Carolyn Marcus says:

My condolences to Mrs. Beth Hopkins and family. I worked with Dr. Hopkins, as a physician extender at Today’s Woman in Winston-Salem. Dr. Hopkins was my medical supervisor and mentor from 1996-2011. I will always be grateful to him for the knowledge in women’s health care he shared with me and his humility in working with the staff and patients. He was a patient, compassionate listener and a servant leader. I was able to realize my desire in providing prenatal care with his leadership. Under his guidance many healthy babies were born. His wonderful works will be remembered.

Vanita Faye Craven-Boger says:

Words cannot even begin to express our sorrow. May your heart and soul feel peace and comfort.
Rest In Peace Dr. Hopkins

I remember fondly working with Dr. Hopkins in the Operating Room at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. He was always such a caring physician and a gentleman. Not being from the Winston Salem area, it was several years until I realized his history at Wake Forest and the fact that he was a member of the Board of Trustees. His demeanor was always kind and respectful. Sincere condolences to the Hopkins family. He will be sorely missed.

Nathan Hatch says:

While the name Larry Hopkins first became known to the Wake Forest family through his accomplishments on the football field, throughout his career he honored the University’s motto Pro Humanitate, serving the community in exceptional ways as a beloved physician, leader and mentor. As a teacher, he shared his deep knowledge and selflessly offered his wisdom. As a trustee, he lent us his vision and drove our aspirations. And as a friend, he always had a ready smile and listening ear. Wake Forest has lost a giant in our community.
