Phil Copenhaver passed into the presence of the Lord on May 25, 2019, after a long history of heart disease. Phil was born to Carl and Genevie Copenhaver on Jan. 17, 1951, in Dayton, Ohio. He was the oldest of five siblings. The family eventually moved to Kenwood in 1963. Phil graduated from Montgomery High School where he met the love of his life, Brenda Weidner. Phil enlisted in the U.S. Army at age 18 and spent three tours in Vietnam as a Crew Chief on a Medevac helicopter. Upon returning home, he married his love and they settled in Santa Rosa.

Phil leaves behind his wife of 42 years “Bunny,” his son Matt (Jessica Shaw) and two granddaughters, Amelia and Madelynn, sisters Elaine (Harry) Neiman, Gail (Ken) Uboldi, and brother Dan (Robin), and many nieces and nephews.
