I will always remember many, many fond of my Tio Arturo. One fond memory is when Tio Turi held my son Arturo, (who was not a lightweight), at cousin Ruben graduation ceremony from Baylor University. Boy my Tio sure was strong!!!
I also recall cousin Pat telling me how his family went out of Coraleño, Chihuahua to a larger town to shop in a larger city. Tio Turis request from the big city was a toothbrush, the family forgot to bring him that toothbrush! Now my Uncle has EVERYTHING he ever will need our prayers assure his complete arrival to Jesus Christ the ULTIMATE goal in our lives and those of our ancestral family lineage.

Lo quiero mucho querido Tio Arturo lo extrañare mucho hasta que Dios nos reina. Gracias por ser un gran ejemplo de hombre, Tio, hermano, cuñado. Y siempre asombrada de que amoroso y familiar con sus hijas y Tia Lily.

Isabel sweet the little details my uncle had with you all. Like when fall season came and your pops brought you a pumpkin muffin just because. I'm sure there are many stories like that and congratulations to all of you cousins what a great dad you had.

My deepest and most heartfelt condolences for all of you. Sorry we could not be there for you all in this time of loss.

When we see each other we'll toast with a good whiskey shot in his honor.

Tia Lily you are a wonderfully blessed to of have known and spent time with Arturo. God bless you in this time of loss.

Clara, Guillermo, & Arturo from California

My Uncle Tury taught me many things including electricity. When we first brought our house in Pflugerville he rewired our garage lights to add 4' lights.

He also would rub my son's Manny forehead when he was born as he sat in his shaker bed to put him to asleep. Manny would be asleep in 2 minutes.

We will miss you Uncle Tury and dearly loved you

Duarte Family, Pflugerville TX.
