Carlos Camp Hopkins, 89, of Villa Rica, Georgia, passed away on August 28, 2023, surrounded by his family. He is the son of the late Carlos David Hopkins and the late Bessie Love Camp Hopkins. He was known by many names: Carlos, to those who knew him professionally; Camp, to those who knew him personally; and, Dee, to his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
He loved his family fiercely. Married to his best friend for 69 years, he and Martha shared a wonderful life raising their children and loving on their grandchildren and great grandchildren. After retirement, they made lasting memories traveling in their motor home all across North America. Camp was an avid sportsman. He loved the great outdoors and enjoyed a lifetime of hunting with his father, son, grandson, and many close friends.
The only thing he loved more than his family and the great outdoors was his Heavenly Father. He loved the Lord with all his heart. He served his church faithfully by teaching Sunday School for decades, and serving on countless boards and committees in support of the Lord’s work. He was a faithful prayer warrior, and always gave God the glory for everything good in his life.
He retired from Lockheed Corporation after 40 years where he began his career as a Tool Design Engineer. He also served as manager of many areas including Shipping, Parts and Spares, and the Product Support division. He served many years on the Lockheed Community Credit Union Board of Directors. He was an engineer-extraordinaire, loved and respected by those with whom he worked. He was proud of his service to his country in the United States Army. Because his work at Lockheed was critical to the defense of our country, he was deferred from serving in a combat role. But he held the highest regard for all in uniform and loved his country dearly.
In addition to his parents, he is preceded in death by his brother, Pascal Hopkins and his sister, Edith Sheats.
He is survived by his wife, Martha (Brinkley) Hopkins; son and daughter-in-law, David and Leann Hopkins; daughter and son-in-law, Kim and John Daniell; Grandsons, Camp Hopkins (Bailey) and Tyler Daniell (Meryl); Granddaughters, Heather Hicks (Jesse), Haley Sipe (David), Holly Hopkins, and Annie Daniell; Great Grandsons, Henry Hopkins and Elliot Hopkins.
The following will serve as pallbearers, David Hopkins, John Daniell, Camp Hopkins, Jesse Hicks, David Sipe and Tyler Daniell.
There will be a brief family-led graveside service at Mozley Memorial Gardens in Lithia Springs on Friday, September 1, 2023 at 10:30 AM. All are welcome to attend.
