Lopez was from the town of Guayanilla. His mother was a nurse. The mayor of the town, Edgardo Arlequin Velez taught Lopez for six years while he directed the school band.
He he was a peaceful young man and especially talented.
The mayor said Lopez’s parents were always taking care of him, and that he had a tight-knit family and friendships.
