Hopf collapsed while on his bicycle on the Olympic Discovery Trail near Place Road west of Port Angeles, Sheriff Bill Benedict said.
“His death was natural causes,” Benedict said. “He just collapsed while bicycling and died at the scene.”
Benedict did not know Hopf’s exact age but estimated that he was in his 60s.
Hopf had worked for the assessor’s office for decades, Benedict said and was a sheriff’s deputy before that.
