OBITUARY

Arnulfo Luna

December 22, 1948November 5, 2020

Arnulfo Luna was ushered to heaven in prayer on November 5, 2020. Born to Arnulfo and Teresa Luna in Fabens, Texas on December 22, 1948 and lifelong resident of both El Paso and Grand Prairie, Texas, Arnie was a devoted father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. His love of country, family, friends and faith carried him throughout his life, and exemplified how he lived.

A graduate of Jefferson High School in El Paso, Texas, he was a self-proclaimed Silver Fox in every way. Arnie enlisted in the U.S. Army and served two tours in Vietnam as a helicopter door gunner. He was lifelong devoted to the Americal Division, and proudly supported all past, present, and future Soldiers, Airmen, Sailors, and Marines. As an owner-operator of his trucking company, Valley Heights, he has the selfies to prove if you’ve been there, he’s been there, and he’ll tell you the mile marker.

Known by Dad, Pop, Grandpa and Grandpa-Grandpa , and some we a can’t mention here, he was most happy in the company of his kids, grandkids and great-grandkids. The dance sessions, mechanic lessons, under the table candy contraband stashes, and artwork collaborations make up our beloved Luna home base. Above all, he was a man of faith.

I will miss Arnie. He had wit and charm and was so funny. After going to Jeff and graduating in 1967, life sent all of us in separate ways. We reconnected on Facebook a couple of years ago on playing many hours on Word. He had excellent skills and I called him the Word Master. Last year, September 2019 our niece, Amanda, passed away at the age of 33 in El Paso. She had a tumor. Arnie attended the services and expressed his condolences. That was such a kind gesture. Gracias Amigo. I will miss your jokes and kindness. A true gentleman and a patriot. Thank you for your service!
