Rigoberto Antonio Arriola, 55, of Sharpburg, GA passed away on October 6, 2021. He was born in San Salvador, El Salvador on September 26, 1966 to Ortencia Lopez and Rigoberto Arriola.

Rigoberto loved and cared for everyone and was always looking out to help people in need offering a lot of food and needs to people in need around the world. He was free spirited and loved to spend his time in different local bar and restaurants. His way of expressing his love was very different and sometimes taken as rough love but his heart was full of it (Family, friends and people he wanted to help). He taught us about respecting our parents and loving them while we had them. He was dedicated and hard working. He owned his own construction company and always employed people in need of work and also offering his home for people to stay. He loved the beach, the mountains (all nature). His dream was to one day go back to his country to live and to travel the world to see all the beauty it has to offer. He also loved beers, steak (good foods), and his cigars.

Rigoberto is survived by his three children, Christoper, Susan and Valerie Arriola; his granddaughter, Emiliana Barrero; his sisters, Iris Arriola and Yanira Gomez; and his nieces and nephews.

A visitation will be held at Carmichael-Hemperley Funeral Home & Crematory in Peachtree City, GA from 5:00pm-8:00pm on Tuesday, October 12, 2021 Funeral services will be held in the chapel on Wednesday, October 13, 2021 at 4:00pm.

Y ahora yo te pido señor de los cielos que no me des el olvido. Y estés siempre conmigo hasta alcanzar tu salvación. (Escrito por Rigoberto Arriola)

And now I ask you, lord of heaven, not to forget me. And be always with me until you reach your salvation. (Written by Rigoberto Arriola)

You are deeply loved and missed by so many, Rigito. Thank you for sharing the best parts of you with me.

Christopher wanted to write something to you. He then looked at the eloquent words others wrote and felt he didn’t have enough to write. He just wanted to say “ I love you daddy!”

This little guy of ours misses you so much. I hope he continues to find you in his dreams and with signs you send him and in his habits and heart and soul.

Hardest part for me is understanding and accepting the fact that my tio is gone emotions flaring with sadness tears and anger asking God why? So I went to your house tio, as I sat there listening to oldies spanish music you liked while in tears thinking of the countless times we shared and bonded over. I can remember all times we had at family gatherings and one on one. Whether it was working together having a beer or two or listening to you vent or you FARTING in the truck while driving locking me in laughing as you picked your nose 😫, I can ALWAYS say those memories will remain close to my heart for eternity. If I had no place to go you would take me in, if I was ever hungry needed clothes or someone to talk to I could always count on you. To see you gone truly crushes my heart deeply, but my soul knows your in heaven with GOD!

Forever you will be Missed
Forever you will be Cherished
Forever in our Hearts, Minds and Souls for Eternity

An open letter:
I've reflected on so many memories, from birthdays to asados to movies etc. I think of when we moved to GA, you opened your home. You've done the same with many over the years. You gave each of us opportunities in the form of generosity. You gave us real laughter.
When I was younger, I recognized how the energy would shift when you entered the room or event. I thought it was the nature of your being. You didn't ask for it, but you were freely given respect and esteem. As an adult, I now know why.
If I look at just your work? In 1 motion, again, you gave opportunities and fulfilled dreams of what some call "Home." How many family pictures will be hung on walls you've helped paint? How many children will take their 1st steps on floors you've helped make? How many mouths has that fed?
Tio, I weep.
Your reach is greater than my mind can grasp. You are 10 feet tall in my eyes. You have impacted a countless number of our lives, in your living and passing. "I will hold you in my heart until I can hold you in heaven."

I love you, Tio Rigo! You are deeply missed.

E escrito este mensaje muchas veces ya en completa negación de que la realidad es que partiste. Mi querido viejo, es increíble que ya no estés junto a nosotros pero se qué estás en un mejor lugar. Llevo días pidiéndole a Dios y a ti que me des una señal de que estes bien ya que se que no estabas 100% preparada para tu partida pero los planes de Dios a veces son otros y inexplicables. Me senté afuera en un momento y lloré y lloré y cuando miro al cielo las nubes hicieron una forma de corazón y supe que esa era mi señal de tu parte y de Dios diciéndome que todo está bien.
No sabes cuánto daría , nada de lo que quedo vale y lo diera todo para tenerte junto a nosotros así sea unos meses/días o así sea unos minutos más. Te amo padre y tu memoria vivirá por siempre porque aún con tu forma particular de ser , llenaste tantos corazones porque tú corazón era noble, compresivo, siempre dispuesto a ayudar y más que todo estabas acercándote a Dios.
Te amo padre, te amamos y aunque sea inexplicable espero que en Paz descanses. No tengas miedo ni dudas pues de mi parte siempre estaré pendiente y presente de tus hijos, de tu familia y de ti ... así sea en el cielo.

The day God took you home. A million times I’v cried, If love alone could have saved you. You never would have died. In life I loved you dearly. In death I love you still . in my heart you hold a place. No one else can ever fill. It broke my heart to lose you . But you didn’t go alone Part of me went with you The day God took you home . fly free my little baby brother , and wait for me in eternity fly free my free spirit my baby brother my sapo.

No hay palabras que consuelen el dolor
De su partida . Que Dios reciba su alma y lo reciba en su santo Reino.
