Rodney Grant Copley

July 21, 1966 — May 20, 2023

Rodney Grant Copley, 56, was involved in a motorcycle accident and passed away doing

what he loved on May 20th, 2023. He was born in Selma, Alabama to Fred W. Copley (deceased)

and Joyce K. Wolter (deceased) on July 21, 1966. Rod is survived by his long-term girlfriend

Carrie Scholl, his daughter Kaicy Copley, 27, his son Michael Holter, 35, his three grandsons

Ryler Holter, 14, Royce Holter, 9, Reggie Holter, 2, and his Uncle Duane Copley, 76.


Growing up in New Jersey, Rod spent most of his time fixing up old cars with his father Fred

and his Uncle Duane. As the years pressed on, he put his handy work to good use by building

homes, continuing to restore old classic cars, and customizing his own motorcycles. He never

met a job that he did not know how to complete.


His life took him to many different places, but he always said he loved his time in Minnesota

the most. He loved to talk about his memories of bass fishing and snowmobiling. When he did

make his way back to Colorado his free time was filled with frequent trips to the Sturgis

Motorcycle Rally, camping, and tinkering in his shed on many different projects. Recently, he

was restoring three Harley Davidson motorcycles, and was especially proud of his 1976

Shovelhead. He was also working on a golf cart that he was planning on cruising around Sturgis

to show off his handy work, and he had been fine tuning his 1977 Square-body Chevy truck.


Although Rod’s life was short, it was filled with many adventures. He was always

surrounded by outstanding people who cherished him for who he was. Everyone who knew him

would agree that although he was often stoic, he was a straightforward man who lived his life

for himself regardless of others’ opinions. He will be deeply missed but is with us always.


Rod was cremated per his wishes. There will be a celebration of life on Saturday July 22nd,

2023. The location has not been determined, but if you are interested in attending, please

reach out to obtain the details.
