My husband, soulmate, father of our three children and Papa to ten grandkids, light of our lives was called home on Saturday August 22nd.
He is survived by his wife of 43 years Susan. His children Andrea & Michael Clausen, Randy & Dionne Lopina, Laura & Colvin Archuleta and Gary Lopina Jr. His ten grandkids Adam, Joseph, Jacob, Madison, Dylan, Elijah, Jasmine, Anthony, Jordan & Harper. Gary's brother Kenny and sisters Christi, Shelley, Sherrel & Marian.
Gary was born in Oregon, but grew up in Santa Clara. He and Susan raised their children in San Jose, but spent the last twenty years in Oroville.
Gary loved spending time with his family and friends. He enjoyed a good game of cribbage, camping, fishing, crabbing, boating and hunting with his friends and grandsons. He loved watching his grandkids play in every sport, but especially loved watching football. GO NINERS!
Gary touched SO many lives and hearts, he will be deeply missed by those that had the opportunity to know and be loved by him.
