Long-time Hanscom family friend (and a night-shift co-worker of mine many years ago), Copie was always looking for an excuse for a good laugh. Wishing Cora and family peace, and the comfort of happy memories.

All of my memories of Copie are about hunting camp... he tolerated my lack of quietness tromping through the woods, and teaching me his driving skills shifting “three-on-the-tree” without the clutch while heater-hunting on rainy days, and I tolerated his snoring in his Cox camper.... It was fun searching for and finding the “eye of the needle”, but no deer. Prayers for Gods comfort for you all. Love, Gregg.
