Robert "Bobby" KoppApril 16, 1944 ~ September 15, 2017 (age 73)
It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of Robert “Bobby” Kopp, 73 years of Humboldt, on Friday, September 15, 2017 at Humboldt District Hospital. Bobby was born on April 16, 1944 to Joe and Edna (nee Zenner) Kopp in Humboldt. He grew up and attended school there. Following his education he began working for Brockman Services as a welder. He later went on to work for the Saskatchewan Wheat Pool Elevator as an elevator agent for 10 years, serving in Dixon, Fulda, and Paddockwood. On October 19, 1963 he married the love of his life, Louise Koldeweihe. In 1974, they came home to Humboldt to take over the family farm. In 1990, Bobby took over Kopp’s Guns, a business started by his father Joe. He continued to farm and operate his business until the present. Bobby enjoyed curling, hunting, fishing, and farming. He was fortunate to live in the same yard as his daughter and therefore was able to spend lots of time with his two grandchildren, teaching them how to hunt and farm. One of his favourite things to do was to have weiner roasts together. Bobby will be deeply missed by his wife Louise, daughter Kelly (Russell) Wittke and their children Jordan Wittke (Kelsey), and Taylor Wittke (Ryley), all of Humboldt, his brother Allan (Jude) Kopp of Martensville, brother-in-law Ed Jones of Saskatoon, sisters-in-law Loretta Berting of Humboldt, and Kay Koldeweihe of Quesnell, BC and brother-in-law Arnold Zimmerman of Estevan. Bobby was predeceased by his parents Joe and Edna Kopp, brother Fred Kopp; sister Joan Jones; parents-in-law John and Emma Koldeweihe; brothers-and-sisters-in-law: Hilda, Elsa, Louise (in infancy), Paula, and Al; and nephew Joey Kopp. The Funeral Mass for Robert will be held on Thursday, September 21, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. at St. Augustine Roman Catholic Church, Humboldt. Memorial Donations may be directed to the Saskatchewan Wildlife Federation, Humboldt Branch.
