Neal Ezra Copper Jr., 65, of Irwin, Pa., was a beloved husband, father, brother, grandfather, uncle and friend who was called home to be with his Lord and Savior on Sunday, September 6, 2020 at high noon. He was born on Wednesday, January 12, 1955 in Jeannette, Pa., the son of the late Neal Ezra Sr. and Dolores Moog Copper. Neal was proud to be a veteran of the United States Marine Corp. He enlisted in December of 1973 and was honorably discharged in December of 1977, with the rank of Lance Corporal. No one could tell a story like Neal. Family, friends and complete strangers alike were entertained by his gift of gab. He was a dedicated Christian man and his love of the Lord was evident in all that he did. He was a volunteer scout leader, he dressed up as Santa for the elementary school and volunteered at Jeannette Hospital on the surgical unit. Neal is survived by his loving wife of 40 years, Kathy Lynne Nichols Copper, his son, Scott (Kelly), his brother, Tim(Teri), his grandchildren, Jeremy, Samson and Tobias, several nieces and nephews and all of those who lovingly called him “Pops”. All funeral arrangements are private. A Ceremony will be held at the Living Word Congregational Church, 2003 Ridge Rd, Jeannette, Pa. 15644 on Saturday, September 12, 2020.
