janet Caldemeyer

  • Happy Birthday, Dr. Cooper, and many more!

    Richard Fisher

  • Dr. Cooper, Happy Birthday! You and your book were the inspiration that started me on my journey to fitness in December 1968. You defined fitness and how much running and other exercises were needed to maintain fitness. I became a life long fitness enthusiast. I am now 81 years old and continue to do aerobic workouts and strength workouts 6 days a week. I've also improved my nutrition over the years. Thank you for leading the way and for your inspiration and for improving the quality of my life ant my wife's life. I look forward to wishing happy birthday again in 10 years!!

    Walter Willms

  • Dr. Cooper, Wishing you many happy returns of this day! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! Your vision and legacy will live forever!!

    Logan Sankaran

  • You are the reason I am still on this earth instead in God’s Kingdom in Heaven. On May 21, 2015, during my annual executive physical at Cooper Clinic, your radiologist, John Cannaday noticed a 2mm spot on my pancreas in the CT Scan. Out of an abundance of caution, he requested that I come back over to his office and have another CT Scan, this time with contrast. But for that second CT Scan, I would probably have been dead by Christmas. On June 10, 2015, I was on the operating table at John’s Hopkins undergoing the Whipple procedure. But for your wonderful institution, Cooper Clinic, I would not be here today enjoying my wife, family and friends looking forward to my 6th year anniversary of the operation in June and in excellent health creeping up on my 74th birthday on August 25th. Thank you and have a wonderful and blessed celebration of your 90th.

    Ted Skokos

    Larry & Cathy Boldt

  • Happy birthday, Dr. Cooper. You have been an inspiration to so many. I think we held the record in the wellness program, because we brought so many people in ministry to this excellent program. One of these friends was the niece of Bev Shea. Bev remembered you well. Hope all who see you today see Him and give Him honor and blessing!

    Skip Taylor

  • Dr. Cooper, you won’t recognize our names, but we’ve followed you from my Air Force pilot training days in 1968/69 to current. I bought your book “Aerobics” at the BX at Craig AFB. Both my dad and uncle were your patients in the 1970s and 80s and they lived to ages 96 and 92 respectively. We’ve been Aerobics Center members off and on since the mid 70s (including the fire in 1979!) and Cooper Clinic patients (and Institute supporters) back to the Dr. Constant days (who also was at one time my USAF Flight Surgeon!) and you once saw me for a Class III flight physical since I’ve stuck with my flying passion for more than 50 years. I believe your son Tyler and our son Ryan were St Marks students at about the same time. As our paths have crossed, we’ve admired you greatly! Thank you for all you’ve done and continue to do for so many of us! Happy Birthday!!

    Jim Keyes

  • HAPPY BIRTHDAY, DR. COOPER! Salute, my friend, across many miles. Human beings of like-minded trials Once only dreaming to conquer that path. Leading one towards life’s goals that last. Compassion, empathy leads the way Hoping beyond hope it all will stay When all is gained and nothing seems lost As children we yearn for acceptance As we learn, across time, how to dance Some faster, others with many steps Forgetting the rules, maintaining pep. No matter the time nor even space Could not buy shoes good enough to lace. There is yet one word all encounter On their journey to provide banter Always true, goals of such high merit Impossible for most to ferret. When medical counseling is best Nothing remains to chance or a guess There are many themes to be addressed In order to gain much good progress. To be an adult with faithfulness Kenneth Cooper, his name is success!

    Roy Wilson

  • Happy Birthday, Dr. Cooper. Wishing a very happy blessed day.

I am still trying to stay healthy and I go to your clinic for check-ups as often as I can. Thank you!!

    Tangee Gamble-Moon

  • Wishing you a joyous birthday celebration Dr. Cooper. You have made so many lives better over the years and changed how we look at the importance of healthy living. My father gave me a copy of your first book when I married some 56 years ago and I still have it. He was a college professor and head of the department of Physical Education at Tarleton State University for 26 years. He was a man ahead of his time and appreciated your interest in a healthy lifestyle. My husband and I spent a number of years as clients at your Dallas facility and credit your excellent care with our good health habits. Thank you for continuing your efforts to raise the healthy living consciousness of people everywhere. The world is better for having you in it.

    Pat Camp

  • Dr. Cooper, Happy birthday on yet another milestone. While I am not the best aerobic guy, I do indeed credit my good health to the care and encouragement received from Dr. Nelson and my annual visits, paid for out of my own pocket. I have had the pleasure of meeting you in person on a couple of my visits and appreciate your commitment to good health and providing a pathway for others. Blessings!

