Anthony (Tony) Lopez Ayala, 84, passed away Thursday, July 2, 2020 at Kaiser Hospital in Modesto, California with his family close by his side.
   He was born and raised in Niles, California where he met the love of his life Gertie. He knew Gertie virtually his whole life.  Tony married Gertie in 1956 and they were married for 64 years.  He served this great country by serving in the Navy for four years.
   He is survived by his two daughters and his son, Chris and husband Jim, Joann and Mike and his wife Elizabeth. Tony has entered the kingdom of heaven where the love of his life was waiting for him, they can dance and enjoy each other once again surrounded by family and friends.
   Through determination, hard work, love for each other and their family, Tony and the love of his life Gertie was blessed and given the opportunity to enjoy the fruits of their hard work and efforts. He traveled with his love as well as with his family and friends to many places this world has to offer.  He was able to spend time with his six grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.   Family was most important to Tony, his action and his presences demonstrated this throughout his life and to the very end. He had a calm and compassionate spirit about him.  Most people that know him never seen him mad or upset.  He was always willing to help. The world has lost an extraordinary and amazing example of a husband, father, grandfather and friend.
   Anthony (Tony) Lopez Ayala, you will be dearly missed.  You have been a great inspiration, a role model. You have given to others with no expectation of repayment whatsoever. This is not goodbye, we will see you again, but one has to wait until they are called by our Lord Jesus Christ to heaven to see you once again.
   Revelation 21:4- "He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
