I was very young when I met Pat. My dad Tim Hagerty would take me to visit. But even though I was young I can absolutely remember his kindness to me. I can actually remember a feeling of genuine niceness to me and not a fake nice like some people will give kids. I felt absolutely welcomed in his home. That has always stayed with me.

Patrick Lopez was our visionary eye to the 19th century in our SABR book on Early Houston Base Ball (2014). Thank You, Patrick. Thank you, forever.

Meeting Pat seemed like it was somehow pre-ordained for me. His artwork for our Early Houston Baseball book was phenomenal, and specifically he brought life to a long forgotten 19th century Houston baseball park. It was a gift to the historical record of the city that both of us loved very much. More than that was the opportunity to become friends with such a wonderful soul. My deepest condolences to the Lopez family. It is such a blessing to have known Patrick Lopez.

What an interesting person! Of course he had to be very special to help create one of my all-time favorite people. I know he was proud to have a son like you. All my love, Patrick Lopez.

I miss his humor, his artistry, his love and enthusiasm about his plants, but most, I miss his joy at being in the bosom of his family. Salud!

To privately view a Bergman, Fellini, or Kubrick film with Pat, and absorb his running commentary, was a feast of urbanely cool insight. One always left a conversation with him feeling charmed by his warm wit, and a better person for having shared his expansive informed takes on the passing parade illuminated by great artists.
