Obituary for Jack Copeland

If immortality is true, then Jack Copeland certainly will live on through the influence he has had with the ones still living.
At the age of 16, he survived three months of forced march and three and one-half years as a P.O.W. during the Korean War. He then went on to have a brief stint dancing at Butler University, which led him in a big yellow convertible to Metro Goldwin Mayer, where he swam his way through Technicolor Esther Williams movie musicals. Returning to Indianapolis, he continued dance study at Butler, which then propelled him to Germany, England and Spain. He then brought his prodigious knowledge back to Indiana and for over 30 years he turned out many a professional dancer.
Mr. Copeland died March 30, 2005 at the age of 72. He is survived by innumberable dear friends: Margo, Billy, Nataly, Jonathan, Joe, Mell, Peggy, Carl, Theresa, David B., Dale, Rory...celebrities all.
JACK WOULD LOVE FOR YOU TO ATTEND THE BURIAL IN ALL BLACK COSTUME ACCOMPANIED BY A BLACK UMBRELLA PROP.
Contributions may by made to the Jack Copeland Memorial Boys Dance Scholarship Fund, 5144 Boulevard Place, Indianapolis, IN 46208
Jack would leave us with these words, "The best thing you can give anyone is TIME."
