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.

Stan was a 1954 graduate of Titusville High School where he excelled in football, basketball, baseball, volleyball and track.

A dedicated and caring veterinarian of 50 years, he came to Meadville in 1963 and purchased the veterinary practice of Dr. Pease on North Street and renamed the practice Brookside Veterinary Clinic. He was a member of the Pennsylvania Veterinary Medical Association.

Stan was very proud of his family and especially enjoyed time spent with them. He also enjoyed traveling. A devoted man of faith, he was a member of New Beginnings Church of God and formerly served for several years on the leadership team.

He was also very proud to have helped save the life of an individual who was struck by lightning at the Crawford County Fair 40 years ago.

Survivors, in addition to his loving wife, Karen, of 22 years, include four children, Kimberly Turner and her husband, Kevin, of Guys Mills, Kristin Hopkins of Pittsburgh, Stanley Hopkins Jr. and his wife, Margaret, of Snohomish, Wash., and Stacey Joslin and her husband, Paul, of Saegertown; five grandchildren, Andrew Hopkins, Matthew Hopkins, Alexandria Joslin, Jordan Turner and Kendra Turner; a great-grandchild expected; a sister, Janet Robyak and her husband, Joseph, of Sun City, Ariz.; and several nieces and nephews.

Waid Funeral Home, 581 Chestnut St., Meadville, and Wednesday from 10 to 11 a.m. at New Beginnings Church of God, 13226 Leslie Road, Meadville.
