LOPEZ, John Edwin – 84, of Cape May, NJ and formerly of Binghamton and Apalachin, NY passed away peacefully on Wednesday morning, January 13, 2016. A man of honor, John was a United States Navy Veteran of the Korean War. He took great pride in being a Veteran. He graduated from Binghamton Central High School in 1950. He retired in 1994 from IBM in Owego, NY as an Engineer in Standards and Product Safety where he enjoyed a long and successful 25 years of dedicated service to the company. His enthusiasm and innovation over the years contributed greatly to the success of the company. He delighted in telling everyone that he worked for the Itty Bitty Machine Company! He was a kind gentle man who never spoke unkindly about anyone. He had a passionate love of animals of all species. He recently sold his home in Apalachin, NY and was looking forward to getting away from the cold and snowy winters. He enjoyed sitting on the beach all day and so looked forward to the beautiful Cape May sunsets and attending the Flag Lowering Ceremony held each evening by the Cape May Kiwanis Club! When fall arrived, he took great joy in looking forward to camping in the beautiful Pocono Mountains, which was his favorite time of the year, and sitting by the campfire with all his campfire friends which became a source of joy for him. He is predeceased by his wife Janice (2005). John is dearly missed by his family which includes his companion, Roseann Ippoliti; two sons, Eric Lopez and Richard (Barbara) Lopez; brother, Bernard (Christine) Lopez; five grandchildren; four greatgrandchildren and his loving pets, Maddie and Champ. Funeral services are being held privately. A “Celebration of Life” and a full Veteran’s Memorial will be held this coming Spring with advance notice to all his family and friends who might wish to attend. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions are suggested to Animal Outreach, 600 Park Blvd., West Cape May, NJ 08204. Info and condolences: spilkerfuneralhome.com - Although this website offers many options to send flowers to the family, PLEASE observe their request to send a contribution to Animal Outreach in stead (address above).
