Rolland Ross "Doc" Coplen Obituary
ROLLAND ROSS "DOC" COPLEN On Thursday July 23, 2015 Mr. Rolland Ross "Doc" Coplen, lost his four-year battle with cancer. He was surrounded by his family at the time of his passing. Doc was born September 23, 1928 in Brush, Colorado, the second of four children to "Cope" and Myrtle Coplen. His early life was spent in Northern Colorado and Southern Wyoming. In 1946 Doc met and married the Love of His Life Carol Thompson of Denver, Colorado; they celebrated their 68th wedding anniversary on December 2, 2014. In September of 1947 the first of three children, Chris, was born to their family; followed by Debby in 1950 and Dana in 1964. Eventually his family would consist of 2 sons-in-law, 5 grandchildren; 4 great grandchildren; his sister Lila Jean and many cousins, nieces and nephews. Doc was preceded in death by his father Cope and mother Myrtle along with two of his three sisters, Cleo and Dayle, and his daughter Debby. Doc was employed by The Northwest Mosquito Abatement District, as Field Supervisor, for 23 years but in his heart Doc was always a cowboy; riding and roping all his life. In fact, he was on horse back the day before his death. It was Doc's wish to be cremated and his family and friends will celebrate his life on August 15, 2015 at his Norco home where he lived for 60 years.
