Steven Michael Kopchinski, Jr. was born on August 19, 1981 to Rina (16) and Steven, Sr. (19) Kopchinski in Philadelphia, PA.
Your best friend and sister is born! Rina Marie (Jr.) is born on September 30, 1982. Only 13 months apart, it was like having twins! The both of you were inseparable for so long. You grew to help take care of each other through the years, in your own ways.
On May 11, 1995 our Emily Marie was born! We were all so happy and now she had 4 parents! Steven was 13 and Rina was 12 years old when she was born. They watched her birth in the hospital and they got to hold her before Mom and Dad. She is such a joy in our lives! Steven always showered her with kisses and hugs all day long! Emily looks a lot like Rina and acts exactly like Steven! His grandmother said, at the time of his death, Emily was the child he would never have! He adored her. He always spoke of having his own family some day.
Steven graduated Bensalem High School in June 2000. He was in the R.O.T.C. for 9th & 10th grades and on the VARSITY golf team all four years of high school!
Steven passed away on March 25, 2004 at the age of 22, in our home. He passed away in his sleep of a blood clot in his heart. He was scheduled for a sleep study two days after he died for possible sleep apnea. It is thought that he had undiagnosed obstructive sleep apnea which contributed to his death. He also just came out of rehab 1 month before. Everyone was so happy to have him back.
