The memorial organizer requested donations in honor of Joseph Lopez


Memorial Fund (Scholarship, Dedication, etc.).

Go to this link to the GoGundMe Page. Do not hit the Donate button here. We will be creating a Joseph Lopez Memorial Fund that will be used to organize and host a Joseph Lopez Memorial Tennis Tournament in South Florida. His greatest passion was tennis and there is nothing that would make him happier than to see a great weekend of heavy, hard fought competition between his SFL tennis pals and other tennis enthusiasts. This will also be somehow tied in with a donation to a South Florida dog rescue. Since this is all still difficult for me to bear (Travis), I do not have this fully planned out but that is the intention for these donations. Once I have the foundation created, I will update this page with the actual foundation information and then later with links to the tournament info once I have a site URL and enough details established. Those that know that he lived and breathed tennis know that this is the most fitting tribute that can be put together for him and also know that he will love the spotlight. :)

    My love for him is eternal. The pain of his absence is great and I miss him all the time. Joe added so greatly to my life and internal happiness in a way I am not sure if he fully understood.

    Joe and I have been friends for over 30 years. We had good times in NYC, Florida, New Mexico, Berlin and most recently in Morocco where we celebrated his 50th birthday. We shared laughter and tears, affection and love. We were looking forward to staying...  more
