William Allen Lopp III

November 21, 1970 — October 30, 2023

Bill was the cherished son of William Allen Lopp Jr and the late Susan Lopp. His siblings, Shannon (Sammy) Clayton and Sharlene (Bob) McAbee together with Elizabeth Lopp, played significant roles in his life's drama. His brother, Leonard Tice Lopp, predeceased him, and his daughter, Ashley Lopp, also took her exit before him. Bill is survived by his loving wife, Laura A. Lopp, and his daughters, Sara and Shannon Lopp, who were the apple of his eye.

After graduating high school, Bill answered the call to serve his country, a call he heard with the clarity of a trumpet's peal. From 1991 to 2015, he served in the Navy, Marines, Army National Guard, and then the Army. His service was a testament to his courage and his love for his country, a love as deep and wide as the ocean he sailed.

Bill was a man of many interests. He loved to fish, a pastime that was to him as soothing as a lullaby. He was also a hunter, a sport he approached with the same keenness of sight as a hawk. His love for karaoke was as infectious as his laughter, and he could often be found singing his heart out, much to the delight of his audience. Bill was an ardent treasure hunter, his spirit of adventure as boundless as the horizon. He loved to travel, his journeys taking him to places as varied and colorful as the characters in a Shakespearean play.

Bill was a man of love, humor, and adventure. His love was as constant as the northern star, as warm as a summer's day, and as deep as the ocean's depths. His humor was his shield and his sword, a beacon of light that could pierce the darkest gloom. His adventurous spirit was like a fire in his heart, a flame that never flickered, never dimmed.

In the words of the Bard, "All the world's a stage, and all the men and women merely players." William A. Lopp III, known to all as Bill, was a player who played his part with zest and gusto. His life was a play well performed, a play that will continue to inspire and uplift those who were fortunate enough to have been a part of his audience. His exit might have been untimely, but his performance was unforgettable. He will be missed, but his spirit will live on in the hearts and minds of those who loved him. His life was a song, a song that will continue to echo in the halls of memory.

Thus, we bid adieu to William A. Lopp III, a man who lived his life with passion and joy. He was a beacon of light in the lives of those who knew him, a light that will continue to shine even in his absence. His memory will be cherished, his life celebrated, and his spirit will continue to inspire. As the curtain falls on his life's play, we take solace in the knowledge that he lived his life to the fullest, and his performance was indeed a tour de force.
