I heard from a friend at the school district that our friend Jeff passed away last week…’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.
