Arnold J. Padilla Jr., Age :41

Dec 28,1978---Mar 16,2020

Arnold J. Padilla Jr., 41, born on December 28, 1978 passed away peacefully on Monday, March 16, 2020, surrounded by his loving family.

He is preceded in death by his grandparents Belarmino and Tessie Trujillo and Cecilio and Melba Padilla.  He is survived by his daughter, Dawnica Bella; fiancé, Melissa Medina; parents, Arnold and Chrystal; sister, Candy; brother-in-law, Rich Sisneros and nieces, RaeAnn and Deandra.

Arnold was a graduate of Capital High School and worked as an electrician for 21 years.

Arnold was an amazing and loving father, fiancé, son, brother, uncle and friend. His daughter Dawnica Bella was his baby girl and the love of his life.  She meant the world to him and he was very proud of her.

Arnold was a generous, loving and outgoing person.  He had the ability to make a friend anywhere he went.  He loved the outdoors and enjoyed to fish and hunt.  He had a passion for music and dancing and was a self-taught drummer who enjoyed playing any chance he had.  Arnold will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him. 

A celebration of Arnold’s life will be celebrated at a later date.  Thank you for your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

 -John 3:16
