Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

On Tuesday, May 4, 2021, Jacob Lopez went home to be with his daddy and the Lord at the age of 31. Jacob was born on October 8, 1989 to Margarito and Helen Lopez (Landry) in Roswell, NM. He grew up and attended school in Roswell where he graduated from Goddard High School in 2008. Jacob had a passion for basketball at a very young age, in which he persued all through school and many Gus Macker tournaments. His dream was to one day play in the NBA.

He also enjoyed fishing, having bbqs, being with his family and friends, camping, and attending church. He was a godly man that was not afraid to pray for anyone in need. He spread light, love, smiles, and hugs to anyone that came into his life. He never met a stranger, if you were a friend or mentor you were one for life.

Jacob is known for his quick wit, his infectious smile, his love for his sons, and his kind and compassionate spirit. The love he had for the 49ers was for life. He also enjoyed watching the Lakers and Yankees.

He was welcomed to heaven by his father, Margarito Lopez, his cousin Joshua Landry, his grandfather, Julian Lopez, his nephew Ysiah Ray, his “Granny”, Ruby Mabry, and his three aunts, Pat York, Helen Dennis, and Barbara Chenoweth.

He left behind his two sons, the center of his world, Darius and Bryson Lopez of Hobbs, NM, his mother, Helen Landry (Benny) of Ft. Worth, his “Meemaw” Evelyn Landry of Roswell, his brother Gabriel (Ashley) Lopez of Ft. Worth, his brother, Marcos Lopez of Ft.  Worth, his sister Azharae Sanchez Lopez of Aurora, Co., his nieces Harmony Lopez and Jenessa Cannon Lopez of Roswell, Sophia and Piper Lopez of Ft. Worth, and his nephew Brodie Lopez of Ft. Worth and Victor Ray of Aurora, Co. He leaves behind numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, and lifelong friends who will miss him. He is also survived by the love of his life the last six years, Cheyenne Keller and her children Zoey and Anthony of Ft. Worth, and his godparents Jaime and Christina Fierro of Roswell.
