Colton Koop, age 26, passed away on Friday, November 16, 2018 in Swift Current, SK. Colton Richard Koop was born October 7, 1992 to Randy & Alice Koop at the Swift Current Union Hospital, the youngest brother to Ashley and Justin.
Determined to do things his own way, he went from crawling to running and never stopped moving. From a young age, Colton loved animals and they loved him. He had a chicken that would come to him specifically to be picked up and pet, it broke his heart to see any animal die or suffer. Colton received his education at Waldeck Elementary School, O.M. Irwin Middle School, and the Swift Current Comprehensive High School. He worked in the oil patch, did tree cutting with his dad and brother, carpentry, crop dusting, and was working at Pumpjack.
A friend to many, Colton loved to bring people joy and make them smile, better yet if he could make them laugh with his wicked sense of humor. He loved fishing, camping at the Saskatchewan Landing — especially in the van he commandeered from his dad — cooking, baking, animals, spending time with family and friends, trucks, drag racing, and doing burnouts. Colton especially loved his two dogs, Chuck and Nora.
Colton was a kind-hearted young man with a gentle soul, a tough exterior, and a quick smile. He is gone too soon and will be missed and remembered by all who loved him.
Colton is survived by his parents, Randy & Alice Koop; his siblings, Justin Koop and Ashley (Cody) Lewis; his nieces, Emmy and Molly Lewis; his grandparents, Molly Koop and Tina Wiebe; his uncles, aunts, and cousins; and by his many friends. Colton was predeceased by his grandparents, John Koop and Jake Wiebe; and by his uncle, Leonard Wiebe.
