Alfred

August 24, 1927 ~ June 24, 2020

Born in: Gilbert, AZ
Resided in: San Bernardino, CA

Alfred N. Lopez was called home in a peaceful manner with his beloved wife Betty by his side in California on Tuesday, June 24, 2020. His life was well lived and he was well loved. He was a quiet, kind and gentle man, holding the highest integrity in business and in family life. He was a WWII Army veteran. His passion was singing in his church choir for 50 years and singing in the Pala Singer choir for 25 years.  Betty will always remember Alfred as being the best husband she could have ever asked for, as well as his amazing dancing skills.

He was predeceased by his parents Nicholas and Refugio and his son Eric. He is survived by his wife of 52 years Betty.  He is also survived by his loving children Robert, Margo, Kathy, Yvonne and Tina. He is also a proud grandfather to April, Alfredo, Brandy, Denise, Richard, Deanna, Natalie, Derek, Helena, George, Alicia and Mason. And an even more proud great-grandfather to Nicholas, Roman, Aaron, Ezekiel, Gabriela, Esvardo, Elias, Krystyne, Alexandria, Janie, Fiona, Georgiana. And to top it all off a great, great-grandfather to Naomi, Blaire, Xavier, Zachary and Anand.

Memorial services will be held Wednesday, July 8, 2020 at 10:30 a.m. at Calvary Chapel South Bay, Gardena, California.

Alfred will be forever remembered by his beautiful smile, gentle eyes, caring heart, loving embrace and unconditional love.  Although our hearts are heavy, we will celebrate his life and find comfort that he is in heaven watching over us.

When you think of Alfred, celebrate the good memories you have of him.  Remember that life is fragile and short and should be lived to the fullest.

  1. candle 7Mrs. Lopez, my deepest condolences, thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family.

  2. candle 4Al Lopez,
    We love you more then words can say. You had such a huge heart. We have wonderful memories of you and mom playing Santa and Mrs. Clause. Our grand daughter Paisley was so delighted when you called and left her a message from Santa. You and mom we’re always there for the Glenn family when we lost Jewel and Edgar. We have great memories of family gatherings at your house. Jennifer had the pleasure of introducing you to her love Steve. The last time we got to see you was on last fathers day. Our granddaughters got to meet you. My last conversation with you was on Monday, June 23rd. I said to you ”A bushel and a peck and a hug around your neck I love you.” And you responded with ”I love you.” Thank you dad for always being you. We love you

  3. candle 7G-pa, we love and miss you so very much! I know you are looking down on us and will continue to watch over us and guide us when we need it. We will all see you again, but until then, remember you are always in our hearts and minds! Love you always! April, Louie, Nicholas, Roman and Aaron.

    Broken Chain
    We little knew that morning that
    God was going to call your name.
    In life we loved you dearly,
    in death we do the same.

    It broke our hearts to lose you,
    you did not go alone;
    for part of us went with you
    the day God called you Home.

    You left us peaceful memories,
    your love is still our guide;
    and though we cannot see you,
    you are always at our side.

    Our family chain is broken,
    and nothing seems the same;
    but as God calls us one by one,
    the chain will link again.

  4. candle 4I just wanted to share how much Al meant to me. I have known him since I was a boy and he has always meant a lot to me. He gave me one of my first jobs where he worked, I didn’t stay but a few weeks because of the noise but I was forever grateful. I have always seen how happy he made Betty and a great father to the girls. That is what made him the person he was to me, the love for his wife and girls. He will forever be a part of my life.

  5. candle 7Our most deepest condolences to the entire family. Al will always be remembered for his kind and loving nature. May the wonderful memories bring you comfort. May he Rest In Peace. Our prayers are with you.

  6. candle 1Dear Grandpa & Grandma, I would not be where I am or who I am today without you. Love you dearly and miss you everyday. Thank you for all the amazing dances Grandpa. I hope you are dancing in heaven. Love, Alicia
