Obituary: Guy Ralph Lopez

Guy Ralph Lopez, 70, of Berlin, N.H., passed away on Friday, Oct. 15, 2021, at the Androscoggin Valley Hospital in Berlin from complications related to COVID-19. He was born to Robert and Jean (Silver) Lopez on May 31, 1951, in San Diego, Calif., where his father was stationed in the military, and he grew up in the Portland, Maine area. He graduated from Deering High School in 1970 and worked in management for McDonald’s, which eventually brought him to the North Country where he helped open the North Conway and Gorham, N.H., stores. Guy then moved to Berlin and began working in the paper mill for the rest of his career, retiring from Gorham Paper & Tissue in 2014.

He was very involved in local organizations where he selflessly dedicated his time and effort, including the Granite United Way, White Mountain Rotary, and the Androscoggin Valley Hospital Auxiliary. You could count on seeing Guy at almost every event happening in the Berlin-Gorham area, as he loved to help out in any way he could – be it cleaning up a community park, serving food to those in need, or donating his time for whatever was needed to ensure that an event was staffed and successful.
