Joseph Kirk Copeland

Died: Sept. 30, 2013

Joseph Kirk Copeland died at his home Monday.

Born Nov. 30, 1940, in Oklahoma City, Okla., he was the son of Dr. Joseph J. and Glenda Mullendore Copeland.

The family lived in Frederick, Okla., Denton, Texas, Knoxville, and Maryville.

Kirk graduated from West High School in Knoxville and Maryville College.

He worked for the Bank of Maryville, then was hired by Park Bank in Knoxville to work in the new computer department. From there, he went to the Aluminum Company of America in Alcoa, Union Camp Corp. in Savannah, Ga., Tennessee Forging Steel in Harriman, Siskin Steel in Chattanooga, and then to Magnovox/Philips Consumer Electronics in Greeneville in 1978, retiring in 2001.

Kirk enjoyed playing sports: soccer, softball, tennis and track, where he excelled in running hurdles.

In later years, he enjoyed riding the family's Arabian horse on mountain trails.

He was a member of First Presbyterian Church, Greeneville, and spent a number of years as a youth leader. He also enjoyed coaching youth soccer.

Kirk is survived by his wife: Kathleen; son: Matthew; daughter-in-law: Jodie Carter-Copeland; grandchildren: Gracie and Harris; sister: Karen Copeland Gray; brother-in-law: Meldrum (Terry) Gray; and nephew: Jolyon C. Gray.

His family also includes his mother-in-law: Gloria England Smith, and Cheryl and Richard Stoddard, Pamela and David Potter; six nieces and nephews and their spouses; eight great-nieces and great-nephews; his "other" sons: Kenny Benson, Jason Arthur, Deon Avery, and Nathan Humbard; and very special family friends: Bea, Steve, J., Jan, Tyler and Abby Corbitt.

Kirk was also close to his many Mullendore and Copeland cousins.

The date and time of the service at First Presbyterian Church, Greeneville, will be announced at a later date.

Kiser-Rose Hill Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
