Obituary

“Dad, your pain and suffering has finally come to an end.  You have shown us what true heroes are made of.  May you find peace, solace, and happiness in the arms of those that have passed on before you.  We love you dearly and await the day we can see you again.”

Juan Manuel Lopez Sr., 82, was called by our Lord on Saturday April 15, 2017 in San Antonio, Texas.  Services will be held Saturday, April 22, 2017 at Fred Dickey Funeral & Cremation Services, 1320 Trey St. in Laredo, TX.  Visitation will be from 5:00 to 9:00 pm and a rosary will be recited at 7:00 pm.

He was born July 21, 1934 in Laredo, Texas.  He was the eldest of ten children born to Juventino López, Sr. and Maria de la Luz Sánchez-Uribe de López.  Mr. Lopez was a proud 8th generation Texan and a direct descendant of the pioneering families of the San Ygnacio and Zapata area, including Don Jesus Treviño, founder of San Ygnacio, Texas.  He served honorably in the U.S. Army and after his discharge from the military, he worked at Paul Young Chevrolet and later spent many years working at the Texas-Mexican Railway (Tex-Mex) in Laredo.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Juventino Lopez Sr. (1975), Maria de la luz Sanchez-Uribe de Lopez (1992); siblings: Maria del Carmen Bingham, Salvador Lopez, Juventino Lopez Jr., and Jaime Alfredo Lopez.  His beloved son, who he mourned for the past 27 years, Juan Manuel Lopez, Jr. passed away in 1990 and daughter Araceli Lopez.

He is survived by his loving children: Egla Garcia (Joel) of Houston, TX, Judith Lopez of Houston, TX, Alma Nelly Molina of Austin, TX, Maria de la luz Medrano (Ricardo) of Mission, TX, Jennifer Lopez (Eric Wickstrom) of Laredo, TX and Jose Ignacio Lopez of Denver, CO.  His grandchildren:  Gilbert, Joel Jr., Stephanie, Ricardo, Guillermo, Victoria (Jeremy), Edgardo (Elizabeth), Manuel (Lydia), Daniel, Felipe, Robert, David, Pedro, John (Josie), Gina, Samantha, Jarod, Jorge, Erica, and Megan. And his great grandchildren:  Gabrielle, Alexis, Zoey, Nathan, Maya, Dante, Autumn, Ethan, Mason, Leah, Audrey, Annabella, Jayne, and Jay. Brothers:  Jorge Amado Lopez, José Antonio Lopez, Victor Javier Lopez, Jesus Gregorio Lopez, and Gerardo Ignacio Lopez.  Also left to mourn him are numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.

Reciban nuestras condolencias. Isaías 33:24 dice que llegara el día en que nadie dirá "estoy enferma". Revelacion o Apocalipsis 21:4 dice que "Dios limpiara toda lágrima de los ojos y la muerte no sera mas". Por último en Hechos 24:15 dice que "va ha haber una resurrección". Notamos que en un futuro muy sercano Jehova Dios nuestro todopoderoso Muy pronto acabará con todo nuestro dolor y sufrimiento incluyendo las enfermedades y la muerte. Y además les devolverá la vida de nuestros seres queridos que hayan muerto.
