Mr. Hector Lopez, 68, of Platt Street, passed away Friday, Sept. 6, 2019 at Waterbury Hospital after a long battle with cancer and is now resting in the arms of the Lord. He was the widower of Sheila Lopez Rivera.

Hector was born March 17, 1951, in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico to Leonides Caban Lopez of Waterbury and the late Juan Lopez. The family relocated to Stamford, CT, in 1966 and then to Waterbury where he resided until his passing.

"Tor" as he was known, played softball for many years with the Old Latinos. Hector was an avid Yankees fan and also loved basketball, volleyball, bowling, horseshoes, billiards, and swimming. But, most importantly, he enjoyed praising God in song, along with his beloved Sheila and will be so truly missed by all his family and friends. We love you Hector, and won't say goodbye, but: "nos vemos en el cielo"

Hector is survived by children, Jorge Huertas, Maria Lebron, Dalila Lopez, Elvis Lopez, several grandchildren, great grandchildren, four brothers, four sisters, several nieces, nephews, cousins, in laws and a host of friends.
