Our People

Troy Coppage

President | E.A. Clore’s great-grandson

Troy’s last name is Coppage, but he is a Clore through and through. He started in the family wood shop during college, sanding and maintaining plant equipment. In the years since, he has mastered many of Clore’s traditional tools and techniques and has worked in all facets of the business. Today, Troy manages Clore when he is not designing or working on a piece of furniture.

Troy is the current Chief of the Madison County Volunteer Fire Company. When he stands still long enough, it’s usually to take a weekend away camping or to spend time with family. His newest passion is his first grandbaby, Milo!

Katelyn Blocker

Customer Service Representative

Katelyn is the first person to greet a visitor who walks into our offices. Katelyn worked in the Clore office on her summer breaks from college back in 2016 and 2017 after we announced we were going to close and we got busier than we ever imagined! Now she’s back and working in the office full time as our Customer Service Representative! Katelyn is Troy’s step-daughter. She and her husband, Jason, held their wedding reception in the Clore Showroom in 2022!

Billy Coppage

Master Craftsman | E.A. Clore’s grandson

From his early days in the workshop through his tenure as President of EA Clore, Billy has spent most of his time crafting fine furniture. And he’s still at it today!  His deliveries have taken him all over the United States with his wife, Bonnie as sidekick.

Billy served as Chief of the Madison County Volunteer Fire Company for seventeen years. He and Bonnie are grandparents to ten and great-grandparents to eight!
