John worked as a trader before retiring to spend more time with his family. He is predeceased by his parents Juan and Emilia Lopez, as well as his sister Jackie. John is the beloved husband of Lillian for 46 wonderful years. He is the devoted father to Kim and her husband Kevin, Steven, Jeannette, Jeffrey and his wife Kim. John is the caring brother to Joey, Raymond, Ruben, Patricia, Betty, Carmen, and Maria. He is survived by his grandchildren Anthony, Matthew, Tyler, Erik, Jaxon, Alyssa, Parker and Travis; as well as his great grandchild Anthony. He has a very special place in his heart for the NY Yankees. However John loved nothing more than spending time with his family. He was a man who fought with every breath to stay with them. For those of us that called him dad and Pa. He was our protector, our shoulder, a man that could never be replaced. A great light that heaven stole for itself.
John will be reposing at the Evergreen Memorial Funeral Home 1735 Rt 35, Middletown, NJ 07748 on Wednesday March 25, 2020 from 1 – 3pm.
