In sadness, I wish to inform those who knew and loved my husband Brian Coppola that he has passed. Brian left us on June 18, 2021 but will always be in our thoughts and hearts. He is survived by his wife, Jennifer R. Coppola, son Anthony H. Coppola and beloved canine Charles Vincenzo Coppola. Also surviving are his parents, Joseph Coppola and Jill Coppola. In addition, siblings Jacqueline Coppola and husband Nick, Christopher Coppola and partner Trina, and Michael Coppola. Also surviving are his mother-in-law Gloria Markowitz and father-in-law David Markowitz. Many aunts, uncles and nieces and nephews also loved and adored him. To all of our grieving friends, who are too numerous to name, we acknowledge the love, support, and friendships that I will cherish forever. Please know that Brian was a good person with a big heart and a generous, loving man.
In lieu of flowers, any contributions to Anthony's educational fund would be greatly appreciated.
