Killian Wilson Hopkins

November 17, 2016

Killian Wilson Hopkins,14, went home to Jesus, November 17, 2016. He was born in Charlotte, NC, February 22, 2002.

Killian had a huge heart and loved teaching Sunday School, serving refugees, Marvel comics, mixing it up on the Rugby field and being outside as much as possible. He delighted in being barefoot and exploring and never met a tree he did not want to climb. He was 100% boy and wore his scratches and scars with deep pride. He was an artist and an adventurer and he loved with abandon.

He will be dearly missed by many friends and extended family, and especially his loving sisters, Sloane 16, and Skylar 12, his adoring mother, Deb and his proud father, Dennis who would not have traded him for the world.

A service to celebrate his life will be held 1:00 PM Monday November 21, 2016, at Warehouse 242, where the family will greet friends following the service. Due to limited parking availability, carpooling is encouraged.

Memorials in memory of Killian, may be made to the Warehouse 242, 2307 Wilkinson Blvd., Charlotte, NC, 28208. 

Arrangements are in the care of Kenneth Poe Funeral & Cremation Services, 1321 Berkeley Avenue, Charlotte NC 28204. Phone: 704 641-7606 Online condolences at
