Donald Ray “Don” Hopkins passed away surrounded by his loving family, on Tuesday, March 21, 2017, after a short illness. He was 83 years old. Don was born on July 9, 1933 in Oklahoma City and grew up in Bethany, Oklahoma. He graduated from Putnam City High School and later Oklahoma City University with a Bachelor's degree in Industrial Arts. In 1955, Don married Janyth Lee “Jan” Stanmire.
