Bryan Eugene Hopkins passed away February 20, 2019. We will gather for fellowship and remembrance from 2 to 4 p.m. on Thursday, February 28, 2019 at Lake Ridge Chapel and Memorial Designers.

Bryan Eugene Hopkins was born on April 4, 1962 to James and Patricia Pate Hopkins in Houston, Texas. He graduated Smiley High School in 1980.

He married the love of his life, Colleen McGinley, on October 4, 1981. They had two wonderful daughters together. Tamilyn ‘Tami’ Hopkins was born in 1982 and Barbara ‘Barby’ Rose Hopkins Hays was born in 1985.

Our dad loved helping people as much as he could. It brought him joy. He was always there for anyone that needed him. He could light up the room with his smile and fun personality. He was a character and loved making people laugh. Even when things were really tough, he wanted to create a better life for his daughters. He was so strong and refused to give up, even through all of his health issues. He loved cooking, reading books, spending time with family and loved ones and playing games with his family. His dog Buddy was his best friend and he always had him by his side. He was a spiritual man and believed the good we put out in the universe comes back to us. Family was so important to him. We are devastated to lose him so suddenly. He will always be in our hearts and on our minds. The world will not be the same without him here.

Survivors include his daughter, Tamilyn Hopkins, daughter, Barbara Rose Hays and husband, Tyler; brothers, Brent Hopkins and wife Bonnie; Brandon Hopkins and wife, Rose; Bernard Hopkins; numerous uncles, aunts, nieces, and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his father, James Archie “Buddy” Hopkins; mother, Patricia Ann Hopkins; wife, Colleen Patricia Hopkins; 3rd wife; and Sandra Gongora-Hopkins.

  2. I was very sad to hear of your dad’s passing. I am glad that you got to spend so much time with him though and that you have so many wonderful memories to keep him with you always. He did a wonderful job raising two great people and I’m sure he enjoyed every moment with both of you.

  3. My deepest condolences goes to the family. The Bible gives us a beautiful promise for our future that will soon come to be. We are anxiously awaiting John 5:28,29 when our loved ones will be resurrected and Revelation 21:4 when Jehovah God does away will all causes of suffering, including, pain, mourning and death forever. I hope these scriptures can bring some comfort during this time.

  4. I’m sorry for the loss of Uncle Bryan. We have some good memories of when we were growing up. Glad he no longer has to suffer. May he RIP. My deepest sympathies to y’all, and his brothers, and his best friend buddy.
