Obituary for Arturo Chavez

Arturo Chavez passed away Monday, November 13, 2017. Mass will be 11:00 a.m., Friday, November 17, at Sacred Heart Catholic Church with Rev. Benjamin Magnaye officiating. Visitation will be from 3:00-5:00 p.m., Saturday, November 18, at Wilkirson-Hatch-Bailey Funeral Home Chapel.

Arturo was born December 25, 1952, in Tecolcahuite, Jalisco, Mexico, to Santos and Carlota Chavez. Arturo served in the Mexican military from 1968 to 1972. After moving to the United States, Arturo began working for the Riverside Sanitation Department. Soon afterward he found his true passion in working with pallets. At a young age he owned a profitable business which allowed him to provide for his family despite a long battle with Polycystic Kidney Disease, being strong-hearted and never giving up despite many challenges. He was a wonderful son, a loving father, and an amazing friend. He was a well-respected man, not just in business but in his personal relationships. He will be missed by all he knew and loved.

He was preceded in death by his parents; three brothers, Marcelino, Juan and Domingo; one sister, Lupe; and one son, Arturo, Jr.

He is survived by his brothers and sisters, Petra, Chabela, Isidro, Amelia, Marichuy and Chayo; two sons, Joel Chavez and Jordan Chavez; two daughters, Natalie and Jeanea; and six grandchildren.

Memorials may be made to the Polycystic Kidney Foundation. The family invites you to leave a message or memory on our "Tribute Wall" at
