I knew Bud Hopper very well for the few years in my early teenage days living on Weld County Road 20 1/2. The Hoppers were the best neighbors and friends. I was blessed to work as "key gopher", "sweeper", "fetcher", "brick-cleaner", "hoddie", "lawnmower boy", "assistant coal-shoveler", and many others. My favorite title, however, was "friend". He taught respect, love, and hard work, things I learned at home and were reinforced in long summer work days and some cold winter weekends. Bud and Sherrie became my other parents across the street. He will be sorely missed. The lessons he taught continue to be passed on to our own kids, scout and youth groups, and I feel enormously blessed to know him. He is a godly man who loved his family, his country, his God, and shared generously. My children grew up with stories of working for the Hoppers, Big Red, and lots of farm tales. You will be missed until we meet again.
With Love, Appreciation, and Respect,
Kevin Blood
