Gerald Lopez

Gerald “Jerry Don” Lopez, 67, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family in his daughter’s home during the early morning hours on May 11, 2024 in Las Vegas, NV after a long hard fought 2 year battle with Cancer.
Son of Emma Bell and Orlando Lopez, he was born on February 21, 1957 in Borger, Tx. He was a talented Master Carpenter, a trade passed down by his beloved father. His most recent career journey took him to Wynn Las Vegas, were he served as an engineer and made many wonderful friends.
He was preceded to heaven by his mother and father, and his beloved brothers Butch, Tony, Orlando D., Mark, and Patrick Lopez, and sister Lola Noe. He is survived by his loving wife Donna Kay Lopez of Las Vegas, NV who he grew up with from childhood and loved deeply. Sons: Tory Lopez of Borger, Tx and Dustin Lopez of Las Vegas, NV, Daughters: Lorrie Curless of Las Vegas, NV and Summer Treadway of Las Vegas, NV. Four Grandchildren: Tyler Allen, Carter Allen, Jacob Treadway, and Brayden. Brothers: Joe Lopez of Mendocino, CA, Randy Lopez of Borger, TX, Jimmy Bryson of Santa Rosa, NM and Sisters: Rose of Mount Pleasant, TN, Christine Hooks of Fritch, TX as well as many many cousins, nieces, and nephews.
Jerry Don had a passion for boating, fishing, hunting, and the great outdoors. You could find him at the lake on his boat fishing or in the mountains exploring with his kids and grandkids. Being a father and grandpa came naturally to him. He was adored and cherished as the loving patriarch of his family. His grandkids often reminisce about him pointing out the moon on their nightly walks by saying “and there’s the moon” in his own special tone as he carried them around on his hip or back exploring all of the outdoors.
Jerry Don embodied the best of qualities: unconditional love, strength of spirit, and an unending generosity that could be seen in his care for his wife Donna, children, grandchildren, friends, and family. He was always willing to lend a helping hand.
His friends and family are invited to share happy memories and celebrate Jerry’s life in the way he would want to be remembered -as a loving and caring man who enjoyed life.
