Stephen Hopkins, 73 of the Forest Grove Community, passed away July 17, 2020. He was born October 16, 1946, the son of Jack and Nadine Hopkins.
Stephen served in the United States as a paratrooper fighting among the 101st Airborne and the 109th Air Delivery during the Vietnam War.
He was a jack of all trades and was self-employed most of his life, his latest career beginning in 1994 as a cattle rancher and chicken farmer which he loved, as well as his John Deere tractor. He was quiet, stubborn as a mule and loved to joke.
