Marcos Arroyo Memorial Fund
Organized by: Joe Arroyo
Our brother Marcos Chema Arroyo unexpectedly lost his life on June 18, 2016. He was a cherished father, son, brother and friend. He was blessed with the gift of genuine kindness, love, courage and generosity. He was always willing to help others in need as he was a person who was often guided by his heart. He felt for others. Through him many of us learned the true value of friendship and the real meaning of family. While Marcos loved many things greatly, including soccer, nothing mattered more to him than his children. Many whose lives have been touched by Marcos's amazing soul, have reached out asking how they can help. Along with your continued prayers we are asking that you help support his children (Talin 7 and Talia 11). His dream was to be able to provide enough for them to attend college and help them realize their goals. We know he will be there with them in spirit to guide them along the way. And although he would never ask for any type of handout, there are many who have asked how they can contribute or how can they help. Contributions for this fund will go towards Our Lady of Mercy School, a school near and dear to his heart. We will also donate to the Merced Youth Soccer Program, as he loved coaching not only his children, but all children who loved soccer. Finally, remaining proceeds will go towards college education for his children. We know his heart would melt, should even a penny be contributed. Thank you to all who loved him, we promise to carry that love forward. Veronica, Melissa and Chema.
