Zenon Lopez peacefully passed away on October, 22, 2021, surrounded by his loving family. Zenon was the youngest of the family, born April 9, 1943 in Gonzales Ranch, NM to Martin Lopez and Rosalia Sena Lopez. He was later adopted by his brother Trinidad Lopez and his sister-in-law Joesphine after the passing of his parents at a young age. Zenon viewed Josephine as his mother, and all 12 of her children his siblings. He enjoyed his childhood and loved helping care for his younger siblings. In 1961, Zenon bravely joined the US Army and traveled the world, eventually stationing in Germany. Upon returning from the military, he reconnected with the love of his life Pina and went on to get married on March 1, 1965. Soon after starting their family with the birth of their first daughter, they relocated to Muleshoe, TX, where they had their second daughter and twin boys. Zenon developed many skills and talents that he applied to his work as a welder, a builder, maintenance technician, and many other occupations. He was not only a jack of all trades but a master of them all, passing on his expertise to his children and grandchildren. Zenon ultimately moved his family to Canyon, TX in 1993. Always a loving husband and caring father, Zenon spent his time doing what he loved most, helping his family with whatever they needed. He knew no strangers, befriending anyone he encountered. His final wish was to return home to be amongst his wife and family, before leaving this earth to be with God. He was preceded in death by his birth parents, his siblings Rudolfo Lopez, Trinidad Lopez, Manual Lopez, Joe Lopez, Piedad Blea, Julia Aragon, Trinidad Jr. Lopez. He is survived by his wife Pina Lopez, his adopted mother Josephione Lopez, his children Cathy Hughes and husband Doug Hughes, Rosie Vela and husband David Vela, Aaron Lopez and Darron Lopez, as well as Joey Hurtado and Monica Madrid, whom he also considered his children.
