Also survived by his beautiful twin daughters, Melissa Aguirre of San Antonio & Teresa Moreno (Lupe) of Ingleside. Sons, Adrian Lopez, Adam Lopez, Andrew Lopez, and Anthony Lopez all of Austin.
Also survived by numerous grandchildren and nieces and nephews. Frankie loved his grandkids very, very much. They were indeed some of his greatest accomplishments.
He loved kids in general, probably because he was a big kid himself. He loved to joke around and had a laugh that was contagious! He loved the Dallas Cowboys and Texas Longhorns and enjoyed watching the games on his recliner at home every football season. He would call his brother-in-law, almost every Sunday to ask, “Brother-in-law, what time do the Cowboys play?” He also loved playing a good game of pool. Frankie was very close with his mom. He would make her a cup of coffee every morning and would make sure she ate and had enough to eat every day to show how much he loved her. She will miss her baby for sure. He was the kind of guy who, if you needed it, would give you the shirt off his back. If he couldn’t do that for you, he would go and find one for you! Always willing to offer a helping hand.
