Donna- Julio Cesar Lopez, 58, went to be with the Lord on Monday, October 2, 2023 at Doctors Hospital at Renaissances in Edinburg.
Mr. Lopez was born on November 24, 1964 to Mr. Roberto Lopez and Mrs. Maria Eva Lopez in Wasco, California.
Left to cherish his memories are his Loving Wife, Silvia Lopez; his son, Julio Cesar Lopez Jr.; his daughters, Erika (Emmanuel) Lopez, Crystallee Lopez; his parents, Mr. Roberto Lopez and Mrs. Maria Eva Lopez; his brothers, Roberto Lopez Jr., Moises Lopez, David Lopez, Josue Lopez; his sister, Norma Longoria and 8 grandchildren.
Pastor Julio was a man of many descriptions, but there's one thing everyone agrees on: he was the embodiment of love and selflessness. His life was a testament to his unwavering dedication to helping others. Alongside his beloved wife, First Lady Sylvia Lopez, he devoted himself to his ministry, leading countless souls to Christ, feeding the hungry, clothing the needy, and spreading the message of God's love across borders.
He was a beacon of positivity, his infectious smile radiating warmth and joy wherever he went. His heart was always open, and he made friends with everyone he met. Whether it was a small gathering or a grand BBQ, Pastor Julio welcomed all with open arms, ensuring no one left hungry or without a smile.
His availability was legendary; he was just a call away for those in need. His prayers were powerful, and his compassion knew no bounds. Pastor Julio's capacity to love, even in the face of wrongs done to him, left a lasting impression on those who knew him.
In times of trial, he never wavered, always declaring, "This is a blessing" or "Este es un Bendicion." While we mourn his absence on this earthly plane, we are forever grateful for the profound legacy he leaves behind in our hearts and in the world. Pastor Julio's love, compassion, and unwavering faith have touched lives far and wide, and his memory will continue to inspire us to walk in the path of love and service he so beautifully exemplified.
We come together now to honor the life of a man who made the world a better place, whose kindness and love knew no bounds. As we gather to say our goodbyes, let us also remember that his spirit lives on in the love we share and the kindness we extend to others.
