Atwood and Leona Cool passed away on the same morning at their Union County home.
“It was remarkable, there were times where you could see their breathing together, two connected souls,” the couple’s son, Tim Cool, said.
Atwood and Leona met during Leona’s sophomore year of college and wed shortly after. Atwood was studying to become a pastor.
“They were married 68 years during that period of time and had 4 great kids, well at least one great kid and 3 others,” Tim joked.
