I heard from a friend at the school dis­trict that our friend Jeff passed away last week.….here’s more from that note:

As you prob­a­bly know, Jeff Copeland died unex­pect­ed­ly on March 4th.  As a Mas­ter Mechan­ic, Jeff kept our busses on the road for 25 years. He leaves behind his wife, Kay Cousins, and his four grown sons, Jason Copeland, Jon Copeland, Rooben Eby and Roc­cay LaRock who are all Fri­day Har­bor High School alum­ni.  There was a memo­r­i­al gath­er­ing at South Beach last week­end to scat­ter his ashes.

  1. Jeff was a skilled mechan­ic and a steady work­er. Those of us who relied on him at the school to keep the bus­es on the road will miss his pres­ence in our lives. My heart goes out to Kay and the boys.
