Leroy was a truly remarkable individual who will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him. He was a kind and loving person whose heart knew no bounds when it came to his friends and family. Leroy's love for them was immeasurable and formed the backbone of his entire existence.

Beyond his unyielding devotion to his loved ones, Leroy had a zest for life that was truly contagious. He had an unmistakable passion for singing and dancing to oldies but goodies. Leroy’s enthusiasm on the dance floor was infectious, spreading smiles and creating memories that will forever be cherished.

Another notable aspect of Leroy’s vibrant personality was his unique fascination with rocks and petrified wood. Throughout his lifetime, Leroy collected pieces of earth from every friend or family member who traveled, forming a stunning collection that stood as a testament to his love and curiosity about the world around him.

Throughout his life, Leroy touched the hearts of everyone he encountered, leaving an indelible impact that will be long remembered. His legacy extends far beyond his family, with countless individuals fortunate enough to have been touched by his unwavering love and silly personality.

He was preceded in death by his father Heraclio Lopez, his mother Margaret Lopez, his sister’s, Patricia Lopez, Susie Lopez and Isabel Perez, his brother’s, Nester Zamora, and Johnny Lopez.
