Dr. Copeland spent his life committed to supporting this community that he loved so much. Whether it was through teaching karate classes to youth, self defense classes for women, seminary classes to men and woman of the gospel both locally, nationally and international through his accredited bible collage, working in the Orangeburg School District 5, or just always finding something to give to the community such as clothes, food, school supplies or anything and everything you could imagine. We invite you our friends and family in the Orangeburg Community to come out and celebrate a man that has touched so many of our lives and gave so much to the this Community.
In 2019, Mayor Butler proclaimed that August 2 would forever be established as Richard Allen Copeland Day in the City of Orangeburg, SC and We, his family and friends, have decided that his Name and Legacy will live on forever through our commitment to celebrating his life, legacy, and loves every year on the first Saturday of August.
