Obituary for Julio Arriaga
Julio Arriaga, 78 from Orlando, FL went to be with the Lord Tuesday, August 29th, 2017 after a long struggle with Liver failure. He was born on June 20th, 1939 in Comerio, Puerto Rico to Ramon and Ana Arriaga Rivera. He was the 3rd youngest of 11 siblings. They have all passed with the exception Zoraida Arriaga, who lives in Puerto Rico. He married his wife Shirley Truax Arriaga on November 10th, 1961 in Baltimore, MD at the Strawbridge Methodist Church. He retired from Harland in Puerto Rico where he worked as a Supervisor for many years. His passion was working, planting and raising animals in his native land, Puerto Rico. He loved playing the guitar and singing. He loved his family: he had a great sense of humor, always saying jokes and acting silly. He would say "I'm a clown, what can I say?' He is survived by his loving wife Shirley Truax Arriaga; children Yvonne (David) Olivencia and Julio J. Arriaga; grandchildren Andrea (Hector) La Torre, Edgardo Rodriguez Arriaga and Julianna Arriaga Martinez.
"Dad is now singing with the angels in heaven and reunited with his family and friends. I will always remember his smile and laughter. Dad was a man with integrity, with love of Christ in his heart, who fought a good battle, but now is at peace with God our Father." Amen.-Yvonne Olivencia
