Pablo "Paul" Lopez Ramos, lovingly referred to as "Welo" to those who loved
and knew him best, earned his Angel Wings on Febuary 10, 2023, surrounded

He was born to Pablo Lopez, Sr. and Luz Ramos Lopez on June 18, 1943 in
Mayaguez, Puerto Rico. He met and married his beloved wife of 61 years,
Socorro "Cookie" Rivera Lopez in 1961. They started their family in

Paul join Southern Bell the same year and enrolled each of his children to

Dad retired from Bell South in 2002 and relocated to North Port, FL, where
he joined a golf league and spent his retirement years basking in the sun,
chasing the little ball.
Mom and dad moved back to South Florida in December 2018, where he
continue his enjoyment of golf, and following his Miami Marlins. He watched
