James C. Lopez, a lifelong resident of Albuquerque, NM, died unexpectedly on January 18, 2022 at the age of 55.
James is survived by: his mother Agnes Aragon; his sister Donna Barnhill; his brother Carlos Lopez; his children: Abel Aragon, Jaqueline Aragon, Michael Lopez, Christopher Lopez, Joshua Lopez, Jonathan Lopez, Matthew Lopez, Gena Lopez, Pauline Lopez, and Dominic Lopez; his girlfriend Kathryn Mayo; and numerous other family members. He was predeceased by his: father John Aragon; stepfather Anthony Lopez; and Grandmother Mary Serrano.
James was born May 16, 1966 in Albuquerque, NM. He graduated from Cibola High School, where he participated in the ROTC program and performed at many events. He was always spending time with his cousins, riding motorcycles, and camping. He and his cousins loved to test the limits and would end up in trouble at times driving their parents a little crazy. He lived life to the fullest and traveled to many places with his parents. His ambition, and strong work ethic led him to become owner of Albuquerque Apartment Movers, which has become very successful over the years. However, he is known more for his caring, and helping others in need. He would help others regardless of what time it was or what he was doing. He was a great mentor for people suffering from alcohol addiction and celebrated 12 years of sobriety. He never talked about helping anyone and never took credit for his good deeds. He always had a smile on his face and was always happy and joking with everyone.
James loved spending time with his family and friends. He had a passion for eating good food, riding his Harley Davidson motorcycle, listening to vinyl records, and traveling. He will be remembered for his kindness and generosity with a passion for life.
