<b><i>Fulfilling a dream...</b><br></i>
Several former players for the Denver Broncos professional football team (back row, center) pay a visit to Eddie and Sandy Lopez and their extended family in Moab on Saturday, July 18. Family members said Eddie Lopez, who was in the final stages of a yearlong battle against cancer, was delighted to meet some of the legends who had played for his favorite team over the years. The players — wide receivers Larry Brunson and Rick Upchurch, defensive back Billy Thompson, tight end Ron Egloff and tackle Dave Studdard — all signed the Broncos jersey that Lopez was wearing, and one of the players even let Lopez try on his Super Bowl ring. “My dad loved every minute of it, especially meeting Rick Upchurch,” said Michelle Lopez. The Broncos players, who were in town as part of a promotional appearance sponsored by Moab Chevrolet, also signed autographs for fans at Swanny Park last Saturday afternoon. Just two days after the players visited the family, Eddie Lopez died at the age of 58. Funeral services for Lopez are scheduled for 11 a.m. Friday, July 24 at the LDS Chapel at 475 West 400 North in Moab. A viewing will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, July 23 at Spanish Valley Mortuary. Courtesy photo
