Deputy Lopez, along with another Okaloosa County Deputy (Warren Keith "Skip" York), was killed in the line-of-duty after being shot by a domestic violence suspect, they were attempting to arrest near Crestview in Okaloosa County, FL.

Deputy Lopez joined the Okaloosa County Sheriff's Office, October 5, 2003, after having served twenty years in the USAF. He had retired from the USAF with the rank of MSGT.

Burton Lopez was the son of Jesse (dec'd.) and Virginia Lopez, and the husband of Michelle.
