In Loving Memory of William (Bill) Lopez

William (Bill) Lopez

December 18, 1972 – October 21, 2022


William (Bill) Lopez, 49, of Colorado Springs passed away on October 21st, 2022, at home. Born on December 18th, 1972, in Los Angeles, California, he was the son of Tom and Theresa Lopez.

Bill was full of passion and creativity—from cooking and painting to composing music.  He was known for being a gifted musician who played the guitar along with the piano and drums. He enjoyed entertaining family and friends and sharing his cuisine and banter.

Bill cherished his children, Khayman, and Sophia, and took great pleasure spending time with them. Growing up, he exposed them to eclectic ideas, music, and art, encouraging Khayman and Sophia to always keep an open mind. He also instilled the importance of making sure that they remain true to themselves and do whatever makes them happy.

Bill was kindhearted and charismatic. People were drawn to him, and he was always making new friends. He could easily make instant connections with anyone he came across.

Over the past two years, Bill was the primary caregiver of his mother-in-law and took great pride in being able to provide her comfort. He spent hours sitting with her listening to her stories while also sharing his. She adored Bill and would always look forward to what he would cook for her next. She also enjoyed his humor—he could always make her smile and laugh.

Bill is survived by his wife, Kim, his children Khayman and Sophia, his mother and father Tom and Theresa, and his sister Sarah.

He will be dearly missed by family and friends; however, in the words of Morrie Schwartz: “Death ends a life, not a relationship. All the love you created is still there. All the memories are still there. You live on in the heart of everyone you have touched and nurtured while you were here.”

Please join us in celebrating Bill’s life on 11/15, 11:00 a.m. with a mass at St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church, 355 So. Navajo, Denver, CO 80223.

A reception will follow the mass at Knights of Columbus, 4935 w. 1st Ave, Denver, CO, 80219 to honor Bill and share memories.
