About Edwin Andrew Koppes

WEST SALEM -- Edwin Andrew Koppes, 78, of West Salem, passed peacefully into the arms of his Savior on Friday, Jan. 22, 2016 at the Crystal Care Center in Ashland.

Edwin was born Jan. 19, 1938 in Chester Township and was the son of the late Andrew J. and Elizabeth Lehman Koppes. He had worked on the Carl and Dorothy Swinehart Farm and later did odd jobs around the farming community until his health wouldn't allow. He had made his home with Dale and Marti Imhoff and family, his nephew, for the past 36 years and attended the House of Prayer in Mansfield. Edwin lived his Christian faith daily and read his Bible and shared the message joyfully with everyone he came in contact with. He was bold in his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. At the age of six, Edwin battled spinal meningitis and because of his illness, he was a special person to friends and neighbors. In later years he enjoyed walking around the neighborhood with the family dog.

Surviving are a sister, Myrtle (Mervin) Brubaker of Mechanicsburg, Pa.; nephews, Allen Imhoff, Dale Imhoff, Bruce Imhoff, Lloyd Koppes, John Koppes and Steve Brubaker; and a niece, Susan Koppes Lee; numerous great-nieces and nephews, great-great-nieces and great-great-nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents; a brother, Lloyd Koppes; a sister, Elsie Imhoff; and a nephew, Glenn Imhoff.

Services will be held on Monday at 1 p.m. at Fairhaven Mennonite Church, 7731 N. Elyria Rd., West Salem with Allen Imhoff officiating. Burial will be in the Chester Eight Square Cemetery. Friends may call one hour prior to services at the church on Monday. Murray Funeral Home in Creston is handling arrangements.
