Born March 4, 1928 in Cherry Tree, PA he was a longtime Lake County resident. He was a devoted employee of Deepwood Industries since 1975, with a strong work ethic and declined many opportunities to retire; in just the past year, he agreed to take one vacation per week. Jim attended the “Just As I Am” class at Willoughby Hills Friends Church, with many of his friends. He was a peacemaker, and lived knowing he would have eternal life. He is survived by several cousins and the people he chose to include as family. He was preceded in death by his father, Orlan in 1975 and his mother, Alice (Beck) Kopp in 1978. Knowing the man that Jim became, it is evident how much he was loved by his parents. Private burial will be in Western Reserve Memorial Gardens in Chester Township.In lieu of flowers, contributions are encouraged to Willoughby Hills Friends Church for the “Just As I Am” class.
