David Ray Lopez Sr: August 10, 1947 – September 26, 2022
David Ray Lopez, Sr., 75, passed away September 26, 2022, in Cheyenne, Wyoming.
David was born August 10, 1947, at Natrona County Hospital in Casper, Wyoming, with his twin brother, Daniel Joe Lopez, to Phillip C. and Susan (Blas) Lopez.
David was one of four children, spending his entire life in Casper. He graduated from Natrona County High School in 1966 and following high school, he began working at W.C. Kind as a cement finisher working on many projects in Casper and traveling to many cities within the state. He worked there for many years and also worked in asbestos removal for AFIC until his retirement. He was an active member of the Elk’s Lodge #1353 and moved through the chairs to become Exalted Ruler in 1986.
In his younger years, David enjoyed playing pool at the Rialto Pool Hall. He was quite the fisherman any time of the year, even if it was damn cold. He was a highly successful hunter and often filled his deer tags. Two of his proudest moments were when he harvested his six-point bull elk and filled his bull moose tag. Besides enjoying the Wyoming outdoors, he had many other hobbies including gambling, coin collecting, cars and guns. He was always willing to lend a helping hand to his friends. He was rarely seen around town without one of his many chihuahuas in his pocket. He loved his dogs dearly; some say he took care of them better than himself.
David is survived by his children, David R. (Lisa) Lopez, Jr. and Lori L. Lopez; brother, Phillip Lopez; four grandchildren, Cameron Lopez, Dalton Lopez, Tyler Gentry and Bailey Gentry; four great-grandchildren; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
He was preceded in death by his parents; twin brother, Daniel J. Lopez; and sister, Marjorie McKinstray.
