Jose Ramon Lopez

October 3, 1931 — July 12, 2022

Clinton

 

José (Joe) Ramon Lopez, 90, of Clinton, Maryland passed away

peacefully on July 12, 2022. A proud 30-year United States Air Force

veteran, Joe valiantly served his country during the Korean and Vietnam

Wars. To end his military career, Joe, as a Chief Master Sergeant, was

assigned to Air Force One as a Security Police Superintendent from

1970 till 1980, serving Presidents Nixon, Ford and Carter. Joe was

always grateful for the opportunities the military provided him and the

places and people he met along the way. Upon retiring from the USAF,

Joe continued to serve his country in a civilian position in the Command

Security office at the Defense Logistics Agency from October 1980 until

January 2001.

 

Joe was preceded in death by his parents Pauline (Medina) and Joseph

Lopez; late wife Jean (McArthur) and his brothers Michael and Richard.

 

Joe is survived by his brother Stephen; his sisters Christina and Rosie;

his loving wife of 20 years Donna; his three sons Christopher, Wayne

(Karla) and Paul (Susan); his daughters Deborah, Dawn and Denise

(Steven); his nine grandchildren Christopher, Victoria, Steven

(Christina), Kevin (Tiffini), Justin (Stacy), Kristina (Chris), David, Joshua

(Vanessa), Corrie, Andrew, Hunter and Zachary; numerous nieces,

nephews and great-grandchildren.

 

Miraculously, Joe was able to remain with his family and friends for 19

additional years due to the generosity of his kidney donor, Donna

Truesdell, and the wonderful doctors and staff and Johns Hopkins

University and Medicine.
