Arnold Arthur Flores Sr.

July 5, 1955 — August 26, 2023



Arnold Arthur Flores Sr., known fondly as Arnie, was born on July 5, 1955, in Uvalde, Texas to Amelia Gonzales Flores and Leopoldo Mireles Flores. He peacefully passed away on August 26, 2023, at Campbell County Memorial Hospital. Arnie fought a long battle for his health that culminated in his transition to the next life while his loving wife of 40 years, Sylvia Fuentes Flores, was close at his side.

Arnie's journey in life took him on various paths, but he dedicated most of his career to the field of carpentry. He began his work as a Roustabout for the oil rigs around Texas before eventually joining his father as a carpenter. Together with his father, Leo Flores, Arnie helped craft beautiful homes for many families. His dedication and skill earned him respect throughout the community, and he retired in 2010 after leaving behind a legacy of craftsmanship.

Despite his achievements in his career, Arnie's true joy came from spending time with his family. After retiring in 2010, he and Sylvia welcomed two grandchildren into their home. The love he showered upon them created cherished memories that will be treasured forever.

Arnie had a deep appreciation for the simple things in life. He was known for being quiet, kindhearted, and understated – always putting others before himself. His humble nature made an impact on everyone he encountered. Whether it was a genuine smile or a helping hand when needed most, Arnie touched the lives of many through small acts of kindness.

In addition to his love for carpentry and family, Arnie had a number of hobbies and interests that brought him great pleasure. He loved playing slots and somehow found tranquility amidst the bright lights and spinning reels. An avid outdoorsman, Arnie enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping, and four-wheeling – finding peace among nature's beauty. And who could forget his love for black coffee? Arnie found comfort in a cup of joe, savoring the simplicity of its rich aroma and bold flavor. He could often be found spending lazy days watching Gunsmoke and his other favorite Westerns on TV, finding solace in the tales of the old frontier.

Arnie leaves behind a loving family who will forever cherish his memory. He is survived by his devoted spouse Sylvia Fuentes Flores, their children Arnold Arthur Flores Jr., Clarissa Ann Flores, Carissa Ann Flores, Catalina LaNay Flores, Arnold's son Fabian Flores, and Sylvia's son, Luis Antonio Fuentes. He is also survived by his sister Alda Ema Banda and twelve beloved grandchildren.  He was preceded in death by his parents, Leopoldo and Amelia Flores.

Arnold Arthur Flores Sr.  will always be remembered as a man of integrity, kindness, and unwavering dedication to his family. His legacy lives on through the homes he built and the love he shared. May his soul find eternal peace as we honor his memory with gratitude for the profound impact he had on our lives.

A memorial service in Arnie's honor will be conducted in the near future.  Return to this site for updated details.
