Funeral services for Redondo Beach resident Carlos Lopez, who died last Tuesday, are scheduled for 10 a.m. Tuesday, according to a post on the "Heroes Honor Firefighter Carlos Lopez Last Alarm 9/17/2013" Facebook page.
The services will take place at St. Catherine Laboure Catholic Church, located at 3845 Redondo Beach Blvd. in Torrance.
Lopez, 36, was a Hermosa Beach firefighter and paramedic. He was off-duty when he died, and the circumstances of his death were not made public.
Lopez had planned to compete in the Scott Firefighter Combat Challenge on Saturday; fellow Hermosa Beach firefighters ran in his place, and the entire event was dedicated to his memory.
Love a Hero—a charity honoring fallen firefighters, soldiers and police officers—has set up a website where people can donate money to help Lopez's family. Fellow firefighters also passed around a boot at this weekend's event.
In June, the firefighter-paramedic earned media attention and was recognized as a Good Samaritan after he rushed to the aid of a man stabbed outside a Belmont Shore eatery. Lopez was off-duty at the time of the incident.
