Dagoberto Lopez Obituary


Dagoberto Lopez 33, died Thursday, October 26, 2023 in Sampson County. 

Arrangements are incomplete and will be announced by Hope Valley Hawkins.

As a son, Dagoberto was a respectful, affectionate, loving, and humble child. He was a wonderful son. He loved my cooking, his favorite being carne de res with chile, tomate and cevolla, he also loved chicken with chile, tomate and cevolla with  Pato sauce mixed in. Dagoberto happily ate the food I cooked. He was never picky. He grew into a wonderful young man that didn’t get drunk and he never smoked. It was a joy to be his mother, he was a wonderful son, father, and husband for his family. Dagoberto will forever be missed and will always be in my mind and heart for the rest of my life. What has happened, pains me terribly, but God chose to call him back to his side and I accept that and may God have him in his eternal grace. - Antonia Salazar Lopez (Mother)


As many of you may or may not have known, Dagoberto is my oldest brother. Not only is he my brother but he is also my mentor, my supporter, and my partner in crime. I always looked up to him, it required a lot of patience being a husband, father, son, nephew, and most of all being a brother to the most annoying siblings. And that is something to admire because he managed it so well.  Although he was a serious brother he was also kind, compassionate and a very silly person.  Every time we all gathered at my moms house, he never missed the opportunity to find a way to sneak up on me if not forcefully attempt to kiss me on the cheek knowing how much I hated it. Even though he didn’t verbally say it, this was his way of trying to teach me how to be a more loving person. Not only that, some how and for no other reason we would end up wrestling, but we all know he was actually just beating me up, regardless, this was his way of teaching me another life lesson. Not only does he hold a special part in my heart but he also holds a special part in my children’s heart, as well. Naomi loves the way he spoiled her and treated her like a princess. Erick really appreciates the fact that his uncle was able to teach him in a loving and engaging manner. At the end of the day he would always lift us up and give us a massive bear hug. And I think, that is one of  the many little things we are going to miss the most. It's such a tragedy that he left too early. I know his leaving left a huge dent in all of our hearts. He will always be missed and I will always keep him in my thoughts and prayers. - Esmerald Lopez (Sister)


As a husband, Dagoberto was everything and then some. I first met Dagoberto in High School, he was starting in the 9th grade and I was starting 10th grade. The first thing I noticed were his baggy shorts, tall socks, and converse. Being from the woods, he was quite the sight for me to see. Tall, dark and handsome. After being introduced to him through a mutual friend, we clicked immediately, from then on he knew he would make me his wife and mother to his future children, even before I knew it. We had our ups and downs as most young couples do, especially those in high school. But being the patient, determined and charming man he is, on September 2009, he made that dream a reality, we made a commitment to join our lives together and from that moment on we laughed and cried as husband and wife. In these 14 years of marriage we spent our days mainly laughing as a family, accomplishing one dream after another. Becoming a caring loving father to our two sons, Andres and David. Becoming a home owner, which we turned into a warm loving home. And spreading as much love and joy as he could. He may not like to admit to that fact, but that is what he did. He touched several peoples lives and we can all attest to how we each spent that time with him smiling and in happiness. - Ana Karen Lopez (Spouse)