  • Dr. Cooper: Happy birthday and thank you so much for your calling over the years. My father met you in the late 1950s when you were working on an airplane crash in southern Oklahoma. Ever since 1970, we have had a copy of Aerobics on our shelf. More recently, we have been blessed by my wife, Dr. Susan Roberts, being able to work with you and the fantastic Cooper team. In 2004, I became a patient and I truly believe that Dr. Tedd Mitchell and the Cooper team literally saved my life. Susan talks with great joy about the times that she is able to run into you. You have assembled a team with a philosophy of care and excellence that is a blessing to many. Thank you so much. Have a great day and a double portion of your favorite cake with too much ice cream.

However I have known about you for over 25 years form my parents Commissioners John & Elsie Busby. My Parents loved getting to know you and your lovely wife at Salvation Army events and we are so grateful that you became my father's doctor and literally saved his life by noticing a very small blip in the stress test. We love sharing this story and so appreciate the way you cared for my father from that day forward to the present. While living in Oklahoma City, we passed by Cooper Middle School and came to find out it was named after YOU. The influence of your 90 years is just incredible. Blessings on you and your family as you celebrate this great milestone.

    Ross & Kara Miller

  • Happy 90th Birthday to a great man with a great legacy. A pioneer of the benefits of proactive health management and prevention of disease. You are truly an inspiration for all of us. As a former soccer player and great fan of the 1970 Brazilian soccer team, considered the best of all time, I often relate to people the story behind that team and Brazil's long time success in world competition. They knew the benefit of being "Cooperized", a term born in Brazil to describe their experience and learnings from Dr. Cooper. God Bless you and your wonderful family!

    Arthur Wolf

I was diagnosed early at age 47 with prostate cancer as a direct result of Dr. Terry’s great work and had surgery and have been cancer free for the past 13 years. Keep up the great work with your exceptional team- and hope to celebrate 100 in 10 short years.

  • Happy Birthday Dr. Cooper! I have been one of your fans since being introduced to your book while I was attending SMU in 1972-1976. I was 18 as a freshman. Now, I am retired at age 66. I moved my health club membership from Equinox to the Cooper in June 2018 immediately after I stopped working. While I was working, the commute to the Cooper was a bit much, but now? Happy to do it! I always drive in the main gate so I can see the sweep of the lawns, ponds and drive across the darling little bridge. Just love that! The Cooper is a country club where the focus is health and wellness instead of golf. Thank you for your vision! Warmest regards on your 90th Birthday!

    Ellen Beadling

Several years after he started the annual physical, I did the same. We both enjoyed the attention and the advice for fitness for over 20 years. We have missed that last year due to COVID. Thank you for all you have contributed to the world of fitness! Happy Birthday - wishing you many more!

I am sorry that I missed you last year due to COVID, but it has been great getting to know you and your history. Carrie and I have personally enjoyed the sit downs in your office where you spend time and truly care about us as people vs. just being your patient. From the time where you chose me as one of your new patients (because I was from Oklahoma) till now, you are an inspiration for me. Thank you.

Thanks to your clinic and the wonderful doctors and technicians there I learned I had Thyroid cancer early on because I had a body scan. Last week I had surgery to remove my entire Thyroid and some lymph nodes. If not for that body scan I'm not sure when I would have known about the cancer. I for one, appreciate all your hard work and dedication to your clinic! Wishing you great health and warmest regards!

    Jane Greene

  • Happy 90th, Ken! I first heard you speak in San Antonio while you were still in the Air Force. Later you accepted our invitation to come to SA to meet with our Harte-Hanks management team and our spouses in 1973. You taught us how and why it was important to do our daily “Cooper,” and you taught us so much more. You came back several times. Then we began to get our check-ups at your clinic. We became all too familiar with the treadmills and the pool at Preston Road. And we took to heart our numbers—from max heart rates to body fat % to max treadmill times. They became a badge of honor to our team. All of us developed better lifelong health habits because of you. And some of us, although now in our 80s, still come back. Thank YOU, Dr. Cooper!!

    Bob Marbut

  • Dear Dr. Cooper, When I was 40, I came to visit you after Jay Monahan, a Washington and Lee classmate of mine, had died of colon cancer. Though I didn't know Jay personally as I was 3 years behind him in class, I was determined to have my first MDCT scan performed. Thanks to YOU, I have been Heart Healthy with NO heart disease since then, scoring a zero and 1 on my scores. Good living these last 21 years! Now, I take my new smoking hot stone cold fox Bride up to see y'all, too! Warmly yours,

    Hubbard and Lisa Kennady

    Laura Hanson

  • You were walking into NorthPark Mall briskly many years ago! We entered together, walked a few strides in tandem for a while. I did not know who you were. You looked down at my new running shoes and made a nice comment regarding my shoes. We talked about running and its benefits, just an extra nice guy off the street, I thought. You turned into a store for one of your book signings. You asked me my name. F.A. (Drew) Barbosa, I said. You signed a book for me and said something like "This book will help your running out." It did–it changed my life in so many ways! Thank you for all you do, Ken!

