The Lopes Family would like to extend our deepest condolences. We have missed seeing "Mr. Will" (as my daughter called him) in the neighborhood and in his yard these past few months. We knew something must be going on, and are saddened to hear of his passing. We only knew him since moving next door in 2017, but he made an impression quickly, one we will remember fondly. May he rest in peace.
