Jesus Carlos Plascencia Lopez 1933 — 2014

Jesus Carlos Plascencia Lopez

             It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Jesus Carlos Plascencia Lopez of Kamloops, BC, on April 15th, 2014 at 80 years of age. Carlos is survived by his wife, Ruth Lopez, children Tania (Steve) Bilcik of Creston, BC, Blanca (Almer) Fletcher of Kamloops, BC, Heidi (Frank) Schlick of Vauxhall, AB, and Carlos (Stacie) Lopez Jr. of Creston, BC, as well as Ian Roberston, James (Judy) Robertson, Carey (Michelle) Robertson, and David (Lori) Robertson. Also left to cherish Carlos’ memory are grandchildren Nicole, Christopher, Jamie, Colleen, Heather, Amanda, Sean and Liam, as well as great-grandchildren, Aaron Jr., Jaden, and Alexander. Carlos is also survived by his brothers, Gabriel, Federeico, and Clotilde. Carlos is predeceased by his father, Marciano, and mother, Isabella, as well as his brothers Alfredo, Antonio and José-Luis.

            Carlos had an amazing, and interesting, life. He ran pre-Olympic track, before tackling bullfighting, and later moving on to be an air force pilot in the Mexican Air Force. Carlos also graduated from the University of Guadalajara with a law degree. Always singing, he was finally noticed and offered a job as a professional entertainer, which he took and ran with for years. He loved to tinker and fiddle with just about anything he could get his hands on. Carlos will also be remembered for his witty and sarcastic sense of humour, but also for how funny his lost-in-translation quips could be.

Carlos was a deeply religious man, belonging to the St. John Vianney congregation for many years. He will be deeply missed by all that knew and loved him, but we will remember him always with the song in our hearts. The family would like to extend a special thank you to the nursing staff at Kamloops Hospice, Dr. Thomasse; to Blanca and Ruth, who never left Carlos’ side, and to Geoffrey at the Kamloops Funeral Home, for his assistance in this sensitive time. In lieu of flowers, donations in Carlos’ memory may be made to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice.

A Funeral Mass for Carlos will be held on Monday, April 21st, 2014, at 11:00am in the St. John Vianney Parish, with Monsignor Jeremiah Desmond officiating.