    F.A. (Drew) Barbosa

  • Happy Birthday, Dr. Cooper. You have much to be grateful for; and more importantly, we are truly grateful for you and your entire team at the Clinic for improving the quality of our lives.

  • Dr. Cooper, Although I have never met you personally, I know that you are a man to admire because of the wonderful atmosphere that you have created at Cooper and the obvious satisfaction and happiness of all the employees working there. A man cannot be truly great without lifting up all of those around him. Whether customer or employee, you have lifted us all up, filled us with inspiration and expanded our sense of what is possible. Thank you for this gift and for modeling how to live a long and excellent life. Happy 90th Birthday!! Regards,

    Samantha Harkinson Dewan

  • Happy 90th Birthday, Dr. Cooper! I’m a big fan! I began seeing a nutritionist at Cooper about 10 years ago. With her help, I lost a significant amount of weight and have kept it off for 4-5 years. I am so very glad you included nutrition in your array of programs. You’ve helped me be a healthier person. Wishing you many more years of health and happiness.

Also, because of your son, I was able to seek treatment for prostate cancer at a very early stage and am thankfully a healthy survivor. So you could say I owe my prolonged live to the Cooper family. I appreciate you leading the fitness journey that we are on and serving as a motivator to continue. Happy 90th and blessings to all. God Bless,

    Randy Golden

  • 90 STRONG!! Wishing you a very happy birthday, and a special thanks for all you have done and continue to do for the propagation of physical health and education around the globe. You are a pioneer, philanthropist, and certainly a fantastic doctor. However, you are most memorable to me because of your kind spirit and genuineness when dealing with others. The world needs more like you. Happy Birthday, Dr. Cooper.

  • Dear Dr. Cooper, Happy Birthday sir! You are a man who practices what you preach and that shows up in everything that you do. I first met you when I went to Cooper Clinic when I was 40 (I'm turning 60 next month). I noticed right away that you built a first class institution. May God bless you with many more years, and I hope you very much enjoy your birthday!

    Jerry Cifor

  • Dr. Cooper, even though I never personally met you, your work has made a huge difference in the way I have lived the past 22 years. In my humble opinion, Dr. McFarlin has been a wonderful extension of your vision. Your clinic not only teaches life lessons, it allows me to leave each year with the comfort of understanding my body functions (and malfunctions!) You are a very blessed man to have been given the opportunity to enrich the lives of so many people. May God continue to bless you in the future!


  • The best is yet to come. Happiest birthday wishes.

  • Dear Dr. Cooper--There is no doubt in my mind that I am still alive today at the age of 82 because I have been blessed with knowing you and following your teachings. I know of no one in the world today that has more to influence individuals throughout the world to practice preventive medicine in order to improve their lives. In addition, your lectures at the National Defense University are legendary: you went up against the President of the United States, Members of Congress, and other big name DC speakers and always finished number one in the annual student evaluations. It was always the best lecture I have ever heard! God bless Dr. Kenneth H. Cooper M.D.--you are God's special messenger that has enriched people's lives throughout the world. Dr. John Holland

  • Happy 90th Dr. Cooper! Your Wellness Program saved my life & my husband's life in 1997. Mine when Day 1 of the Wellness Program discovered a spiculated mass in my 1st ever mammogram at age 38. A mammogram I would not have had at 38 except that I was at the Clinic for a thorough baseline physical. That same day my husband was saved by the Ultra-fast CatScan that showed a horrid calcification score. A diagnostic technique that hadn't made it to our home state of NC in 1997. Here we are in 2021...getting ready to fly down to Cooper Clinic for our annual physical. We are sold on Cooper for life!

    Talmadge Mangum

    Tim Ostermeyer

  • I first learned of Dr. Cooper in the fall of 1970. I was a freshman at UFla, where the short wiry PE instructor (mandatory back then) expounded upon the virtues of this program. After taking more than a few years off from the program, I am active daily today and take good advantage of the Cooper Clinic from time to time. Happy Birthday Dr. Cooper, and many more returns of the day. You are a visionary, sir.

