Robert J. "Tuesday" Hopkins Jr. Obituary
Robert J. 'Tuesday' Hopkins Jr. of Avondale Robert J. "Tuesday" Hopkins, Jr., 61, of Avondale, most recently of the Delaware Veterans Home, Milford, Del., passed away peacefully on Tuesday, March 25, 2014 at Milford Memorial Hospital. Born in West Chester, he was the son of Robert J. Hopkins, Sr. and Mary Leo Hopkins of Avondale. Tuesday was a 1970 graduate of Kennett High School and a member of the U.S. Navy, serving aboard the USS Whipple during the Gulf of Tonkin Conflict of the Vietnam War. He was owner of the Pizza Doctor in Kennett Square, and later sold plumbing supplies to customers throughout Southern Chester County. He loved spending time with family and his many friends, and especially with his former wife Dawn (Dunlap) and his son Kyle, the light of his life. He enjoyed fishing, collecting art, and many exciting outings on his boat, motorcycle and snowmobile. He could be counted on to always provide a fireworks show on the 4th of July and to come to Christmas parties dressed as Santa to entertain the children. He could quickly put a smile on anyone's face. He was blessed with the love of family members and many friends who will miss him dearly. He is survived by his son Kyle J. Hopkins; sister, Christine H. Rizzotte; and two brothers, Michael L. Hopkins and wife Donna (Versagli) and Gary A. Hopkins and wife Elizabeth (Bewley); nieces and nephews, Nicholas Rizzotte, Diane Bucklaw, Kellianne, Michael Jr., Jaclynn, Gary Jr. and Bryan Hopkins; great-niece and nephews Jeffrey Jr., and Angela Bird and Jason Bucklaw.
