Ronald Jerome Arroyo, 67, of Saint George, SC, spent his birthday amongst the angels on September 2, 2021, surrounded by his beloved family and closest friends.

He is also survived by his brother and sisters and their spouses; John Z. Arroyo (JoAnn) of Guam, Theresa A. Matanane (���Tom) of Guam, Patricia A. Rodriguez of Guam, and Cynthia A. Sato (Clark), his mother-in-law Mary H. Utsey (�����Carlisle), sister in law �����Carla A. Utsey (Karen), and all of his cherished nieces and nephews. A memorial service will be held at Saint George United Methodist Church in Saint George, SC on Wednesday, September 8, 2021 at 12:00 noon with visitation at 11:00 am.

Ron “Audy” Arroyo was always destined to be the “cool” guy. Not “cool” in the sense of having the best, newest fad or designer clothes. Nor was he “cool” for trying to be popular and well-liked. He was “cool” in the way he was always his authentic, humble self - he walked the walk, not just talked the talk. He was “cool” alone and in a crowd of people; he had a way of making you feel like you were the only ones in the room. He was “cool” because he was a good person: he listened when others spoke, he held doors open for them, and gifted everyone with a smile and a hug; he was compassionate, charming, quick witted, and full of life. He never had to prove himself because he just was, there was no denying it. He was the cool brother, dad, husband, uncle, and friend. He cared and loved people so deeply and made such a unique impact on everyone he touched. We hope that those who had the privilege of knowing him will continue to embody the impact he’s had on you.
