Joe Aranda, 79, died peacefully on November 18, 2020.

Joe was born September 14, 1941 in Denver, Colorado the son of the late Paul Sr. and Cora (Montoya) Aranda. Joe was the 4th oldest of the Aranda children. He was preceded in death by sister Rosie (Herman) Garner and brother Paul Aranda, Joe is survived by siblings Rachel Aranda, Robert (Esther) Aranda, Betty Williams, Stella (Richard) Gomez, Maurice (Lynda) Aranda, and Arthur (JoAnn) Aranda. Joe graduated from Manuel High School in Denver, Colorado in 1959. He served in the US Army both Active Duty and Reserve and was Honorably Discharged in December 1969. Joe worked for the IBM Corporation in Boulder, Colorado and was transferred to the Tucson, Arizona plant in 1978. Joe and family were lucky enough to be transferred with life-long friends – John and Lorraine Cooper. Joe retired from the IBM Corporation after 27 years of service to them. He was not ready to be “retired” yet when he went through Correction Officer Training and worked at the Tucson, Arizona Work Release Jail Program for over three years. Joe is also survived by his two loving children Shawn Aranda and Laura (Chris) Border, and their mother, Kathy Aranda. Joe was very loved by his four grandchildren – David Shawn Aranda, Jr., Tristen Thompson, McKenzie Thompson, and Jessica Border. Joe had “bonus” grandkids that he cared for very much- Gabriella (Ty) Harris, Nicholas Baracz, and Kinsey Auckly. Joe had many nieces and nephews that he not only adored but would do anything for. Joe loved the outdoors and was an avid hunter, golfer, and fisherman. Joe was a man of few words but loved to sing. He recorded a song titled “Addio Addio” as a young man that was professionally produced and made into a 45-record. When his four-legged best friend, Rags was alive, Joe and Rags took daily walks. Joe’s only wish was to be reunited with his pal one day. He always rooted for Raiders as his favorite football team, but we all knew it was just to spite us. Joe also loved to watch his TV – he spent his last moments finishing his latest Netflix binge, NCIS. “See you later, alligator!” Services for Joe Aranda will be on December 4, 2020 at 1:00pm.

I miss dad very much. My heart goes out to all of my 2nd family. Joe treated me just like one of his own children, and I will never forget that. I have been grounded by the family for having a party when my parents were out of town and the cops were called and had to bring up my grades! That was a funny thing because school was not my thing. I remember staying the night at the house with Laura and I would sneak out because I was on a short leash at my home! When I would try to sneak back in I would have to knock on a window and Shawn would have to let me in. The next morning dad said “Heather, next time use the front door!” I have so many memories and he will be greatly missed! I LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU DAD! I know you are watching over all of the kids and grandchildren! XOXO

Uncle Joe, I’m at peace because I know where you are. I always wanted to know where you were and what you were doing. You were my back up against Eddie, we had so much fun and we always won. I’m going to miss you so much, I missed you when you got sick but I thought you come home so I waited for you. Now our Lord was waiting for you and he won, He’s going to take care of you until I get there. Eddie misses you so much. He can’t seem to do anything around the house or fix anything with out you. If you couldn’t fix it then the other brother was called in Maurice. The three of you would do so much together. I loved hearing the laughing, arguing and who was right. I got the house remodeled to keep them together. The house is so quite without you singing, teaching Mocka tricks and joking. Mocka misses you too. Mocka still goes in your room looking for you. Our house isn’t the same. Our hearts are broken for awhile until we see you again. We loved you so much. We know you are okay with Our Lord.

Always Eddie and Joann

One of my many memories of Joe is when we lived in Show Low and went fishing a lot. It always had to be a competition between the men and women. Since there was one more man than woman every other time Joe had to be on the women's side. He would put on his crazy hat and act like a woman. I am so proud to call him a life long friend. He will be sorely missed.

I first meet Joe at IBM Tucson when we both worked in the same function in BLDG 060. We hit it off right away and over the years became friends through IBM Club fishing and golf Tournaments, always time for creating new and sharing great stories. After retiring up to the White Mountains, Mike and I would reach out and catch up with Joe while we were camping at Fool Hollow Lake, and it would seem like no time had past between our friendship. When you meet good folks, you just know that something is being added to your life's journey....and that was the way it was with Joe. God rest friend!

Joe and I were friends for over 40 years. Many of those years after retirement were spent in the White Mountains of Show Low ,Arizona. We were fishing, hunting, and golfing buddies. Joe was a much better hunter than I was but at golf we were about even. We did have a few disagreements and go to hell moments but usually the next day we back together doing whatever. Joe was always willing to help a guy out with whatever you needed. I will always remember the laughs and the good times.

My memory is when we used to play cards over Eddie‘s house we would play for a few hours and you would win all the time and then when 10 o’clock came he would say OK time to quit time to go to bed and then we tell you come on Joe let us win our money back and you tell us no sorry it’s 10 o’clock time for me to go to sleep so we say OK. I love playing cards with him because he was so silly he made us all laugh he was a very strong man, he knew how to do about everything all you had to do is ask him and he knew how to do it. May you rest in peace my brother, I love you I love you very much. ❤️🙏🏼❤️🙏🏼❤️🙏🏼
