Fermin was born January 1, 1956, in Boise City, OK to Joe E. and Mollie (Leal) Lopez. Fermin attended Stratford High School after high school began working for Stratford Feedyard until retirement. On April 24, 1992, he married the love of his life, Tina Maria (Ramos).  Fermin built himself a “Man Cave” where he could be found frequently blasting music or rooting on his favorite sports teams. He was an avid Dallas Cowboy and Kansas City Chiefs fan. However, his true passion was Friday Night Lights with his beloved Stratford Elks. Fermin took daily “cruises” around town to check the mail at the post office and see how the town was doing, but it was really to purchase his favorite candy, butterscotch discs. He was a great friend to all and a devoted family man who will be missed by all who knew and loved him.

In addition to his parents, Fermin is preceded in death by his three brothers: Joe Lopez Jr., Carlos Lopez and Mikel Lopez. He is also preceded by a nephew, Andrew Martinez.

Fermin is survived by his wife Tina of the home; children: Martha Ramos of Dumas, Christopher Lopez and wife Mona, RoAnn Tims and Adrian Lopez all of Stratford; sisters: Candy Gutierrez and husband Gilbert, Georgia Ramos and husband Joe, Loretta Martinez and husband Fred, all of Stratford and Maryann Pedraza of Amarillo. He is also survived by his grandchildren: Luis, Claudia, Andrea, Riley, Lilliana, Anthony, Isaiah, David, Dezerray, and Faith, great-grandchildren: Xenayah and Xadrian and many numerous nieces and nephews along with many other friends and family.

The family suggests with gratitude that in lieu of customary remembrances, memorials be made to the charity of your choice.
