All you wanted was to come home, but the good Lord decided to take you to HIS home instead.
Jesus Geraldo Lopez, age 39, passed away unexpectedly on November 14, 2021 at Kindred Hospital in El Paso, Texas. Jesus was born on November 20, 1981 to Ernesto and Mary Lou Lopez of Tularosa, NM. He was raised in Tularosa where he attended and graduated from Tularosa High School. Jesus had a love for music, family and friends. He worked as a caregiver for many years, including the care of his brother-in-law. We will always remember Jesus for the unique nicknames he always gave, his joking around, his BIG laugh, kindness, great personality, and the strength he had to get through.
Jesus was a loving husband, father, son, brother, and uncle. He was a friend to many. Always sharing laughter with others, a big heart with lots of love to share with anyone and everyone. His contagious smile and laughter could brighten anyone's day. Despite his struggles, he always had a smile on his face and always had encouraging and caring words for anyone who needed a friend. Not only did Jesus provide an amazing friendship to others, he had many friends who loved, cared and constantly checked on him.
