Felix Armando Lopez

Felix Armando Lopez of Park Ridge, New Jersey, born June 5, 1934, in Formosa, Argentina to Pablo and Luisa Lopez, passed away peacefully with family by his side on Friday, December 1, 2023.  Despite his many ailments, he never complained and took each one with grace and dignity and fought until the very end.

Husband of Mirtha Lopez (nee Paron) for 61 years. Cherished father of Ali Betts and her husband John. Proud Grandfather of Ashley Larkin and her husband Brian, Alex Rodriguez predeceased by her husband Pete Moulin-Malish, Danielle Betts and Johnny Betts. Adored Nonno of William and Maude Larkin.

Felix moved his family to Miami, Florida, in 1968 and worked as an auto body repairman until the young age of 83, when he retired. He had a love for sports, basketball being his favorite. He was the best at Argentinian parrilladas and always took over the grill at family functions while sipping his Chianti. To all who met him he was an adorned friend. He spent every moment of his life working and fighting hard, and always had the best stories, highlighting his most proud moments throughout his lifetime in Argentina, Florida, and New Jersey.

In celebration of his life, family and friends will be having an intimate gathering, with those closest to them, to share stories of all the amazing accomplishments, honoring his life. Felix’s family asks that in lieu of flowers, please send a donation to your favorite preferred organization or foundation in Felix Armando Lopez’s name.



  1. I will always remember dear, sweet Felix as the consummate gentleman. My sincere condolences to Mirta, Ali and family.