    Bruce Allen

  • Happy most blessed birthday to our dear friend of more than 50 years plus. When God created you Ken you were born fearfully and wonderfully made and one of His finest and best creations. May He favor you with many more healthy and joyful birthdays. You are loved to the moon, riding on a rocket ship back down to earth to wherever you are. In short LOTS.

    Elizabeth Aboud

  • Happy birthday to a special person who has made a healthy difference for so many. You are a modern day hero.

    Barnett Grace

  • Dr. Cooper - Happy Birthday!! My father, Commissioner John Busby, met you through your volunteer work with The Salvation Army. My father's involvement with The Salvation Army led him to meet multiple U.S. Presidents and Queen Elizabeth and so many people in all walks of life -- some wealthy and well known and many folks in the time of their greatest need -- but I dare say you are at the VERY top of the list of people he is grateful to have met. Why? Because you are the one who insisted he get an angiogram after you administered your stress test and suspected some blockages -- and sure enough -- he had pentuple bypass surgery as a result. That was over twenty years ago. I know he credits you with "saving his life" as he had no symptoms. He's now 83 and much like you living life to the fullest! Thank you for giving those years to him and to his family.

    Scott Busby

  • Happy Happy Birthday to one if the very best people I have ever known! God bless you!!!

    John Busby

  • Best wishes for the HAPPIEST BIRTHDAY on your 90th year!!!

  • Dear Ken, Happy Birthday! I am exactly 90 days older than you, having turned 99 on Dec. 4! You have been a blessing in my life since we met in 1968, and you and Millie and Joanie and I went to dinner and got acquainted. I was on the HP School Board, and we talked about the wonderful benefits of aerobic conditioning!

    Lee Slaughter

  • Happy Birthday! Wishing you God’s blessings on you this day and in the days to come. Thank you for your kindness and faithful commitment to ALL of us as you always are looking out for our health and best interests.

    Bill and Pat Shepherd

  • Dr. Cooper, Congratulations on achieving this amazing milestone! You have and continue to be a source of inspiration and motivation to all those you come into contact with. I had the pleasure of seeing you during my annual physical in December of 2019. Watching you move throughout the room speaking with different patients, I thought to myself I can only hope to be as vibrant and energetic as Dr. Cooper is when I'm in my 80s. Now here you are, setting the bar ever higher! I have no doubt I will be sending another note of congratulations when you hit the century mark! My best wishes for continued great health and my sincere thanks for all you've done to make it possible for so many others have that same opportunity.

    Jerri & Norm Grail

  • Happy Birthday Dr. Cooper! Congratulations on reaching this milestone. In 2011 the Census Bureau said 4.7% of Americans were 90 and older, compared to 2.8% in 1980. By 2050 they project the number will grow to 10%. That increase surely has to include your decades of work in educating all of us about the importance of regular exercise, managing our weight, stress, sleep, alcohol, etc., and how the choices we make each day can increase our chances of living longer and better! Wishing you joy, happiness, and good health.

    Jill Turner

You had a huge influence on two of my dear friends and mentors, Jim Stahl and Fred Blohm, both doctors at East Texas State University. Without your leadership and their influence, I would have never achieved the healthy lifestyle that my wife and I enjoy today! Thank you for all you have done! Happy Birthday!

    James Grove

  • In the early 60s I was in basic training at Lackland AFB and then stationed at Randolph AFB, as a medical corpsman. I read your first book and was fascinated by it, and my wife and I have been to your clinic for many years. Because of age and some infirmities, we have stopped going. We miss Dr. Kettles and her wise counsel. We want to thank you for all that your clinic has done - for us and for the world, and wish you many more years of health and happiness. Here's to lots more birthdays... Anne and David Reinauer, Lake Charles, LA

  • Dear Ken, Congratulations for having squeezed so many achievements into a mere 64 years of professional life. Back around 1960 you inspired me to start jogging, which led to fun college years of track and cross-country. More than 50 years later my visit to the Cooper Clinic saved my life by discovering a potentially fatal medical problem. Thank you for all you've done for me...and the American public!

    Michael Jacobson

  • On March 4, 1931, God created little Kenneth Cooper. God's creation was unique and different. Today, we are celebrating all the memories you have made and all the knowledge you have shared. But, mostly, we are celebrating 90 wonderful years of YOU, Dr. Cooper. Best wishes for another year of good health and much happiness. Proverbs 9:11- "Wisdom will multiply your days and add years to your life."

  • Happy 90th Dr. Cooper! Your vision and leadership in fitness and health inspired me at a young age while attending the kids fitness camps at CFC in the 70s. That inspiration still shines today as I continue to focus on overall well-being. Thanks for making a positive difference in the lives of so many including me.

