William (Bill) G. Hopkins
February 22, 1959 - December 16, 2019
Family and friends may call on Monday, December 23, 2019 from 5 - 7 p.m. at the Autumn Green Funeral Home, 47 Oak Street, in Alfred.
William (Bill) G. Hopkins, 60, died unexpectedly at his home in Waterboro on December 16, 2019. Bill was born in Somerville, Massachusetts on February 22, 1959 and was raised with two sisters, Kathleen Hopkins Morey and Cheryl Hopkins.
Bill and wife Margaret moved to Maine with their two daughters, Krysteen and Stefanie in 1989 and knew immediately that it was the right choice for his family. The love for his family was always enormous. Bill liked to travel, and always wished he was able to do more road trips with his wife.
Bill was a patriot and a firm believer in this country. He loved being outside and was filled with pride in building a get-away cottage for his family and for many future generations to come. Bill enjoyed working with wood, i.e. wood burning, exotic wood turning, building, and various projects; including bird houses with his grandchildren.
Bill was always a hard worker and provided for his family in many self-sacrificing and humbling ways. He was an innovator and a project researcher, a fixer of everything imaginable that his grandchildren, children, wife, extended family and friends needed. May he rest peacefully and pain-free as we will miss him forever.
Bill is lovingly survived by his wife of 39 years, Margaret Bruziak Hopkins of Waterboro; his two daughters, Krysteen Hopkins of Santa Rosa, California and Stefanie Hopkins of Shapleigh, Maine, his two grandchildren, Sullivan and Scarlette Frenette, as well as his father William H. Hopkins and his wife Dorothy, two sisters and five nieces and one nephew.
Family and friends are invited to pay their respects on Monday, December 23, 2019 from 5 – 7 p.m. at the Autumn Green Funeral Home, 47 Oak Street, in Alfred.
In lieu of flowers, Bill’s family would like to purchase a memorial bench and have it placed on the land at his beloved hand-crafted cottage. Memorial donations may be given to his wife Margaret.
The Autumn Green Funeral Home is respectfully handling arrangements.
