A Neshoba County man who died in a motorcycle accident last week at Coy was remembered as a good man.

Bobby Keith Copeland, 63, died of injuries suffered after a motorcycle wreck on Mississippi 21 north Oct. 13.

Family members initially thought Copeland suffered a heart attack, which caused the accident, but Medical Examiner Allen Collins said an autopsy report showed no indication of a heart attack.

A retired truck driver, Copeland was a Vietnam veteran where he was awarded a Purple Heart and a Bronze Star Metal.

"He was as good a friend as you could ask for and a good man," said Walt Copeland, his nephew.

Dorothy Copeland said her son loved people and had "so many friends."

Copeland's motorcycle left the road about 6 p.m., just south of the Kemper-Neshoba line near Coy United Methodist Church, Neshoba County Sheriff Donnie Adkins said.

Philadelphia Police blocked several major intersections as deputies led and followed an ambulance as it made its way through town to Neshoba County General Hospital.

Philadelphia Police Chief Richard Sistrunk said that the ambulance was running "code," which means cardiopulmonary resuscitation was being performed in the ambulance and they were attempting to get to the hospital as quickly as possible.

In addition to his mother, Copeland was survived by his daughter, Stephanie Warnock of Lexington, S.C.; three grandchildren; and a brother, Kenny Copeland of Philadelphia.

Services for Copeland were held on Saturday at McClain-Hays Funeral Home Chapel.
