Endowment Profile- James Cooper

Jim Cooper loved Lewes. He loved spending time as a docent at the Lewes Life-Saving Station, enjoying sharing our maritime past with visitors from around the world or around the corner while Lewes’s fishing fleet made its way in and out of the Lewes & Rehoboth Canal.   He was a Lewes Life-Saving Station Museum Docent from 1998-2004.  As his wife Joan wrote to us, “He absolutely loved The Lewes Historical Society.”

When Jim moved from Lewes he never lost his love of the town or for the Society. After Jim passed away, his family honored his memory by asking that gifts be made in his memory to the Society.
Such Memorial Gifts are, by Board policy, placed in the Society’s Endowment and allowed to grow, and ensuring that Jim’s passion for Lewes is always remembers and can continue to give back forever.

Gifts to Memorial Funds established at the Society may be made at any time in memory of those named.
