José Lugo Arroyo, who lived in Christiansburg, Virginia, since August 2010, but was a native of Quebradillas, Puerto Rico, is now in God’s arms and reunited in glory with his wife, Delia, as of Sunday, November 28, 2021. He would have been 97 in January 2022. The oldest of 8 siblings, he joins two younger brothers (Carmelo & Santos).

José leaves behind in sadness, for he loved sharing with all, three daughters: Sylvia & husband Wilfredo Vélez, Sonia & husband Leslie E. Badillo, and Carmen Delia. Also six grandchildren with their respective partners that he kept tabs on, and delighted in hearing about their accomplishments: Daphne (Omar), Javier (Finale), Walter (Romit), Brian (Joy), Alex (Lindsey), and Michelle.

He was blessed to have shared with eight great grandchildren: Alejandro, Gustavo, Isra, Adi, Ella, Evangeline, Elijah & Emilio. Also, many extended family, including three sisters (Cleofe, Pedra, & Luz Maria) and 2 brothers (Gilberto & José Antonio). And of course, a huge number of friends, since he loved life and people everywhere he went.

The family will receive friends at Horne Funeral Home on Saturday, December 4th, from 2 to 4 p.m. to be with him on this earth one last time and reminisce on memories of the long and blessed life he was gifted by the Lord. We will follow with a service of thanksgiving & praise at the chapel.