    Mike Horowitz

  • HAPPY 90TH KEN!!! I am a 92 year old (as of 4/5/21) healthy guy who attributes so much of my healthy and wonderful life to starting my annual physical exams about 40 years ago at Cooper Clinic with Larry Gibbons (who became a very good friend as well !). This was an annual trip from Pennsylvania and one of the most important dates on my business schedule. I also was a runner. (And, for a short period held the stress test record for my age). So, THANKS for what you started and what it has meant to me! Let's keep it going!!! With best regards.

    Amie Kitt

  • Dr. Cooper, Happy Birthday! I recall fondly coming to Cooper Clinic, along with my brothers and also the senior management of Irby Construction Co. and Stuart C. Irby Co. Most of our senior management never even considered "working out" for personal fitness. Most all of them were "good ole boys" who had hard jobs, and thought that was exercise! In any case, my family and many of the Irby employees benefitted greatly from you and your organization! Again, Happy Birthday!

    Charles Irby

  • Happy Birthday Dr. Cooper-- I had the honor and privilege of meeting you briefly some 25 years ago, while I was visiting some relatives in the Carrollton, TX area. I knew your clinic was close by so I told them that I wanted to stop by to visit. I asked a receptionist if you were in and if it were possible to meet you. I was directed to your office and we chatted briefly and I got your autograph. I thank you for all the valuable work you have done over the years. I was a young PE teacher then, and now, at age 62, I am still teaching middle school PE/fitness during the pandemic (this is my 39th year!) Thanks again for your example!

    Perry Dickens Jr.

  • Dr. Cooper, I began jogging for the first time in my life after reading your book back in the early 70s. I was in my early 30s at the time. This behavior change has made a significant difference in my wellbeing. I’m now 76, take no prescribed medication and enjoy life. I’m been to your clinic several time over the years for checkups. You made a positive difference in my life. Thank you. Happy Birthday!

My wife Shirley and I share with you the challenge of successfully summiting Mount Kilimanjaro. Your work and example have added quality years to my life. Thanks for all you have done for all the folks.

    Ronald Turley

  • When tested years ago you graciously signed my first marathon sneaker from 1979. That “unpadded” Nike sits on my shelf along with your good wishes (telling me to go out and run). And I do! Toenails be damned. 🎈 Happy birthday 🎉

    stuart goldsmith

  • Happy birthday Dr. Cooper. Thank you for your great contributions. I met you at your clinic when I came for my annual physical and we talked about Abebe Bikila, a great Ethiopian marathon runner. You shared with me about the Boston Marathon where he left you way behind. It is okay Dr. Cooper; you have run a different kind of marathon and won. Happy birthday Dr. Cooper and thank you for your contributions to humanity and your great legacy. Dex Beyene, Dallas resident, originally from Ethiopia.

  • Dear Dr. Cooper, A very Happy 90th Birthday to you! I would like to tell you how important the Cooper Clinic has been to my own father, Jim Trimble, who also turned 90 in December. He was a faithful Aerobics Center member since 1983 when they moved into the neighborhood. He continued to go almost every day, enjoying walking your lovely grounds, getting health check-ups, and later enjoyed your stationary bikes courtside, always followed by fun coffee with friends. He would still be there if he had not moved to The Tradition 2 years ago. Needless to say, your groundbreaking program and center have made his life longer and happier (he's a triple bypass survivor of 23 yrs, amongst other things). Your staff always knew him and greeted him with cheer. I can say for people like yourselves 90 is the new 50! Congratulations!

    Kristi Thompson

  • My wife, Annette, and I were blessed to meet you at the clinic when we had our physicals 10 years ago. You showed us your cliff vs declining angle graph as it pertains to health and longevity...and now you have proven your own theorem ...May our God bless you and your family for the rich investment you have made in the lives of millions of people...What a Legacy he has allowed you to build!

    Dr. Sam BAILEY

  • Dr, Cooper, Happy Birthday!! You and your work has been an inspiration to me. My physicals at your clinic were always a highlight to my year and a motivation to stay in shape all these years.

    Scott Martin

  • Wishing you a wonderful and invigorating 90th birthday! Thanks so much for sharing your life and teachings with the world. You have influenced my life from 1977 when I was a new student at ORU and we had to watch your Aerobics video and get involved with aerobics every single semester. You helped me to understand the value of a fit, healthy body. I had the pleasure of seeing you about 2 years ago for a checkup and you shared some wonderful memories of your life in your office. I treasure that time. God's angels are still watching over you. Blessings in Christ brother!

    Edward Cook

So, congratulations, stay healthy, and the legacy of your work and your facility lives on. All the best,
