Edward 'Junior' Popko
October 30, 2020
He was born on June 4, 1932, in Oma, Wisconsin, son of Edward and Anna (Kasieta) Popko.
Edward was a long-time paper carrier for the Daily Globe. He could often be seen pushing his lawnmower around town, and he would help older folks by doing errands for them. He lived a long fruitful life and had many friends in Ironwood.
He was preceded in death by his father, Edward Popko; mother and stepfather, Anna and Clarence Singleton; sisters, Francis Rodak and Dolores Hetzek; and brother, Donald Singleton.
Edward is survived by his sister, Bonnie (Daniel) Stella; sister-in-law, Patty Singleton; and numerous nieces and nephews.
The family thanks the nursing staff and Lori Zanella of Westgate Nursing, Rehabilitation and Assisted Living Facility for their assistance.
The family has chosen Ketola-Burla Funeral Home of Ironwood to honor Junior's legacy of life. You can leave a condolence or a tribute at mckevittpatrickfuneralhome.com.
