Br. Jerry Berns called me this morning to relate the loss of our Fraternity Brother Art Arocha.
Born Sergio Arturo Arocha in Mexico City, Art moved with his family to Los Angeles where he graduated from Lincoln High School. He was initiated into the Beta Chapter of Phi Delta Psi at Pierce College in the Fall of 1961.
After college, Br. Arocha began the manufacturing and distribution of leather goods. He and his wife Carmen sold that business and purchased a ranch in Mexico where he lived for many years.
Art stayed in touch with Jerry Berns, who learned of his passing this morning. Jerry describes Brother Art Arocha as the model example of the man who would come to a Fraternity Brother's aid without any excuses. He will be greatly missed.
Thanks for being part of our lives Arturo.
