Dennis Noah Arenas, 37, was born April 7, 1977, in Farmington, to Dennis Manuel Arenas and Leona K. Brown.
He was a loving father, son, brother, grandson, nephew, uncle and friend. Besides the pride and joy he had for his children, riding the Harley his dad gave him brought him joy and freedom. He was a man who shared his heart with his family and friends. There was no one who didn't know him who didn't love him. Dennis enjoyed family get-togethers. He loved to barbecue and spend quality time with his family and friends, the more the merrier. He had soft green eyes and warmed your heart with every hug.
Dennis was preceded in death by his father Dennis Manuel Arenas and grandparents, Rudy Arenas, Cruz Haws, Leon Brown and Cruz Martinez. He is survived by his wife Laura Arenas; son Jacob Arenas; and daughter Sistina Arenas; parents, Leona and Pete Krivakapich, Patricia Arenas; sisters, Katrina Arenas (Paul Chavez), Theresa Arenas, Rachel Arenas, Kristin Arenas; and grandmother Mary Martinez.
