Thomas Lopez

October 30, 1972 — February 24, 2024

Thomas "Tommy" Lopez, passed away suddenly on February 24, 2024, in Trenton, FL. He was born in Golfito, Costa Rica, on October 30, 1974 to Franciso Lopez and Maria Clairmont. His family moved to the U.S in 1982 and settled into Gilchrist County. 
A graduate of Trenton High School, Tommy not only received his education there but also thrived on the football field wearing #78. His passion for sports extended beyond his playing days as he found joy in watching Miami Hurricane Football.
Described as a man who loved all types of food and being close to the water, Tommy had a deep appreciation for the beauty of oceans, lakes, or rivers. In his free time, he also enjoyed bowling, playing pool and spending time with his family and friends. 
Tommy is preceded in death by his sister Ester Lopez, Grandfather Thomas Clairmont and Grandmother Jovita Mora Clairmont. 
Tommy will be dearly missed by his surviving family and friends. He is survived by his beloved children: Son Francisco Lopez, daughters Terraza Mitchell and Antonia (Jeff) Carter. His Mother Maria Clairmont, Father Francisco Lopez, brother Alfredo Paz, sisters Sara Clairmont, Paula Clairmont, and Laura (Joshua) Zehnder-Clairmont.
His legacy lives on through his grandchildren: Hagen Mitchell, Payton Mitchell, Raegan Mitchell, Kyson Gebo, Josie Carter, Marley Carter as well as another grandchild on the way whom they plan to name Thomas James "Tommy" Carter.
Tommy touched the hearts of many with his warm personality and genuine nature.  May he rest in peace knowing that he will forever hold a special place in the lives of those who had the pleasure of knowing him and live in "pura vida'. A Costa Rican philosophy that encourages the appreciation of life's simple treasures; to live a peaceful, simple, uncluttered life with deep appreciation of nature, family, and friends. It's more than just a saying... It's a lifestyle. One Tommy definitely lived by. 
A celebration of Tommy's life will be held on Sunday, March 10, 2024 at 3:00 P.M at Watson Milton Funeral Home in Trenton, FL. The family will receive friends for a visitation beginning at 2:00 P.M.
As we prepare to celebrate Tommy, the family requests that everyone attending wear white as a symbol of peace and pura vida.
Arrangements are under the care and direction of Watson Milton Funeral Home. (352)463-8888
