Abel’s life began July 12, 1976, in Mexico. In 1995, he moved to Benton Harbor where he has enjoyed raising his family and working for Williams Farms. Abel was one of the best billiard pool players. One of the luckiest players because he was one in a million to shoot the 8ball in a corner shot. He made sure to always tell his team “Mexican Connection” that he was proud of their accomplishments and winnings. He enjoyed traveling, and exploring new adventures. He loved to have a good time and spend time with people who he genuinely cared for. He was known for his metaphors and open advice that he would give freely, even when people didn’t ask for any. He helped anyone and everyone. He never cared for materialistic things he only wanted to see the happiness and success in others. He was a man of many trades and he made sure that he taught those along the way. If anything is to be remembered it is that he never wanted those to cry for him after death because he believed that love was shown in life rather then after. Overall Abel was the man that everyone would wish to have as a best friend, husband and father.
Able leaves behind a loving family to cherish his memory including: his wife Adriana Perez, children; Anna Karen Lugo, Miracle Aurora Lugo, Adriana Lizbeth Lugo, siblings; Salvador Lugo, Jose Luis Lugo, Yolanda Lugo, Blanca Estella Lugo, Maria Araceli Lugo, Francisco Javier Lugo; mother Maria de Carmen Zamora; and many cousins, nieces and nephews.
