On Sunday, July 19th, 2020, James Christopher Lopez, loving father of two children, passed away at age 36.

James was born on September 11th, 1983, in Albuquerque, NM to Jesse E. Lopez and Elizabeth M.

James was passionate about his business and his customers, taking pride in his work ethics and helping others.  James enjoyed drawing, movies, but most of all loved spending time with his two children, Destiny Alexandria Lopez and Christopher Ezekiel Lopez.  James not only prayed, but had a new found passion for mediating and stargazing.  He was ambitious and had a good sense of humor that will be greatly missed.  James was also a loving son, brother and husband.

 He is survived by his two children, Destiny and Chris, their mother Claudia, his parents, brother Jesse Lopez, sister Victoria Lopez and her fiancé Erik Rivera, their children Minika Rivera, Emma Rivera and Isabella Rivera, his godparents Joseph and Alexandria Lopez, and many other uncles, aunts and cousins.
