Ropers Coaches Bova Futura with Stanley and Vera

CBW is sad to report that Mrs Vera Roper, the founder of Ropers Coaches of Bradford, West Yorkshire passed away peacefully on 15 February 2021.

Vera started Ropers Coaches with her husband Stanley in 1972. Sadly he passed away on 24 February 2006, but Vera continued to run the business until she decided to finally empty her suitcase and retire in 2014 at the age of 80.

Vera leaves behind her son Ian, daughter Alison, son-in-law Alan and grandchildren Matty and Aimee.

Tour2Cruise took over the company in 2014 and continues to honour the Ropers name.
