In Memory of Larry Hoppen, Co-Founder of the band Orleans

Thea Kincaid and I had the opportunity to meet and spend time with Larry and Lance Hoppen earlier this year when Orleans came to New Bern.

We are saddened by the news of his death. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.

Larry’s legacy will continue through his music. He’s “Still the One” to us!

Watch our video to see Larry and Orleans perform in concert in New Bern.

May you rest in peace, Larry Hoppen.

About New Bern Now
Editor-in-Chief, Wendy Card, founded New Bern Now in April 2009. There were a number of reasons she developed the website. While stationed in Washington DC, she had 30 days to transfer to Naval Hospital Cherry Point and didn’t know much about the area. She was frustrated because there wasn’t a central location on the Internet for information about New Bern. Wendy retired from the Navy in Oct 2007. When our economy dived, she was trying to find her way in life and decided to give back to the community by creating a website that provided a “One Stop, Information Shop” to help people find out what’s happening in our community along with creating a free business listing to help business owners who couldn’t afford to advertise.
