Obituary For

Sergio Lopez

02/06/1990 - 06/26/2014

Sergio Alexander Lopez, 24 yrs. old, was born February 6, 1990 in Chicago, Illinois.  He passed away peacefully at McAllen Heart Hospital in McAllen, Texas on June 26, 2014. His loving and doting mother Belinda Vaca was right by his side as she always was throughout his life.  He was preceded in death by his beloved maternal grandmother Aurora Villarreal Barajas whom he dearly loved.  He was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather Arturo Vaca.  He was also preceded in death by his loving, artistic uncle Tom Heredia.  He was also preceded in death by his paternal grandparents. Sergio was a Christian and is now in Heaven with his Lord and Savior. 

      Left to cherish his memory is his loving mother Belinda Vaca, his step-father Angel Hernandez, his father Sergio Lopez, three sisters Miriam Lopez, Venezia Lopez, and Valeria Lopez and various aunts and uncles and cousins.  

      Sergio was a gifted musician who inspired many young people with his music.  He was an actor appearing in plays such as Cat On a Hot Tin Roof and The Rocky Horror Picture Show.  At the time of his death, he was a music instructor to children in piano and guitar.  He was passionate and creative in making his own music tracks while using his own words.  He played various instruments oftentimes self-taught such as the guitar, keyboards, piano, Cello. He learned to play the bagpipes which he played at a friend’s wedding and played throughout Harlingen North High School.  There’s a saying that goes:  You don’t know what you have lost until it’s gone. This is exemplified by reading everyone’s tributes to this beautiful young man on Facebook and Twitter, aka Sergio Leone.    He was known throughout the Valley as an extremely talented musician and was recognized for his mechanical engineering studies at the University of Texas at Brownsville.  He had two bands Vatican Beach and Christ Hair which he was so proud of and played all throughout the Valley.  Sergio, we will always love you, and cherish our times and memories together.  Most of all we are thankful for the gift of having you in our lives that God gave us for such a short time.  




Out of this life I shall never take

Things of silver and gold I make.

All that I cherish and hoard away

After I leave, on earth must stay.


Though I have toiled for a painting rare

To hang on my wall, I must leave it there.

Though I call it mine and boast its worth,

I must give it up when I quit the earth.


All that I gather and all that I keep

I must leave behind when I fall asleep.

And I wonder often, just what

I shall own

In that other life, when I pass alone.


What shall He find and what shall He see

In the soul that answers the call for me?

Shall he find and what He finds and what

Shall he see


In the soul that answers the call for me?

Shall the great Judge learn,

When my task is through,

That my soul had gathered some riches, too?


Or shall at the last, it be mine to find,

That all I had worked for I’d left behind?



      Visitation will be held at Buck Ashcraft Funeral Home in Harlingen, Texas from 1:00 pm to 6:00 Sunday June 29, 2014 to celebrate his full 24 years of life.

      A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday July 5, 2014 at 11:00 am in the Walker Brown Funeral Home Chapel in Bartlesville, Oklahoma where he will be buried right next to his beloved grandmother Aurora Villarreal Barajas and step-grandfather Augustin Barajas.  Interment will follow at Memorial Park Cemetery with Pastor Dr. Don Coleman of Highland Park Baptist Church officiating.
