Gary Douglas Hopkins passed away on June 5, 2019 at 85 years old. Gary was born January 10, 1934 in Marietta, Georgia to Thomas Grier “Red” and Odell Lizzie (Rakestraw) Hopkins. He was the youngest of their 5 children.  Gary leaves behind his daughter, Tracie Kirkendall (Blake Theil); sons, Lenny (Anette) Hopkins and Doug (Kathy) Hopkins; along with many grandchildren, great grandchildren and even a few great great grandchildren. Gary was preceded in death, by most importantly, his wife of over 50 years Carol; son Timothy “Timbo”; his parents; and all his siblings.
Gary was only 16 when he snuck his way into the Air Force and even went on to fight in the Korean War. Upon his return to the US, he soon met and married his eternal love, Carol Ann (Pacholski) Hopkins. They planted roots and raised their family in the Toledo area.  Gary provided for his family by working at Dana Corporation.  After retiring, Gary worked at several golf courses and driving ranges as golf was a passion for him.  Gary also liked a great game of poker or if the grand kids were around, it was UNO. He was an avid film aficionado and enjoyed the local casino from time to time.
There will be a private memorial service scheduled later in 2019 for family. In lieu of flowers please donate in his name to Hospice of Northwest Ohio.
