February 1, 1936December 17, 2020

Arrieta, Inocencio “Ariel” Ramos: passed away peacefully in Dania Home, Burnaby, BC on December 17, 2020 at the age of 84 after complications from an infection which led to a sepsis state. Ariel will be lovingly missed and remembered by his beloved wife Betty (married for 57 years); his 1st son Rhoele (daughter Clea and son Rhys), his 2nd son Roy (wife Cally, sons Raphael and Gabriel), his sister Epifania "Fanny" (son Edward, daughters Rose and Raquel), his late brother Jesus' son Joswel and daughter Vangie, his youngest brother Manuel "Manny" (wife Owen, daughters Angele and Amie), and many nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.

Ariel was a humble man that was born on February 1, 1936 in Bauan, Batangas and graduated Law School in 1962 from Far Eastern University. He passed the Bar to practice as an Attorney in the Philippines. He immigrated to Vancouver, Canada with his wife in 1972, leaving behind a tumultuous time in the Philippines where Martial Law was declared. In 1974, finally reuniting with his young boys who were left in the Philippines, he worked feverishly in his new life where he eventually landed managerial roles for Royal Trust, Canada Permanent Trust and Montreal Trust Companies in both Vancouver and Calgary. Prior to his retirement he endeavored in the Realty and Insurance businesses. He found a closer connection to his Faith, and became a 4th Degree Knight of Columbus.

Many recognized Ariel as a very intelligent, compassionate, family loving and God revering man. He spent time playing golf, enjoyed having coffee with his friends at the Metrotown Food court, and enjoyed going to restaurants sharing delicious meals with Betty, family and friends.

Ariel’s private Viewing is on Tuesday, December 29, 2020 at Forest Lawn Funeral Home. A private Funeral Mass at St Mary’s Parish on Joyce Street, followed by a private Interment at Forest Lawn Cemetery will take place on Wednesday, December 30, 2020.

Eternal rest grant unto the soul of Ariel Lord & let Perpetual light shine upon him. May he rest in peace.

Thanks God I was given the chance to talk to him with Jek assisting, few days before he finally say goodbye. After which memories flash back with tears coming out from my eyes.

How nice & loving this brother-in-law to me. When he said that, we are coming home as balikbayans, we were all excited including their old friends & classmates. With their 3 weeks stay in Manila he made sure to meet all of his friends, love ones & relatives. They come home in the Phils every other year, but later on the doctor advised him to stop from travelling because of his health. We all felt sad about it.

After talking to him and greeting him Merry Christmas, today its goodbye Ariel and may you rest in peace with the Lord..

Praying for you...

Ate Rosie

❤️ Uncle Ariel... May perpetual light shine upon you and may you Rest In Peace. 🙏🏼

Uncle, your calm and beautiful smile will stay with us forever. You have a very welcoming and relaxed personality. I don’t have any recollections of you being mad, sad, nor upset. You’re such a “cool” uncle.

I will cherish the memories of all the fun we had in Disneyland with Auntie Betty. I didn’t mind the long and a bit scary drive going there because all I know was the excitement and fun we were having. Indeed the “happiest place on earth” manifested that day spending with both of you.

Will never forget the great time in Las Vegas with other relatives. All cramped in a car but again didn’t mind the tight space because of all the laughter. It felt like teenagers taking a road trip.

Bostonian brand shoes was your favorite. You have an eye for a great style and it showed. That day that you got a pair for yourself was such an enjoyable day. Seeing you so happy and grateful to own a brand new pair made the day even better.

Realizing that you were our last surviving uncle and now gone , made me miss you even more.
But you’re in a better place now with our dearly departed and will join them to watch over us. And for that , we thank you.

Rest well Uncle.... until we all meet again.
We love you Uncle Ariel. ❤️🙏🏼
