Dear Friends,

Russell F. Coover, 55, born in Wilmington, Delaware, son of Richard and Jeanette Coover, was a devoted parent to Russ and Ryan and a tireless servant of Baha'u'llah, the Prophet-Founder of the Baha'i Faith. Mr. Coover passed away peacefully on Monday. Although he bore severe illness with courage for several years, his death was unexpected. Only hours beforehand, he had been in his carpentry workshop as usual, this time crafting an elegant new sign for the Baha'i Center of Salt Lake City. Since he accepted Baha'u'llah in the 1960's, Mr. Coover has devoted himself to serving the Faith. Most recently, he was the custodian of the Baha'i Center in Portland, Oregon. This spiritual reading by Bah'u'llah is dedicated to his memory: "O SON OF SPIRIT! With the joyful tidings of light I hail thee: rejoice! To the court of holiness I summon thee; abide therein that thou mayest live in peace for evermore." We love you Dad.
