    I met Mike only twice but remember him being kind and easy to talk to. I have long admired his artistic skills and his skills at detail and at least two very different periods in his very effective use of color, Dan Nelson

    I met Mike in college and it was one of the best things I’ve ever done. We painted houses together, tromped around the mountains, and loved each other’s dogs. We shared our dreams. I could depend on his practical wisdom when I would “fly away.” He was a wonderful artist, and my world and everyone else’s is smaller now. Douglas Wolfe

    Our deepest sympathy to you, Amy, and your family. We were saddened in hearing of Mike's passing. We were lucky to see his creativity at work at one of our clients' house. He gifted us a water color painting. We enjoyed his company at the Canyon Ranches meetings. May your memories comfort you. Jeff and Cindy March

    I would have to ditto everything Brenda said above. I had the honor and privilege of working with Mike for many years at IMH and never was there a time running into him during the day that didn’t make my day better. Conversation, his gentle and caring spirit always made me smile. One time I was struggling to get a full size bed with a patient on it into the elevator for transfer up to 3rd floor when along came Mike. While everyone else just passed by, Mike grabbed one side of the bed and helped me get them on and off the elevator and even to their room! That was the friendship of Mike I will always remember and treasure. What an artist, his watercolors amazing, the trees a treasure, but one of my favorites will always be the ‘shadow tree’ in the stairwell we always took from OPS to first floor or up to third. Thank you Mike. My life is definitely richer having known you and called you friend.

    Our condolences to Amy, Whitney, Molly, Radley, and Steve, Mike’s brother-in-law. Daily, we enjoy artistic creations that Mike gifted us with for our home. We remember his kindness and compassion given to my brother Chuck, his father-in-law as my brother was in the last days of his life on earth. We ask God to bring his comfort to family and friends, as they grieve Mike’s passing. In the name of Jesus, our savior amen from aunt Carole and uncle Donn.

    The loss of Mike Kopp to this world is immense. His talent, warmth, and simplicty will live on throughout the halls of Ivinson Hospital where he gifted so many of his greatest works. He was so generous with his wisdom on life.. wanting only the simplicity and peace of the mountains of Wyoming , his grandson and his beloved dogs. We all knew Mike to be open, honest and heartfelt. God Bless him. Brenda Page


    Mike was a really great person and I enjoyed working with him for a number of years. We had so many great talks together and he was a great support to me during a very sad time in my life. He was kind and caring and such a great artist. I am so sad that he has left this world but I know he is well now. Leslie
