Richard "Dick" P. Kopp

September 28, 1932 — January 5, 2022

Richard “Dick” P. Kopp, 89, of Camillus, passed away Wednesday at St. Joseph’s Health Hospital. Born in Syracuse, he was a graduate of St. Anthony of Padua and St. Andrew's Seminary in Rochester. Dick retired from naval service as a senior chief petty officer. He was "piped over" at retirement from the last of seven ships, guided-missile cruiser USS ALBANY (CG-10). He later worked as an Air Force suggestion program manager and then with the Army as a communications analyst. Dick volunteered as a van driver for Fairmount Gardens and Solvay Senior Apartments. He was also an avid tennis player but above all, loved spending time with his family.

Dick was predeceased by his wife, Mary Ann in 2019; parents, Lawrence and Florence Kopp; stepmother, Angelina Kopp; uncle, Philip Kopp; and aunt, Catherine Kopp.

Surviving are his daughter, Julie (Marco) Kopp of Modena, Italy; son, Paul Kopp of Varese, Italy; stepson, John Devine of Marcellus; stepdaughters, Mary Hadden and Barbara Wisneski, both of Solvay; seven grandchildren; and six great-grandchildren.

There will be no calling hours.

A funeral Mass will be celebrated Tuesday, January 11 at 10 a.m. in Holy Family Church. Dick will be laid to rest in Onondaga County Veterans Memorial Cemetery with full military honors.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to one's favorite charity.
