While searching for a pen I found one of Tag’s famous pens that he gave away. I used to work at a restaurant (Blackjack’s) and Tag would always supply the servers with his pens. I decided to search his name hoping that the (1921-????) was still going, although that would put him at 100 years old. Sadly I see his obituary but fondly I remember him, his generosity and fun spirit.


SIncere sympathy to you and the family. I have fond memories of Uncle Tag -always fun ,generous and kind . He made me laugh and smile. I have lots of cool things in the house that he has made for me over the years. Just last year we put the new welcome sign in the flower garden. Rest in Peace Uncle .

To the Cooper family – Tag was one of a kind. We looked forward to seeing his van pull into our driveway delivering dairy supplies and it was a bonus when he came in for coffee to share stories and a good joke! He was a true friend. We will always appreciate his generosity to us and our desk is full of pens with “Cooper’s Dairy Supplies 1966-20??” We were loyal to Tag, purchasing our dairy supplies only from him, telling the other suppliers that we would only change suppliers when Tag retired, never imagining that we would quit before he did. We are sure that this is true of many farmers. We are very sorry that we are unable to attend his funeral service but we were able to have a visit with him in the hospital before he passed away. We will forever cherish our memories of him.
