Gregory S. Cooley


Gregory Starr Cooley, 64, Laguna Niguel, California, died Monday, July 30, 2018, at home surrounded by his loving family.
Greg was born to Harold and Dorothy Cooley December 10, 1953, in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
He spent most of his childhood in Batesville, Indiana. He was proud to be a Batesville Bulldog, scoring 482 points during his varsity career and playing on the 1971 semi-state team.

Greg loved his family and friends, and he will be remembered for his kind, humorous spirit. He was a quiet leader who truly believed we all could change the world through our actions. He embraced adventure and especially loved the mountains and the beach.
