William Earl “Billy” Hopkins


Mr. William Earl “Billy” Hopkins, 50, of Greenbush, passed away Friday, Oct. 9, 2020, at his home. Born March 31, 1970, in Nassawadox, he was the son of the late Nannie Virginia Colona Hopkins and Aubrey C. Tipton.

Known as a “Jack of all trades,” Billy was a self-employed carpenter, painter, and lawnmower repairman.

In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his brother, Glen Hopkins, and sister, Wanda Sue “Wendy” Taylor.
