Franz Alexander Kopp
We mourn the tragic loss of our beautiful Franzi; age 46, beloved son of Mary Boyd and stepson of William Boyd of Lake Monticello, Virginia; son of Franz Xavier Kopp of Standardsville, VA; loving sister of Heidi Kopp Trebour (Eric) of Charlottesville, VA; beloved wife and best friend, Sarah Sabin Kopp and adorable son, Raven Alexander Kopp; nephews Evan & Bowen, nieces Emily, Hannah, & Sarah; as well as Uncles Joseph (Simone), Paul (Jana) and John Maingot of Ottawa and Toronto, and many 1st and 2nd cousins throughout Canada and Germany.
He passed away at the Evergreen Hospice House in Albany, Oregon after a short and courageous battle with a rare cancer. Franzi, Sarah and Raven made their home in Philomath, Oregon and loved their location in the beautifully forested land with a river running in front of their home.
Franzi was born at the Aspen Valley Hospital and was a graduate of Aspen High School. He was an incredibly talented skier, loved bow hunting, camping, and hiking the mountains of Colorado, Idaho, and Oregon. He was one with nature and the elements, a true survivor. His family was the culmination of all he ever hoped for – a beautiful wife, an adoring son and a secure home.
Franzi was a healer and gave his gift generously to all who called upon him. He will be remembered as a loving and sensitive man, deep in his convictions.
We will miss him so very much.
A private family memorial service will be held in Charlottesville, VA on August 13 at St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church, and a celebration of his life will be held August 20th in Corvallis, Oregon for all his many friends. For more details, contact Sarah.Sabin@rocketmail.com
