  1. I went to visit Henry Hoppe’s grave with my Dad Robert (Bob) M Hoppe on one memorial day and took the same picture of our family graves. Always looking to re connect with my Hoppe family. My Dad Robert M Hoppe past away in August 2019 he resided in Berkeley, Illinois. April 22 1937 – August 2019. So glad I found this page.
