Robert Mark Kopp
6-26-1965 - 6-24-2011
On June 26 1965 Mark Kopp was born to two loving parents Martha (McGee) Kopp and Robert L. Kopp. Mark grew up surrounded with friends that would prove to be life long, Jimmy Davis, Bill Hassall, Tom Mann, Jim, Joe and John Peschel and many others.
In 1984 Mark married Michelle (Haney) Kincaid and had two daughters Chrystal Kopp and Carrie (Kopp) Howell. Along with his daughter Rachael Veselka, Mark taught his girls everything he knew from plumbing to working on cars to being proud of who you are and where you came from. In 2010 Carrie and her husband Brandon became parents of Brandon Ashley Howell II, making Mark a very proud grandfather.
Through the years Mark and Michelle remained great friends as close as brother and sister, but both decided they should not be married to one another. Mark found the love of his life, Sheila (LaCourse) Kopp in 1989. To which he remained married to and in love with until the moment of his passing.
Mark had one other true love in his life though, sometimes a love that surpassed all others. That was his love for the open road and the freedom it promised. Be it through his chosen profession of Truck driving or his motorcycle. On his motorcycle he was king with nothing to hold him down, he could go anywhere and he did, to where ever his heart so desired.
On June 24 2011 the lord took Mark to heaven, where I'd like to believe he is riding with the angels, his bike being the loudest of course, looking down to all his loved ones waiting for the day we can all be together again.
