Born in a small town in Kentucky, raised on a farm where growing food and raising live stock was part of every day life. Frank came from a family of hard working, good men. When he graduated high school he set off to college to study business, he didn't want to have to live the hard life his father and grandfather had to live, working sun up to sundown just to make ends meet. So he studied hard using his good work ethic he learned on many years on a farm to get his MBA with honors. After college he went to live in a number of big cities trying to find his place, he did well in each city at a number of different businesses, but realized quickly that none of them felt like home. So Frank moved back home, back to small town Kentucky and even got a job selling farm insurance, but Frank still felt empty inside like there was more to life than success and money. So he decided to start a backpacking adventure, he sold all his possessions, purchased some gear and set off to Europe. This would be the worst choice Frank would ever make, not long after the trip started the outbreak began. All flights back to the US were grounded, he couldn't get back home, so he set out for a place to call his temporary home. A place he new he could farm and survive with a sparse population density, but enough people to warrant aid and rescue, this is how Frank Cooper ended up in Chernarus.
