Donald Derrie Cope, Sr., a singer, a father and most of all the best Grandpa someone could ask for has passed away.
We, his family are hurt and mourning his death. It really hit us hard. He was one of the kindest persons you would have ever met. Maybe you have met him on River Street, Savannah, Georgia. He was paralyzed from the waist down in 1991 and had been suffering for years due to this. Even though he was homeless he would get up every day to bless the world with his singing.
Donald was proceeded in death by his mother, Dora Mutcherson, father, Derrie Cope, his three brothers: Roger, Vicky and Warren Sr.
Mutcherson, and two sisters: Mable Smith and PennyBright Mutcherson.
He leaves surviving his children: Byron Tolbert, Shamika Tolbert, La’Donn Cope, Donald Cope Jr., Donna Charlton, Nikita Cope and twenty-one grandchildren.
He leaves to cherish his memory his two brothers: Gary and Allen Sr. (Carolyn) Mutcherson, four sisters: Dorothy Bamforth, Diana (Gregory) Cooper, Elizabeth Moore and Brenda Mutcherson. Donald also leaves behind a host of nieces, nephews, great and great-great grand nieces, nephews and other family members.
Services will be announced at a later date.Print This Obituary & Condolences
