David Hopkins Obituary

Mr. David "Boy" Hopkins journey began July 16, 1938 to the late Mr. Chalmus and Thelma Hopkins. He joined St. Luke United Methodist Church at an early where he continued his love for the Lord and his church family until his demise. He surrendered all to God on March 24, 2024, when the Lord said, "Come home my good and faith servant and take your rest."

David never married nor did he have any biological children, but he was a father to many like Jalisha and JD just to name a few.

He loved babies and was very generous to all of the children.

He was proceeded in death by his parents, two brothers and five sisters.

He leaves to cherish his memories: one sister, Virginia (Eddie) Rich of Waynesboro, MS; The Hopkins/Hall family which consists of too many to call by name; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.

David was a avid hunter and fisherman. He enjoyed the outdoors. His big heart and kind spirit kept him joking and talking “smack”, trying to keep everyone laughing. The deer, squirrels or rabbits didn't stand a chance in the wild. He always had something to say. So watch out because "Boy" was thinking while everyone was drinking. Oh, how we loved that man!

Funeral services will be held Saturday, March 30, 2024 at 11:00 AM at St. Luke United Methodist Church in the Frost Bridge community (Waynesboro) with Rev. Willie Kinslow officiating. Interment will follow at the church cemetery. 

There will be a viewing period Friday, March 29, 2024 from 12:00 noon until 6:00 PM at Turner Funeral Home.
