Antonio always had a positive out-look on life and always had the bible in hand. He was fearless and fought any new challenges presented to him in life.Once he got involved in church in his mature age he was devoted. He spent most of his evening readingand learning about the bible. You could always catch him Saturday mornings in church praising the Lord.
Antonio was loved by many and taken by granted by some. His members or brothers how they address themselves at church would always swing by his home to make sure he was a part of Saturday church service. Antonio would travel with the church to different states to meet and get to know new members. Let’s say that he would always make people laugh and at the same time question why they haven’t meet before.
Antonio would make conversations with anyone even if language was a barrier. Antonio had a famous line to strike up a conversation “what’s a matta with you? Yes, just how it sounds. This was his famous line and if you personally knew Antonio, you’ll forever carry that line with you. Antonio had a unique way to approach new people and was definitely worth keeping around your life.
When Antonio would go to his doctor’s appointments and you could always hear the medical staff giggling because of Antonio’s contagious sense of humor and comical facial expressions.
Antonio was called home September 8th, 2021. The good lord saw that Antonio’s purpose in life was served. Antonio’s Guardian angels must have been distracted as Antonio left too soon. There is nothing that will ever fill the void that was left in our heart. However, you will always have a place in all of our thoughts, prayers, memories, and conversations. We will try not to grieve over you as we know you are free. You took the lords hand gracefully when he called you home. There was a lot more memories to create with you, but the lord wanted to create them with you now. Until we meet again Don Toño, fly high. LopezLopez.
