It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Stephen Dean Copeland.

Steve was a longtime resident of Mechanicsville, Maryland. He passed away, surrounded by family and friends, in his home after a long and complicated battle with cancer. His devotion to his family and his firm belief in God supported him in his struggle and ultimately gave him peace. Steve went home to be with the Lord on November 20, 2020.

Steve was born into a military family on November 18, 1952 in Denver, Colorado. His family moved to several different states before finally settling in Maryland where he graduated from Crossland High School. He followed in his father's footsteps and worked in the printing trade for 40+ years and retired in 2015. He married his sweetheart, Nancy, in 1973 and celebrated over 47 years of marriage and they raised 3 children together.

Steve was a fun, loving and wild-spirited guy, always the life of the party. In addition to being a devoted husband, father, and grandfather, he enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, fishing, working on cars, gardening, cooking on the grill and drinking Bud Light. The past 22 years, he and his wife loved spending time with their grandchildren. He valued his role as "Pop Pop" above anything else.

Steve is survived by his beloved wife Nancy, daughter Angie Johnson (Joey), son Charlie Copeland (Caren), son Joseph Copeland (Megan), grandchildren Tiffany Johnson, Joey Johnson, Colin Copeland, Ethan Copeland, Graceson Copeland, Eliana Copeland and Carsen Copeland, and his 4 siblings, Phil Copeland, Kevin Copeland, JoJean Stern, Cindy Tracey and many family and friends.
