Michael E. Coppedge
September 25, 1962 ~ November 13, 2023 (age 61) 61 Years Old
Michael Edward Coppedge, 61, of Crystal Lake, passed away unexpectedly on November 13, 2023. He was born in Joliet, IL, on September 25, 1962, to Everett and Janice Coppedge.
An alumnus of the College of St. Francis and Northern Illinois Law School, he dedicated his career to the judiciary, cherishing his time and the relationships made through a shared pursuit of justice.
He was the beloved husband of his high school sweetheart, Margaret "Meg" McCloud. Known to his grandchildren as "Grandpa Donut," Mike delighted in surprising them with donuts on Sunday mornings. His walks and conversations with Meg and his role as a steadfast listener to his son, Matt, showcased his deep love he had for his family.
Mike is survived by his wife, Meg; son, Matthew (Laurie) Coppedge; grandchildren, Cooper and Madelyn; mother, Janice; and sisters, Debbie (Larry) Shreve and Jacque (Phil) Arnold. He was preceded in death by his father, Everett.
A visitation will be held on Friday, November 17, from 3 pm until a service at 7:30 pm at Davenport Family Funeral Home and Crematory, 419 E. Terra Cotta Ave., Crystal Lake.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to a local animal shelter of your choice, honoring Mike's love for animals – especially cats and dogs.
