Hustling for Hopkins

Brad Eric Hopkins, of Charlotte, was born April 7, 1971 and was called home to Heaven on January 15, 2018. He battled pancreatic cancer for over a year and fought with determination, courage, and faith.

He was a devoted husband, father, son, and brother whose commitment to God and to his faith in Christ was evident in every action and interaction. Brad touched so many lives and will forever be remembered by his family, friends, and those he served.

We are his Steele Creek (SCAA) family. Brad has served many years on the sidelines keeping score and cheering for all the kids playing their various sports. He was a dedicated Leader and Committee member of both BSA Pack 167 and Troop 167. Through scouting he touched the lives of many. Brad enjoyed spending time connecting with the youth at Good Shepherd United Methodist Church, joining in on their antics and mentoring them.

We want to make this an annual event to always remember Brad and support his loving family!
