HOPKINS; Joseph

July 25, 1917 ~ April 10, 2015

It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of my beloved husband, after battling cancer for 2 years. Joseph was born in the town of Bury in England. He grew up in a very loving family. He had a great many accomplishments. During the war he was attached to the Royal Air Force and installed many of the radar sites on the Hebrides Islands in Scotland. He came to Canada and worked in Ontario for 29 years, having become an electrical engineer. He became an amateur radio operator as a hobby and on coming to BC his call sign was VE7 BYF. He will be greatly missed by his wife Clare, family and friends. Donations may be made to the charity of your choice.
