Peter Henry Arreola

July 9, 1950 ~ December 8, 2022 (age 72) 72 Years Old


Pete Arreola passed away in his sleep at his home on 12/08/2022. He

leaves behind four children, Lila McLean, Phil Arreola (Maya Rizk), Andy

Arreola, and Marilee Farrell (Marty), as well as a grandson, Tyrone

McLean. His surviving family includes Lenore Ambrozaitis (John),

Lourdes Cooney (Michael), Daniel Arreola (Luz), Lydia Roe (Steven), Louis

Arreola, David Arreola (Kathy Gray), Arreola de la Fuente, and Samuel

Arreola, as well as numerous nieces and nephews, all of whom he dearly

loved, and the mother of his children, Kathy Silardi.


He was preceded in death by his sister Linna Burgess, and his parents

Daniel and Lenore Arreola.


Pete spent most of his working life with the Forest Service in the Hiawatha

National Forest, loved living in Rapid River before he retired and moved to

Arizona, where he lived with two of his children and his grandson, along

with his cherished German Shepherd, Amelia, a Great Dane, Calypso, and

three black cats, Binx, Myst, and Tink. He has said these last few years

have been the best years, no matter how chaotic, and loved Zooming with

his family. Pete was always larger than life, filled with boisterous

enthusiasm, and an ever present sense of humor - the sound of his

infectious laughter filled many hearts. He will be greatly missed by

everyone who knew him.


The immediate family wishes for privacy at this time, but will arrange a

memorial in Michigan in the new year. In lieu of flowers and cards please

donate to the ASPCA, Verde Valley Medical Center, or the VA in his honor.
