Although I never had the opportunity or the pleasure to meet my cousin, I did get to speak with him on the phone. He shared a lot of memories of my own father with me. My daughter and I had the pleasure of meeting one of his daughters (my niece Yessenia. Lopez's don't do 2nd cousins etc...:-) ). We are hoping to get to meet the rest of the family in California soon. For the rest of the family we leave this thought: The 'Boriqua' tribe consisted of strong fierce warriors. The Lopez name being dominant, houses the strongest, bravest, fiercest, of this race. I am, we are, proud to bear this name. I am glad that my cousin Hugo is out of pain and at peace with our heavenly father but always keep in mind that when God adds a Lopez to his family (especially one as strong as Hugo) Satan has that much more to fear in the end. Yes, Hugo is gone but as a Lopez, I know that he will always watch over us and protect us. And when it is time for us to go and catch up with him, it will not be because he was not watching over us but that it was our time to be recruited into God's army with him. Until that day comes primo, we will miss and remember you always with love.

Hugo was my softball coach in highschool, and for my travel team at various parks in Gardena. Our love for baseball brought us together, then I later found out he was my best friend's dad (Lorenzo)... lol go figure... We would always joke about softball, and how I was his problem child that never listened to any of his instructions... he was right, I was hardheaded... lol... but we still enjoyed the game... we always reminisced about his coaching and umpiring at almost every park in California and how he was constantly fighting with the parents in the stands... Hugo had an angel watching over him for a long time and I am happy I was able to share some of those moments. Love you Coach! Rest Easy.

My best childhood memories were spent at the Lopez house. I remember my Uncle Hugo and my Tia Yolanda picking me up on the weekends so that I can spend time with my cousins. They had all kinds of board games and a swimming pool.
But my most cherished memory is what he did for my family. You see, my Uncle Hugo took a big risk and got my father a job, aware of his immigration status. Because of that risk, my parents were able to work hard and obtain the "American dream" of becoming homeowners. There are not enough words to thank him for how he has changed my family's lives. My parents taught my brother and I to always love him and respect him, and to never forget what others do for you. I am happy that I was able to share this memory with him. His eyes teared up and he said, "No need to thank me, I love you guys baby."
Tio, you will be greatly missed!

My father was an amazing man in my eyes he had unconditional love for me he seen no flaws or bad in me, was always there for me when I called and needed my dad. he always fought for me through everything life through his way. He had a desire to make an impact in my life and that he has accomplished I will always remember the good and positive about my father he was kind loving and caring and loved to enjoy life for what it was. I’m so happy and blessed to call him my father and to have had the time we spent together I will for ever hold you close to my heart DAD I love you❤️

My Favorite Uncle says it all. I watched him embarrass his brother game after game when they played pool. Last count I remember was 23 wins out of 26 matchs at 9ball against his brother Ed.
He was an outstanding softball player where he excelled best at the Pitcher position , leader and manager of his teams. His teams he put together were all serious business. Hit n Hustle, play every game like a championship... He had the right attitude for competition...Go Big or Go Home!
If you were around any South Central L.A. parks and recreation where they play Baseball.... Everyone knew "HUGO" Player Coach Manager Umpire. Always Suited and Razor Sharp. Hugo was Loved and Respected and he will be Missed...
