Cecil N. Hopkins

It is with great sadness that our family announces the passing of our beloved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather Cecil (Hoppi) N. Hopkins of Santa Maria.

Cecil was born on May 28, 1937 in San Diego to Clayton and Hattie Hopkins and died at home on July 21, 2020. He had two brothers Clayton and John Hopkins and two sisters Frances Brewer and Sharon Silva.

Hoppi worked in the oil and trucking industries for many years. He owned R&H Trucking until his retirement in 2009. Although he did retire, Hoppi truly never stopped working.  He enjoyed staying busy.  He started recycling oil a few days per week for several trucking companies.

He is survived by his wife of 59 years Julia Hopkins; children Cecilee (Hopkins) Nanini, Mark Hopkins (Amina), Julie (Hopkins) Chase, Patricia Sepe (Mark), David Hopkins (Karen); eight grandchildren Joseph Cavazos, R.J. Nanini, Alissa Nanini Vargas, Christine Chase, Kyle and Ryan Sepe, Mathis Hopkins and Aliana Hopkins; and four great grandchildren.

He is preceded in death by his parents Clayton, Hattie; stepmother Joyce; siblings Clayton, John, Frances; and son Steven Hopkins.

Internment will be held at a later date. To leave a condolence for the family, visit www.dudleyhoffmanmortuary.com.
