In loving memory of

Arturo Rocha
September 12, 1950 - May 26, 2021

On Wednesday, May 26th, 2021 at 12:30pm beloved father, son, brother, and friend Arturo Rocha lost his battle with cancer at the age of 70. He fought ferociously for 2 years but in the end God summoned an Angel. Arturo Rocha left behind 3 Daughters, 6 Grandchildren, 2 step children and a wife of 23 years.

He immigrated from Michoacán, Mexico in 1968 in search of a better life for his wife and family. He quickly settled in northern California where he worked in agriculture for 51 years. During that time he grew to be respected and loved by all who knew him. He specially took stock in helping others who recently immigrated to the United States.

He loved LIFE, loved spending time with his siblings when vacationing in Mexico, and loved watching his beloved Cruz Azul Mexican soccer team on Sundays. He looked forward to sitting around the dining room table with his family cooking and enjoying the traditional Mexican dishes he grew up with. He was an amazing story teller and loved to talk about his childhood, family and all the wonderful sites of his native Mexican state of Michoacán. He was laid to rest on June 23rd, 2021 in Zamora Michoacán in the famed Lady of Guadalupe Cathedral.

Sincerely, His Daughter Myriam Guardado. Te Amo Papa!♥
