Dear friends and family, it is with a heavy heart that we announce the death of Joaquin Arcos. You may have known him as Joaquin, "walkin" or "Jack".

He was the best father, an exemplary husband, a spoiling grandfather, a brother, a son and a great friend. For those of you that knew him, knew him with a smile. He had so many health issues but yet always lived life with the biggest smile.  When he was diagnosed with cancer, it was devastating and yet he continued each day with a giving spirit, living life to the fullest. He loved people, culture and languages, especially Chinese. So many sweet memories. His passing comes with grief but his grief and pain is now over. Thank you to all of those that took the time to know him and love him. Joaquin fought cancer till the very end — he was a fighter! Joaquin was 67 years old.
