William “Bill” Copeland, age 95, passed away on Tuesday, August 13, 2019 at The Oaks Nursing Home. He was a native of Hattiesburg, Mississippi and a resident of Houma, Louisiana. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith. 2nd Timothy.

Bill was a loving father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He loved his family and leaves a legacy behind. Bill was an electrician with Texaco until his retirement after 35 years of service. He was truly a jack of all trades. He carved decoys, enjoyed fishing, hunting, and baseball. He touched many lives and will be missed by all who knew him. Bill proudly served our country in the U.S. Navy. He is now reunited with his wife Helen and they will spend eternity with their Lord and Savior.
