"Our beloved husband, father, Opa, brother and uncle, Hans Kopp, passed away on Friday, September 21, 2018 at the age of 83. Hans was married to Annemarie (nee Gibisch) for 56 wonderful years. He leaves behind his son, Robert, daughter, Birgitt Hacker, son-in-law, Ted, and grandchildren, Kris, Katie and Klayton, brother, Franz, and nieces and nephews, Paul Keyerleber, Michele Fitzgerald, Franz Kopp and Elisabeth Clift. He was preceded in death by his daughter-in-law, Christa Kopp.
Hans loved to tell a good story, about his days in the US Army, about his skiing adventures, about helping to found the Ohio Youth Soccer Association, about his childhood in Batschsentiwan, Yugoslavia, and mostly about his children and grandchildren. His loves were his family, especially his beloved wife, Annemarie, whom he met while stationed in Germany during his service in the US Army, his beloved mountains, where he skied until just this past winter, all the young soccer players he coached, the dogs he had over the years, and chronicling his family history of the Donauschwaben.
Hans, Dad, Opa, Onkel Hans – you are loved and you will be missed with all our hearts. You made this world a better place, you left us better people and your love will remain with us forever. Rest now in the peace of our Lord Jesus Christ.
