James "Jim" Albert Copeland, 58, of Sacramento went to be with the Lord Thursday, July 15, 2010. He was preceded in death by his parents, Wilford and Lorrine Copeland; and two sisters, Rita Faye and Fredricka Copeland. He was a member of Sacramento United Methodist Church. Yet through all of his accomplishments, his most prized and greatest joy was being a husband, dad and papaw.

Survivors include his wife of 37 wonderful years, Karen Copeland of Sacramento; four children, Carrie Miller (Shawn Miller) of Utica, Chris Copeland (Karla Copeland) of Owensboro, Candy Ashley of Maceo and Gary (Scooter) Ashley II of Sacramento; seven precious grandchildren, Brooke, Brad, Shawn II, Ashley, Jacob, Austin and CJ; five sisters, Anna Haws, Marma Handley, Kay Sutton, Debbie Copeland and Laura Copeland; and seven brothers, Jesse Copeland, Donald Copeland, Velton Copeland, Rickey Copeland, David Copeland, Anthony Copeland and Michael Copeland.

Services are Monday at Sacramento United Methodist Church, with Brother Marvin and Marilyn Lagle officiating. Visitation is from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., followed by his burial service. Tucker Memorial Chapel in Sacramento is in charge of arrangements.
