September 30, 1935 – August 29, 2020
With sadness we announce that Tony Hopkins of Lacombe passed away peacefully in his sleep on August 29, 2020 at the age of 84. Tony is survived by his son, Howard (Laurie) of Ponoka; daughter, Linda (Darren) Stanvick of Penticton; nine grandchildren; and five great grandchildren. Tony is also lovingly remembered by his sisters: Louis Hornseth of Red Deer; Elsie Green of Lacombe; Marion (Robert) Weidner of Lacombe; and Judy (Ken) Truesdale of Ottawa; as well as many nieces, nephews, and dear friends.
Born in Barrhead, Alberta, Tony grew up in Haynes before the family relocated to Lacombe in 1949. He married Myrna (Boode) of Lacombe in 1964, then moved his family to the farm near Morningside in 1975. Together with his partners, Glen and Charlie Nolan, Tony ran Hopkins Construction for many years, also while farming and spending much of his spare time outdoors — hunting, fishing, and golfing.
Tony is predeceased by his wife, Myrna; parents, Jack and Helen Hopkins; sisters Gladys, Shirley, and Peggy; and brother, Glen. A private service for Tony will be forthcoming. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Ducks Unlimited at https://www.ducks.ca/how-to-help/product-donations/.
