SAEGERTOWN — Stanley F. Hopkins, VMD, 76, of 21716 Kyla Drive, Saegertown, died Wednesday, May 23, 2012, at his residence surrounded by his loving family following a seven-month courageous battle with cancer.

He was born Jan. 21, 1936, in Pleasantville, a son of the late Phillip and Helen Johnson Hopkins. He married Karen Hornstein, Jan. 2, 1988, and she survives.
