Fred, you did much for the Santa Barbara Non-profit community over so many years. You were a true man of the sea and a pioneer in eco-tourism.
I will cherish the many memories of the old Condor days with SBCC and NOAA fundraising. Pescatores whale watching, our trip to China and the many gatherings on the hill- Fair Winds and Following Seas..

I was one of Fred's original "galley girls" when he opened Sea Landing at the Harbor underneath the John Dory Restaurant many years ago. He was a fine man & will be forever missed in our beautiful city & Harbor for all he has done & accomplished here. His legacy will live on & he will always be remembered. He may not be resting in peace but kicking up his heels on the other side. LOVE

Fred you are a Marine in every sense of the word. Once a Marine you will always remain one. General Fred Lopez will admonish anyone who says otherwise. I knew you enjoyed acting occasionally but until I read your obituary I never knew you played a musical instrument.. The entire world loved you and we only wish we were there for you when needed;

Fred, you are my friend, mentor, and surrogate Santa Barbara father! You always believed in me, even when I did not. Your generosity, free spirit, and zest for life is permanently ingrained in everyone who was fortunate enough to know you. I love you with all my heart and soul and I will never forget all that you have done and taught me. Rest in peace my captain!
