Armando “Manny” Lopez, 64, of Peru, passed away at 6:45 P.M., Sunday, January 24, 2021 at his residence. He was born in Cienfuegos, Cuba on October 27, 1956, the son of Rafael and Hilda C. Leyva Lopez, who preceded him in death. Manny was a 1976 Peru High School graduate and a member of St. Charles Catholic Church. He worked for his father’s company Apollo Vending and owned and operated Professional Auto Detailing in Peru for 20 years. He was an avid car and motorcycle enthusiast, enjoyed boating and drag racing. Manny didn’t know a stranger and thoroughly loved spending time with his family. Manny is survived by a daughter, April Durham and her husband Ian of Peru, a son Anthony Armando Lopez of Indianapolis, both of whom he would at a drop of a hat be there for. Also surviving are two grandchildren Carter Anthony Hopper and Maci Patrice Durham, that he loved and adored as they did their Papaw, his former wife, Gina (Wolfe) Lopez of Peru, a brother Ralph Lopez and his wife Elizabeth of Warsaw, a sister Hilda Lennon and her husband Rick of Peru. The Cuban heritage forms such a strong family bond, that the nieces and nephews that he leaves behind will miss him tremendously, beginning with Big Jake, who he held a special bond with, Taylor, Jordan, Lyndi, Joey, Frankie, Matt, Eddie and even Little GooGoo. Throughout the years, Manny has developed many special friendships, several of whom have preceded him in death.
