Ruben M Lopez Jr Born: June 23,1977 deceased January 26, 2021. This is the story of my son Ruben M Lopez Jr who was known to his family and friends as CARE BEAR. He was cuddly and loving in many ways to know him was to understand him. As a little boy who was always Smiling one could not resist but to stop and want to cuddle him. He was born In East Los Angeles at 9:30 PM first born son of Ruben Lopez and Izzie Lopez. He grew up in Monterey Park later to finish high school at Colton High school in Colton.CA. Attended collage majoring as a Drug and Alcohol counselor Obtaining a bachelor’s degree. Being profoundly and deeply raised as an ordained minister in bible teachings and principals. He carried these teachings in his everyday life. Especially when it came to helping others to change their course of life plus using his own experiences to help motivate and mentor others. Due to his loving and affectionate ways and hugs at times the name CARE BEAR became official. He also loved selling solar panels his saying was one solar panel at a time. He was well loved by all who crossed his path during his life journey. His two sons were his life His oldest son Ruben Robert Lopez age 14 and his youngest Rolando Meshach Lopez age 8, Mother to his son Elizabeth Rodriquez. He has left us with two precious gifts his legacy. He enjoyed the outdoors his favorite get away was going to Big Bear and enjoying the sunsets and sometimes sunrise. He enjoyed camping, fishing with his family he leaves his sons with beautiful moments and memories of those times. He taught his boys to love one another deeply and take care of each other no matter what. He carried many of his father and mother teachings onto his children. As he once wrote in his father obituary the following words sum up words that hit his heart the most one of his father’s Analogy; “You can give a man a fish and feed him for a day but if you teach a man how to fish you will teach him for a lifetime” those words were engraved in his mind by his father which helped him understand the meaning of hard work, the meaning of valuing ones values of honest work striving to provide the best for ones family as my son did to be the best example to his two sons. He later meets the love of his life Christina Castillo whom he addressed her as his wife to family and friends. Knowing Gods’ principles as to do what is pleasing in Gods eyes, they were going to get married end of January. He had a bright future ahead with many plans, he was ecstatic of a new beginning. In this time frame a Pandemic called Covid – 19 took my sons life. My comfort is knowing and having the hope of the resurrection in which Jehovah God will abolish death forever as mention in Rev 21:4 “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the former things have passed away.” Even through our hearts are broken at this moment and perhaps to the end of our own journey, we know that we have a loving and understanding God. As Psalms 147:3 mention: “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” Beautiful words Jehovah God knows the loss of a love one, for God also experience a loss of his son Christ Jesus who gave up his life for our sins. My son left us not knowing what happen he will awake along with his father side when their names are to be called when all will be called out from their dwelling place of sleep known as the resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:21) His internment will be by his father. He will be missed by his brothers Rodney S Lopez and Randy J Lopez, you knew when all three were together it was laughter for you never knew what to expect of them, I will miss those days. He will be missed by His Nana Elisa Lopez whom he was dearly close to growing up and as an adult cherished her profoundly. His Aunts, Uncles, cousins and all who’s hearts he touched will miss him dearly. Rest my son you will always be my little boy in my eyes I am so proud of you, once day we will see each other face to face and I will hug you and tell you how much Mom loves you and how much many cherished you. From his brother Randy J Lopez Thank you, bro, for being my BIG brother. I always was your little shadow when I was a kid. Always riding around on the seat on the back of the bike when we were kids, it was funny because sometimes you put me in a duffle bag with my head sticking out because how little I was after all you were my big brother. As we grew up to be men, we had our differences and different views and our fights but no matter what I still loved you because you were my BIG brother. I will always miss you fool and hold on to all our memories and all our laughs. Even though Your no longer with us this is not goodbye its till I see you later. I look forward to the day I can greet you, dad, and our tata when all are resurrected in a paradise on earth. From the love of his life whom he would introduce as Christina Lopez My beloved Ruben M Lopez Jr. Never did we ever think you would have to leave so soon. We miss the warmth of your laughter and voice. Your presence alone would fill the room. Everyday we would reminisce about the memories we were able to share with you. There is nothing in the world I would not do just to hear your voice again to hear your jokes and laugh, your humor is greatly missed. My love was not ready or prepared to leave this earth. Only God knows why this had to happen and puts us at ease sometimes we can not make sense of it, yet we can rest assure Gods words brings us comfort Psalms 34:4-5 “I sought the lord and he answered me and delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant, and their faces shall never be ashamed.’ The heaviness we feel in our hearts can only be lifted only through our lord and savior. Rubens’s passion to do so many things in life has kept me inspired to continue to travel with my children. We all have shared countless memories traveling, it was our favorite thing to do together. How I wish we could relive all those moments, yet I know those moments in time will always be cherished within my heart forever I hold much gratefulness’ for all you were and are to all who knew you as well. Just as I love you with my whole heart, I know they do also. I love you Ruben, beloved husband, father, son, brother, nephew, cousin. Friend, each of our lives have been changed forever. you will be cherished in our hearts, gone to soon see you at the crossroads my love.
