Arturo Eduardo Lopez, 96, of Phoenix, went home to be with Jesus on January 11, 2021.
Art loved his family and friends and was a man of much faith. He is survived by his wife of 44 years, Sharon, with whom he shared a beautiful life and an inspirational love. From Ensenada to San Diego to the Inland Empire and then to Phoenix – wherever he was home he had a garden and projects that kept him busy. Through his many careers and jobs he made numerous friends and was a shining light for many.
Art was a loving father to his 5 daughters, and an adoring Papa to his 11 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. Preceded in death by his parents and sister Mary Louise (Manuel). Native Arizonan. Proud UA Alumni. US Navy WWII Veteran. He will be forever remembered as a gentleman, as a friend, and as a man who loved and gave of himself freely. His faith in Jesus was his rock.
Prayers & God’s Blessings for all of the family. Enjoyed visits with Art which were centered around Faith, Family, & Football.
A good man & will be greatly missed!
Love In Christ, Chris Adams

Sending you all much love and prayers for God’s comfort and healing grace. Art was a good and gentle soul.
May God’s grace and comfort be upon all of you!
When I met Art for the first time, it was a moment that I would not forget. His manners and his demeanor made me feel very welcome and comfortable like I was visiting with a family member.
May his soul be embraced by our Mighty Lord

Much love to you, Sharon, Lisa, and all of the other family members. We have such fond memories of Art especially his insatiable yearning to know Jesus and His grace and all that Jesus died to provide for us as believers. His 96 years were well-lived and we are grateful to have been a small part. We will continue to pray as you journey through the grief of losing him and yet rejoicing in the reunion to come one day!
We have been trying and trying to get on zoom to be part of the service to no avail. Another friend told me she was having trouble too. If the service was archived and you could send us a way to view it, that would be awesome.
Such a pleasure and honor to meet Art in this lifetime, I will always hold you all in my heart and prayers. His presence will live on.
My dear friend Lisa, i send you my deepest sympathy at this time. Your father was a fine gentleman and a loving father. No matter how old our parents become, we are never ready to say good-bye. I send you this virtual hug until the time it is safe I also thank you for your continued friendship.
Also, my sympathy to Sharon.
It was a pleasure and honor to meet Art in this lifetime. Sending my love and care to you all. His presence will continue on.
