Ranulfo Valdez Lopez passed away at age 71 on May 21, 2021 in the city of Modesto, CA. Ranulfo is remembered as a great husband, father, and grandfather. Everyone who has shared a memory with Ranulfo Valdez Lopez knew he was a caring man, especially those he loved most. He dedicated most of his life caring for his lovely wife, Rosa Burciaga Lopez, may she rest in peace. Ranulfo is remembered as being the greatest storyteller who can turn his crazy stories of the past to lessons on life for those who listened. Story telling was his way of bonding with people. Another thing he loved most was nature. Ranulfo was always seen either sitting at the park looking for birds to watch, or taking a walk with a pack of stray cats following him! He loved stray cats, he always cared for and fed them; ironically, he still wondered why the cats would follow him back home. His love for animals was equal to a human. Ranulfo loved socializing and making friends anywhere, he would go, and he will always be remembered by his animal and human friends, along with his family.
