Kenneth C. Kopsell, 74, of Woodstock and Apache Junction, AZ, passed away peacefully on July 7, 2023, with his family by his side.
A 1967 graduate of Huntley High School, Ken was a proud Veteran, having served as an aircraft repair mechanic during the Vietnam War. Following that, Ken worked as a mechanic for Illinois Bell and earned his Associate’s Degree, before turning to farming full-time. He was an avid reader who stayed up nights to read anything he could find – including his daughters’ school books.
Ken loved to ride his Harley-Davidson motorcycle around McHenry County and cross-country, often with his wife Kris on the back; they were married 54 years on June 29.
Ken is survived by his wife, Kris; daughters, Kari of McHenry, Kim (Chris) Strout of Charlotte, NC, and Kelli (Troy) Bunker of Mesa, AZ; sisters, Kathryn (Bob) Hendricks of Marengo and Nancy Ewing of Crystal Lake; numerous nieces and nephews; and six loving grandchildren.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Clarence and Eldoris Kopsell and sisters, Evelyn Kopsell and Joyce Oerkfitz.
Visitation will be held Monday, July 17, 2023 from 1:00pm until 5:00pm with a service at 4:30pm at Schneider Leucht Merwin & Cooney funeral home 1211 N. Seminary Ave Woodstock, IL 60098.
