Florentine Road between Lake Valley Road and Glassford Hill Road will be closed Wednesday, July 6, 2022, from 8AM to 2:30PM for the memorial service of Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office Sgt. Rick Lopez. The memorial service will begin at 1PM at the Findlay Toyota Center, 3201 N Main Street.
Entrances to the Findlay Toyota Center will be closed for all but law enforcement access. Public parking will be available in the field north of Findlay Toyota Center between Lakeshore Drive and Veteran’s Way.
The service is open to the public, however, there is limited seating. The doors will open at 12:30PM. All attendees should be in their seats by 12:55PM when the doors close for the 1PM service. YCSO has noted that Sgt. Lopez’s family asks attendees to not wear somber black – “RLo” would want more vibrant clothing! The ceremony will be Livestreamed on the YCSO Facebook page at www.facebook.com/YavapaiCountySheriff for those unable to be in attendance.
A large law enforcement memorial procession will take place starting at 11AM from the Sunrise Funeral Home to Fain Road, across to Hwy 89A, and back to Glassford Hill Road to the Findlay Toyota Center. If you encounter the procession, please be patient as law enforcement honors their fallen brother.
