Ruben Lopez, Jr., 56, passed away on Saturday, September 11th, 2021.  He was born April 18, 1965 in New York.  Ruben grew up in Puerto Rico and settled in Florida where he raised his family.  He was a generous man and gave a helping hand to anyone in need.  If you knew him well, you would know that Ruben kept a completely stocked tool shed with all the latest tools and gadgets.  He was the man to go to when you needed help or a tool!

We will fondly remember the things he loved, such as collecting coins and building model cars.  We will also remember his sarcastic sense of humor, as he quietly cracked a joke and left you in stitches.

Ruben is survived by his parents Ruben Sr. and Lucy; his sister Judith; his wife Jennifer, his children Ruben, Matthew, Samantha, Gissele and John; and his grandchildren Nicholas, Luna, Lucas, Jaxson, Elijah and Alianiz.  He was preceded in death by his son, Christopher Lopez.

May he forever rest in peace knowing how truly loved he was.

The visitation will be held on Monday, September 20, 2021 at 1:00 PM at Roca de Salvación Church – 290 Marion Oaks Blvd, Ocala, FL 34473; the funeral service will follow.  In lieu of flowers donations can be made directly to the family through gofundme.
