In Loving Memory

Harold W. Hopkins

March 5, 1927 - November 3, 2022


Harold W. Hopkins, 95, passed away peacefully on Thursday November 3, 2022, at his son’s home in Fairhope, Alabama.

Harold was a native of Chatham Massachusetts, and a proud member of the Wampanoag Tribe of Gay Head (Aquinnah).

Beyond family and friends, his fondest memories were of his love of the sea as a Merchant Seaman.

After he and his family moved to Los Angeles, California, he worked as a bus driver and supervisor for Metro until his retirement.  Upon retiring, he and his wife of 47 years, Minerva “Minnie” Hopkins, moved to San Antonio, Texas, where they resided until Harold moved to Fairhope, Alabama to spend his remaining year with his son and daughter-in-law.

Harold is preceded in death by his son, Harold “Sonny” Hopkins Jr., his brother, Stanley Hopkins and his sisters, Lois Schlosser, Eva Cole and Elizabeth Nickerson.

He is survived by his wife, Minnie; and her sister, Lupe, of San Antonio, Texas, and his son, Kem Hopkins and daughter-in-law, Diane, of Fairhope, Alabama.

    Kem and Diane
    Franck and I want you and Diane to know that you have our sympathy and prayers in the lost of your Dad and father-in-law Kem, Harold was such a delightful person. I will always remember seeing him in the park with his walker getting his morning exercise as long as he was able. He would always find an excuse to stop and sit awhile so he could speak to everyone that came by. Know he enjoyed going out to dinner with y’all going to the grocery’s store with you or just to the pier to look at the ocean. You both were truly blessed to be able to spend some time together. Know he enjoyed it also as it really showed in the way you took such good care of him and especially making sure to include him in all you did while with you. Know you will miss him. Also I’m going to miss waving at him sitting in your front yard enjoying the sunshine early in the morning. Walking over to him and talking a few minutes Such a joy and nice person. He always started my day with a smile. God bless you and Diane and all of the family.
