OBITUARY Print

 

Angel Lopez went to be His Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on March 21, 2021. He went away from the body at his earthly home in Oldsmar, Florida, in peace and full confidence that he would awake in the glorious presence of His Lord. As the beloved patriarch of his family, he will be greatly missed. He was admired and loved by an extended network of friends and brothers and sisters in Christ across the country and the world.

Angel was born on August 1, 1933 in Camagüey, Cuba to Margot Flores and Jose Manuel Lopez. Angel came to know the Lord at age 17 when he heard the gospel, repented of his sins, and put his faith in Christ alone. Angel faithfully followed Jesus Christ for the rest of his life. He attended Instituto Biblico Pentecostal Manacas Las Villas in Cuba, graduating from there in 1959 and serving as a pastor throughout Cuba until he moved to the United States in 1968. Angel thanked the Lord for His graciousness and kindness in allowing his family and him to escape communism and build a new life in America. Angel loved this country and was well known for his patriotism and gratitude for the blessing of being a United States citizen.

Angel married Lilia Escobar in 1960 after meeting in Bible college in Cuba. They were married for nearly 62 years. The Lord blessed them with three children – Raquel, Angel, and Adonis - and a loving daughter-in-law, Lina Gonzales. Those children gave them five grandchildren – Vanessa Alabarces, Illiana Alabarces, Jessica Lopez, Zabdiel Ruiz, and Marian Ruiz. Angel was given the nickname, “Tata” by his first granddaughter Vanessa and the nickname has been used by every generation since. Angel was blessed to know and love four great grandchildren – Daniel Jr. (DJ) Lopez, Briana Lopez, Adriana Lopez, and Xander Wise.

Angel had a large, loving family both here in America and in Cuba, including his brothers Carlos Lopez (deceased) and Jose Ramon Lopez, sisters Maria del Carmen Lopez, Diana Lopez, Nelsa Perez, and Cristina Perez. He had many nieces, nephews and other relatives who loved him dearly and mourn his departure from this world but rejoice that he is now in the presence of His Savior.

Angel is survived by his wife Lilia, their children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.

Angel is also survived by his two cats, Nene and Kiki, who he doted on lovingly. 

A service will be held this summer. Please contact the family for more details.

His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’  Matthew 25:21

Angel López se fue con el Señor y su Salvador a una morada mejor, libre de sufrimientos y tristezas y un día nos reunimos con el. Cerro sus ojos en este mundo el 21 de marzo de 2021 y los abrió en la presencia de su Señor. Angel era el amado patriarca de su familia y lo vamos extrañar mucho.

Angel se caso con Lilia Escobar en 1960 después que se conocieron en el Institute Biblico. Estaban casados 62 años. El Señor lo bendijo con tres hijos – Raquel, Angel, y Adonis. Esos hijos lo dieron cinco nietos – Vanessa Alabarces, Illiana Alabarces, Jessica Lopez, Zabdiel Ruiz, and Marian Ruiz. Vanessa, la primera nieta, le dio el apodo “Tata” y todos los nietos y bisnietos lo llamaban así. Angel estaba bendecido a conocer y amar cuatro bisnietos - Daniel Jr. (DJ) Lopez, Briana Lopez, Adriana Lopez, and Xander Wise. Angel tenia seis hermanos – Carlos Lopez que fallecio antes de Angel, y Jose Ramon Lopez, Maria del Carmen Lopez, Diana Lopez, Nelsa Perez, y Cristina Perez que sobreviven.

 

Vamos a tener un servicio este verano. Contacta la familia para mas detalles.

En su vejez, adoptaron dos felinos, Nene López y Kiki López, como terapia y le fue de mucha ayuda. Angel cuidaba esos gatos como familia y los querido felinos lo extrañan mucho.

Y su señor le dijo: Bien, buen siervo y fiel; sobre poco has sido fiel, sobre mucho te pondré; entra en el gozo de tu señor.   Mateo 25:21
