FROM AN OBITUARY IN THE DECEMBER 1964 “PRIMITIVE MONITOR,” WRITTEN BY ELDER EDGAR T. ALESHIRE:

Elder Haden Paul Copeland was born February 23, 1906, at Summit in Blunt Co., Ala., the son of Virgil H. and Bell Murry Copeland. He was married to Jimmie Alice Bodine October 25, 1925. He was baptized at Rocky Mount Church, Arab, Ala., in 1932 by ElderTom Flanning, was ordained to the full work of the gospel ministry in 1934, and was called to Rocky Mount Church at that time as pastor. He was the beloved pastorof Rocky Mount, Bush Hill (of Birmingham, Ala.), New Hope and Salem Churches at the time of his death, and had traveled often among the Primitive Baptists in twenty-four states. He was a mail carrier in the Arab community for eighteen years, had taught school in hisearlier years, and had firmed throughout most of his life. For some years he preached overradio stations WGSV in Guntersville and WVOK in Birmingham. Elder Copeland was wellknown in his own community and among the Lord's people as being a minister who wasunusually gifted in delivery and who was also very frequently called upon to conductfunerals, often as many as five in one week, for people of all religious persuasion.Elder and Sister Copeland were killed on a rain-slick highway in Cullman County, Ala.,

September 18, 1964.

 

Over two thousand people attended their double funeral heldSeptember 20, 1964, at Rocky Mount Church, and at which Elders C. M. Mills, A. B. Hall, W. O. Hunt, J. B. Watts and Lasserre Bradley, Jr., officiated. One of the many who wrote the Monitor office concerning Elder and Sister Copeland's deaths spoke of the fact that in his last discourse, preached within hours of his death, Elder Copeland used the words from II Corinthians, "Finally, brethren, farewell."
