I enjoyed watching the video tribute of Jack and his family at the funeral home and online. Jack was always such a kind and nice man. Your family is very fortunate to have had him in your lives for as long as you did. I always remember he and Audrey coming to my parents’ holiday parties. My deepest sympathy.
Kaye Daun left a message on April 30, 2021:
Dear Marilyn, Kevin, and David, I tried different ways to join you for Jack's final celebration, but nobody was available to bring me. I know that Jack and Audrey and your grandparents were very good, just like family, when Jim was in Milwaukee. I'm glad that Jack is no longer suffering and trying to make sense of the pandemic, nursing home and all these new rules. We were all blessed to have Jack for 93 years. May God's love surround you all as the rest of these people in Heaven are playing Sheepshead. In Sympathy, Kaye and Daun family

Dear Kevin and Family, My sincerest sympathy on the loss of your father. Pat did inform me of his passing on that Sunday, 18th. I know you were waiting on your brother’s return from FL for the service to happen. I will be thinking of all of you this Friday. Please extend my condolences to Marilyn. She may not remember me from the times I met her at your house. But what I remember is what a wonderfully warm and happy person your dad was and how he found another new love in his life. To live to be 93 is exceptional, almost a century. Imagine what he has seen and experienced in his lifetime. Celebrate all those thoughts. Love, Gundy

I was so lucky to be a part of Jack's extended family ever since my sister married Jack's son, Kevin. Jack, you will be missed . . . your warmth, your good nature, your welcoming smile and the hospitality of your home. You will be in my heart forever.
Terry Gibbons left a message on April 26, 2021:
I was so fortunate to share a few decades of life with Jack. So many memories of holiday dinners, social events and just simple conversations on the patio, with a few cocktails. Simply, he was a very good family man and made my life so much more enjoyable. He will always be remembered and my thoughts and prayers to everyone. I will be thinking of all of you this Friday.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Jenny and I send our deepest condolences to Marilyn and the family. Jack was a kind man. I sat next to him in choir and always enjoyed taking with him. We maintained that friendship after his choir days. Heaven welcomed him with open arms. We will miss him. Mike & Jenny Collins

We all are so fortunate to have known and adored Jack Koplin. He was a great addition to our Adult Choir, telling so many stories, spreading his laughter, sharing his friendship. Jack will be greatly missed on this earth, but welcomed in heaven as a new angel in the choir.

We always had so much fun and laughter during choir rehearsals!! Jack was a cherished member and once we are all back together again in choir, he will be missed dearly. My sympathies to Marilyn and Jack's family.

Marilyn and family, Steve and I send our condolences. You and Jack were one of the first people we met when we joined Christ the King (now Unity) and you both made us feel so welcome! For a while, Jack was our go to “tap on the shoulder” guy when we were an usher short, and he always just smiled and joined us. Keeping you all in our prayers. Love and hugs. Linda and Steve
Nancy and Paul Jaessing left a message on April 25, 2021:
Marilyn, Paul and I are so sorry for your loss. Jack always had a smile for us and you both were very friendly and welcoming when we first came to CTK. You and the family are in our prayers. God bless you and give you peace.
Gary Sutherland left a message on April 24, 2021:
I will forever be grateful to Jack & Audrey. They opened their home to me, fed me delicious meals (Audrey was a good cook). Jack taught me how to play sheepshead, but most important set an example as to how to conduct your life as a family man.

Kevin, I am sorry to hear of your loss. In reading your dad's obituary it is obvious he was loved and will be missed. Prayers for you and your family, Roger Wathen
