Manfred Lopatka, 93, of Winter Park, Florida, died on May 9, 2016 at his home surrounded by family and friends. He was born in Germany, earned his Architectural degree at the University of Lubeck, and eventually started his own firm in Winter Park. His works embraced the variety of buildings in the US and abroad, and have made the world a more beautiful place. His outgoing personality touched the lives of many. He is survived by his wife, Evelyn of 66 years, three children, five grandchildren and he is pre-deceased by his daughter, Susan. A  private memorial service will be held to honor and celebrate his life at the convenience of the family.

    I was most unfortunate in that I didn't know Mr.Lopatka for more than a few months before he passed on. However, in that time I saw a warm, gentle soul. I saw love between a husband and wife that is rare. I saw the compassion in others that only comes from loving someone who elicits that feeling in others. I only regret that I didn't know him longer. I believe he is at peace now.

    I met Fred in 1968 and started working with him as I started to pursue architecture . I was again working with him when I became registered. I guess three times is a charm. I traveled to Europe with Fred and Evelyn and they were the greatest.
    Fred, you will truly be missed.

    I've lost a very dear friend and beloved business partner of many years. Fred was always so optimistic, especially when business was off. We had many awesome years together and many great trips with our wives. God Bless you Fred!
