Beloved son, brother, grandson, & uncle, 'kind and giving,' 18 William John Lopez, age 18 of Staten Island, N.Y. was born July 15, 2003 . In his short time on this earth, William had a busy life. As a young boy he enjoyed the outdoors and was skilled in hunting, archery, fishing. William played hockey and was a member of the Boy Scouts of America. He was trained in Vada Kempo and Judo and held a green belt with NYC Judo. William rode dirt bikes at a young age and at the age of 14 he learned how to drive his first Harley Davidson. He was extremely talented and played the guitar and bass. William continually developed his artistic abilities all throughout his life and was a tattoo artist with the family-owned business. William traveled to London which heightened his interest in the Punk scene. He found a life in the hard-core music scene and enjoyed a bit of celebrity status on the Lower East Side as the heart of the mosh pit. He befriended and was accepted by those with addiction issues and was known to have saved at least 3 lives with Narcan. He was a leader and wise beyond his years in many aspects. He was a kind and giving soul and always caring for others. He lived his life by the motto "I WILL NOT BOW." William brought so much love, frustration, and joy to our lives and to those who were around him. He is survived by his parents Ronald and Jeanette Lopez; his loving siblings, David (Cheryl)(niece Madalena), Christian, Adam, and Jenna (Christopher), fiance Sarah Fulton, his maternal grandparents Rebecca Fish and John E. Hafele. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, October 9, 2021, at 12:00pm, in Tompkins Square Park, NY, NY by the big tree.

William we are absolutely devastated. You are and always will be an important part of our family and we will keep your memory alive forever. We all always had such good times together. Still laugh thinking of the time you put out that big grease fire in my kitchen when I was cooking for all of you guys. We were all freaking out and you took control. Me, Emily, Molly and Leviathan love you and miss you more than words could ever express.
