Forest Lawn - Coachella Obituary

Hunter Lopez was killed in action on August 26, 2021 while a member of the Unites States Marine Corps in support of Operation Freedom's Sentinel.

Born on January 15, 1999 in Palm Springs, CA., Hunter is survived by his parents, Herman and Alicia, brother Owen and sister Trinity.

Hunter dedicated his life to service and took pride in being part of organizations with a rich tradition. Prior to joining the marine corps, Hunter was a Riverside County Sheriff's Department Explorer Scout from 2014-2017 for Post 507 where he obtained the rank of captain.

Hunter served in the marine corps for four years, his first three years as part of the Fleet Antiterrorism Security Team Company A, 5th Platoon and most recently as a member of 2nd Battalion 1st Marine Division, Golf Company, 1st Platoon, 3rd squad.

Hunter was devoted to serving others and perfecting himself in order to be the best explorer and marine possible. Whether at work or at home, Hunter strived for perfection, seeking knowledge and experience from those he respected and admired. When on leave, Hunter enjoyed being around family and friends and sharing his experiences with everyone. He lived life to the fullest and was often the reason why family and friends would bend over backwards to get together when he was around.

Hunter was a history buff and had many aspirations to pursue after completing his service to the country, among those was being part of a shooting and firearms company with several friends which is already underway and becoming a deputy with the Riverside County Sheriff's Department.

Always a fan of everything and anything Star Wars related, Hunter convinced countless friends, family and marines to binge watch movies and would often quiz them on Star Wars trivia. As a child, Hunter shied away from photographs and it was a challenge to get him to smile in most photographs. As an Explorer Scout and especially as a marine Hunter seemed to flourish and developed an infectious smile and amazing personality. Hunter lived a full life in a short amount of time, he impacted so many lives and has left a lasting impression on family, friends, and his brothers and sisters in arms.

May he rest in peace in the loving arms of his Savior.

Semper Fidelis
