Filip Coppens, 41, born on January 25, 1971, in Sint Niklaas, Belgium, passed away on December 30, 2012. He was an international best-selling author known for his progressive and in-depth research into life's mysteries. Known as Philip Coppens in his professional life, he was a regular contributor and presenter in the History Channel's popular show, "Ancient Aliens." He was a mystic and a mentor to so many. Filip was married to author Kathleen McGowan, who he called his "twin soul" and was proud to be the stepfather to her three sons. He is survived by Kathleen and the children, his parents Anita and Leon, and his brother Tom. Filip shared his life with Kathleen in Europe and the US, and resided in the Los Angeles area at the time of his passing. Filip will be buried beside the Chartres-style labyrinth at the top of the hill in the memorial park, a place he loved and where he first proposed to Kathleen. Arrangements are under the direction of Forest Lawn, Glendale, CA.
