    Mr Copeland “Bob” was an amazing mentor to our youth at our civil air patrol squadron. My son looked up to him. He always gave good advice to the kids and had patience with listening to all they had to say. Learning new skills is was what he wanted to make sure every kid participated in coming thru the door. Thank you for your service to our country, being a great citizen of our community and may you rest in peace.
