Frederick Gustav HOPP

1941 – 2012

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our father, grandfather and beloved husband, Frederick Gustav Hopp on September 25, 2012 after a courageous battle with cancer.

Fred was born in Bashaw, Alberta, but spent most of his life in B.C. He attended school in Kamloops and worked as a flooring contractor in Kamloops and Salmon Arm. Fred was an ardent hunter, fisherman and fly-tier, who loved the outdoors and was never happier than when he caught a large trout on one of his own flies. He retired to the Cariboo to fish the many lakes and explore the countryside on his quad Scsc – “South Cariboo smartcar.”

Fred is survived by his loving wife Diane, his daughters Karen (Yan) Babin and Tammi (Mitch) Vik; his son Chris (Tara) Hopp; and his grandchildren Christopher, Connor, Steven, Brandon, Trevor and Sadie.

The Hopp family would like to thank Dr. Geerts, the nurses at 100 Mile District Hospital, the Home Care nurses, the 100 Mile Hospice Society and especially Gayle who made it possible for Fred to come home to Bridge Lake for his last days. Cremation arrangements were made and at Fred’s request there will be no formal service. Our love for Fred and memories of him will forever remain in our hearts.
