Mason Hopkins

Aug. 8, 2006 - Oct. 5, 2013

Mason Hopkins, 7, Russiaville, passed away Saturday, Oct. 5, 2013, among family after a courageous three-year battle with medulloblastoma brain cancer. Mason was born on Aug. 8, 2006, in Kokomo, the son of Nicholas Hopkins and Brooke (Mulkey) Hopkins.

He was a first-grade student at Western Primary School, and attended Lil’ Munchkins Day Care in Kokomo. Mason played soccer for three years through the YMCA, and soccer was his favorite sport. He loved motorcycles and was an honorary member of the Krazy Horse Krew. Mason loved to sing and dance and always listened to music. He could light up a room with his smile and laughter. Mason was a charmer of all girls, young and old, as they were all referred to as “princess.” Mason’s strength, bravery and charm will always be remembered.

Mason is survived by his mother, Brooke Hopkins, Russiaville; father, Nicholas Hopkins, Frankfort; half-brother, Taylor Hopkins, Frankfort; half-sister, Victoria Hopkins, Frankfort; grandparents, Mariesa Skogland and Dean Kelley, Kokomo, Ken and Lora Mulkey, Kokomo, and Steven and Sandra Hopkins, Frankfort; great-grandparents, Bob and Rhoda Roskovensky; aunts and uncles, Justin and Breanne Gingerich, Chicago, Christopher and Heather Kerby, Kokomo, Catherine Hopkins, Frankfort, and Nathan Mulkey, Kokomo; and great-aunt, Jennifer (Jay) Neff.

Funeral services will be at 1 p.m. Thursday at Sunset Memory Garden Funeral Home, with Pastor Ken Rushing officiating. Entombment will follow at Sunset Memory Garden Cemetery. Visitation will be from 4 to 8 p.m. Wednesday at the funeral home.

Memorial contributions may be given to the Cure Search Children’s Cancer Walk through the funeral home. Online condolences may be given at www.sunsetmemorygarden.com.
