Fred Henry Hopmann was born March 2, 1927, in Burton, Texas, son of Ed and Selma Rust Hopmann. He was baptized into the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ on May 22, 1927 at St. John's United Church of Christ by the Rev. Adolph Walton. He confirmed his faith on September 22, 1940, at the same church with Rev. Edwin Eiben officiating.

Fred attended Burton Schools and Blinn College.

On November 24, 1949 he married Marjorie Turner at St. John's United Church of Christ.

Mr. Hopmann attended training for State Troopers, and worked as a Trooper for two years near Houston. He then went to work for Goodyear Chemical in Houston, where he continued to work for 32 years.

In 1989 Fred retired, and a year later moved back home to Burton. He was active in the Burton Lions Club, the Burton Cotton Gin Festival, and in St. John's UCC. In November of last year, he returned to live in Alvin.

Mr. Hopmann is survived by his wife, Marjorie, of Alvin; two children and their spouses; Laura Sue and Gary Nelson of Pearland; and William and Cindy Hopmann of Alvin; grandchildren, Michelle and Michael Helton and Michael Nelson; brothers and sisters-in-law, Edward and Daulene Hopmann of Burton and Charlie and Gene Hopmann of Kerns, Texas; and numerous nieces and nephews.  He was preceded in death by his parents and one sister, Nora Lee Hopmann Guelker.
