It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Howard Hopkins on Sunday, April 11th, 2021 after a short battle with cancer.

Howard is survived by his beloved wife and best friend, Lynne. He will be greatly missed by his son, Paul Hopkins (Jen) and grandchildren Tim, Alex and Kristen as well as his daughter, Jen McKee (Jerry) and grandchildren, Chloe and Corbin. He will be fondly remembered by Lynne’s children, David Suelzle (Vlora), Andrew Suelzle, and Katie Johnston (Luc) and grandchildren, Mason and Hana. He will also be missed by his sisters, Carol Smith and Laura Kearne (Percy).
