Darren Cooper RIP

I was heartbroken to hear this morning about Darren’s passing away. I deeply valued his personal friendship and his steadfast personal support over many years. He was someone who I could go to for advice about anything and he’d give it with wisdom, humour and realism.

I have lost a great friend. Sandwell has lost one of its great sons, and Birmingham has lost one of its great allies. We all feel lost today. The political and economic life of the West Midlands is also much the poorer for his passing. My thoughts and prayers are with Karen and the family: my heart goes out to them this Easter.

On behalf of Birmingham City Council and the citizens of Birmingham we extend our deepest sympathies to Darren’s family and the people of Sandwell.

Cllr John Clancy
Leader, Birmingham City Council
