Owen Robert Copp, Peachtree City, Ga., formerly of Kokomo, passed away Saturday, April 6, 2013, at the age of 70.

Owen was a devoted husband, father and grandfather, who loved his family and his country. He was a true patriot and a proud veteran of the United States Air Force. He was known for his dry sense of humor and would always greet you with a big smile. Owen was a man of great honesty, integrity, and had a great work ethic. He was a loyal employee of the Chrysler Corp., and retired with 30 years of service. Following his retirement, he enjoyed spending time fishing, but enjoyed nothing more than the time he spent with his grandson.

He was preceded in death by his son, Robert Lee Copp.

He is survived by his loving wife of 51 years, Bernice Ashwill Copp; sons, Joseph E. Copp and wife Jeana, Huntsville, Ala., Derald O. Copp, Senoia; grandson, Ryan Lee Copp; sister, Roseann Pierce; eight nieces and nephews; and his special four-legged friend, Daisy.
