Note from Bud Copp’s record:
Lyle David Copp thought his name was Russell Glenn Copp until he went into the Navy
and they told him the name on his birth certificate was Lyle David.
Note from Gloria Iverson Michael:
The doctor put Lyle David on Bud's birth certificate. That doctor changed the
name Grandma gave him & also my mom's name (Helen Marie Copp) from what
Grandma gave him. So the last 2 children ended up with different names on their
birth certificates & "Bud" or Russell Glenn didn't find it out until he went in the navy.
That may have been when Mom checked hers...that part I don't know.
Note from Dave Copp:
Harry and my dad, Bud Copp, were business partners in a Service Station in
Ladysmith when he returned from WWII; probably in 1946. Neither the
partnership nor the business was successful. My father returned to the
Ladysmith Bakery (a job he hated his whole life) and worked there until he died at the age of 52.
