Fr Michael Koppel

It was with great sadness that we heard of the death of Fr Michael Koppel, who died peacefully at his sister’s home on 18th May. Fr Michael was ordained Priest on 25th July 1993, and then served at Sacred Heart, Exeter, with Fr Harry Doyle. He later Parish Priest at Okehampton and finally at Axminster, Lyme Regis and Seaton, where he spent 14 years. He was a well-respected and loved Priest, with an attractively dry sense of humour. He will be sadly missed by his brother priests and people. May he rest in peace.

Fr Michael’s body will be brought into the Church of St Mary, Lyme Road, Axminster, EX13 5BE at 6.30pm on Wednesday 25th May, followed by Vigil Mass, his Requiem Mass. His funeral will be at 11.30am on Thursday 26th May at St Mary, Axminster.
