We live in Kanata, Ontario. On Jan 1, 2001 Kanata was officially amalgamated within the city of Ottawa.
In May 2000 we vacationed in UK and Laurie-Ann met Tony's family for the first time. During the trip we went with my mother to Holy Trinity, Brompton, the source of the Alpha Course. We also visited Tony's sisters Dianne in Kingston and Denise in Scotland, and his son James and daughter-in-law Kathy in Lyneham. See some of our holiday photos.
The immediate family includes an "adopted son" John Okello. He lives in Migori, Kenya, in an orphanage set up by Bishop John Okinda. We also have an "adopted daughter" Jeane Silva, in Brazil. Tony's previous wife Annmarie and he sponsored Jeane through World Vision in Feb 1992, and supported her with a monthly amount till December 2006, when she was 19. She is very beautiful.
In 2008, Tony finally started on a project he had planned for years: making the home movies available for
family and friends to see.
Visit Home Movies.

The Copple Family Archive
In December 2003, Tony burned a CD of audio memories of 1965 - 1978 and gave copies to family members at Christmas. For Christmas of 2004 he sent out "Second Decade" with memories of musical productions that James had performed in at Beeston and Gresham's schools.
