Carlos Manuel Lopez, O.C.D.S., was born in Cayey, Puerto Rico, on January 1, 1947, to Candido and Emilia Ortiz Lopez and passed away on March 23, 2020 at his home in Mount Vernon, NY.

When Carlos was a toddler, the family moved to New York City, where he resided until 2014.
Carlos attended local Catholic grammar and high schools, and graduated from St. Francis College in Brooklyn in 1969. From his late teens until the end of his life, Carlos was a devoted member of the Carmelite order, first as a seminarian in Brighton, Massachusetts, and then as a member of the Order of the Carmelites Discalced Secular.
In addition to serving as Spiritual Director for many years for the Discalced Carmelite secular community in Manhattan, Carlos helped to found another community for the Order at St. Joseph’s Church in Bronxville, New York in 1999.

Most recently, Carlos resided at the Meadowview Assisted Living Facility in Mount Vernon, New York. Carlos was loved at the Meadowview, as he was throughout his life, for his kindness, compassion and deep devotion to God.
He will be greatly missed.

Carlos is survived by his brother, Joseph Lopez, many friends, and his Carmelite confreres who were blessed to have known him.
