He was born to the parents Robert and Linda Kopecky on June 21, 1971, in Pasadena, Texas. On Sept. 18, 1999 he married his loving wife, Sherry Kopecky, and together they raised three beautiful children, Joseph, 12, Ayden, 6, and Noah, 5.

Also, Uncle Eddie (Jane) and Raymond (Barbara) Seils; a sister, Elizabeth Ann Moore; aunts, Jeannie (Mike) Emmons-Corso, Rosie and Willemina Kopecky; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
