Thank you all for joining our family on this day of remembrance. We gather to mourn the loss of a wonderful human being, but more importantly to celebrate the life of Jose Lopez, IV.
Better known as Joe to his many friends, and Joey to his family, he was a strongly devoted family man. A loving, gentle, patient father, he raised strong, beautiful daughters. Joe gave us all a lifetime of love and laughter; he always had a joke or funny story to share. Unfortunately, many were not great. His children crowned him King of the Worst Dad Jokes, but his jokes made us laugh anyway. Joe was a respected member of the community, loyal, hard-working, with never a negative word to say about anyone. He was strong in character and integrity, lending a hand where ever it was needed. When he fired up his grill at a gathering, many would say the best BBQ in the world was on the way.
His smiling eyes, easy grin and infectious laugh brought light into any room he entered, and the world suffers without it. Each of us felt that glow on our face and the spark it created in our hearts. Now we must all take the spark of these wonderful memories and share the light that was, and is, Joe Lopez.
He is survived by his wife, Tammye Fuentes of Wortham; daughters, Devyn McLain of San Antonio and Madison Lopez of Wortham; sisters, Becky Baggett of New Mexico and Nina Ornelas of California; grandson, Jonathan McLain of San Antonio and nephew, Ramin Farsi of New Mexico.
