PITTSBURGH –Speaker of the Pennsylvania House Mike Turzai (R-Allegheny) issued the following statement upon the passing of Joseph Hopper, formerly of Moon Township and more recently, Sewickley:

“I am so sad to hear of the loss of Joe Hopper. Citizens from all over western Pennsylvania will mourn his passing as he was the consummate professional as a deputy district attorney in Allegheny County. He was also a loving and dedicated husband and father. I knew Joe and his family from Moon Township, attending local Catholic schools with his children. Joe suggested that I come to work at the district attorney’s office and helped me get my position as an assistant district attorney. He was a mentor to me and many others in the office. He was fair, honest, above-board, thorough and detailed. He was respectful to everyone. My deepest sympathy to his wife, Loretta, and his children, Lori, Patrick, Michael and Shawn.”
