Joshua M. Lopez
Joshua Michael Lopez passed away unexpectedly on September 23, 2012. He was born on March 6, 1990 to Michael and Tosha Lopez in Galveston, TX.
Joshua is preceded in death by his grandmothers, Shirley Williams and Patsy Pillsbury and grandfathers, Jules Williams and Gilbert Lopez.
Joshua is survived by his fiancé Melissa Archuleta, of Galveston, TX; parents, Michael and Tosha Lopez; brothers, Matthew and Michael Lopez Jr.; sisters, Jessica Lopez, Caitlin Lopez and Theresa Gillane; grandmother, Mary Lopez of Galveston TX; aunts and uncles, Tina and Robert Salinas of La Marque, TX, Tammy Cervantes of Arizona, Ray Williams and Maria Rodriguez of Galveston, TX; and cousins, Maree Bullers of Seabrook, TX and Kristina Salinas of Lumberton, TX.
Joshua was a member of Calvary Chapel Houston in Friendswood, TX. He liked to play the guitar and hit up some Halo with his best bud and brother Matthew. He loved to buy his sister, Caitlin, anything to eat. Teasing was a favorite with his sister, Jessica. He always liked tickling his littlest brother Mhyqi, and proving how strong he was by bench pressing him, like he was nothing. Joshua was a very strong young man and always wanted to test his dad and wrestle with him. He loved getting into the bed and talking to his mom about anything - he would always call her Momma Bear, which she loved, and in turn she would call him Baby Bear.
Joshua, when he was home, always loved buying food, especially ice cream for all his siblings. He spoiled them in a good way. He was so smart and intelligent, but he had no sense of direction, so when you rode with him, there was no telling where you might end up going. The ride itself was always unforgettable with his loud screaming music and sometimes a little Scatman or Skrillix thrown in, followed by his non-rhythmic dance moves.
Pallbearers, Bugler, and Rifle Squad are being provided by the US Navy.
