As of yet, no cause of death has been given. On the group's MySpace page, Cooper's partner in music, Joshua Eustis, wrote a touching and candid memorial of someone with whom he'd been friends with "since high school."
"We have been so fortunate to tour the world together, while at the same time having a massive amount of laughs at one another's expense," Eustis writes. "Aside from Charlie's singular genius and musical gifts, I can tell you that he was a total sweetheart of a guy, and a loving friend and confidant to people everywhere."
According to Eustis' post, Cooper is survived by his parents, sister, nephew and "more adoring friends than the Universe has dark matter."
