Maclovio Lopez, Jr. 9/11/01

I have the honor of paying tribute to Maclovia Lopez Jr.  He was 41 years old on 9/11/01.  He lived in California and was been in Boston working on a construction pipeline as was his specialty.  He was a passenger on United Airlines Flight 175 traveling home to visit his family while out of town for work.  A quote from his wife: "People always saw hard, but really he was soft on the inside," she said. "I think that anybody who really knew him knows what they're going to miss. Anybody else, it wouldn't have mattered to him anyway."
Here are some messages and memories that have been left for him, his family talks to him often.  I'm so sorry you lost him....
Today would have been your Birthday. Enjoy it in Heaven. Love and miss you!
Dad, 8 years has come and gone but you are missed just the same. I stay away from these sites as much as possible but the truth is I love to read from others who miss you as much as I do. Sometimes I just get so angry when I think about all the time we have missed out on. I dream someday we will be able to have another one of our talks. Well to all those who share my broken heart Thank you for Never forgetting the Man behind the event!!!!! Dannette Lopez, Norwalk, California

I met Maclovio in the early 1990's while he was employed by Spiniello pipeline Company. Spiniello was contracted to do work for the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power. I worked alongside Mac and his crew. We became friends and would greet each other with a warm handshake.
Spiniello did various projects for LADWP and other companies so there would be periods when I did not see Mac working on pipeline projects.
Eventually the contract ended and Spiniello moved onto other projects out of California.
Some years after 9/11 I ran into another ex Spiniello employee who had worked with Mac. I had wondered thru the years what had become of Mac and his co workers.
When he informed me that Mac had been on the flight that day I was stunned. By no means were we best buddies but we were friends who had met on the job and we would talk about non work related topics.
I was saddened to learn of his passing.

So today I will remember you in my prayers Maclovio. May you Rest In Peace.
