RAMIRO "JOE" ARREDONDO Ramiro "Joe" Arredondo, long time resident of Corona, CA, passed away in his home in Temecula, CA on December 16, 2013. Ramiro was born in Gilbert, Arizona on October 9, 1921. While still a toddler he moved to Corona where he attended grammar and high school. Joe answered the call of duty in 1942 and served with the United States Air Corps in China-India-Burma. After returning home to Corona in 1945 Ramiro continued to serve his country as a civil servant at the Naval Weapons Center in Norco and China Lake. His retirement years were spent in Corona and Temecula, CA. Joe loved his country and came to its defense not only in active service, but when engaged in lively discussions with other old-timers over morning coffee at the local McDonald's. Joe loved to read, to watch documentaries, and always looked forward to watching his favorite team, the LA Dodgers. But most of all, Joe will be remembered for his dedication to his four daughters and most recently for his constant, loving care of his wife Jessie (Pino) during her extended illness and until her passing in 2007. He is survived by his sisters, Alicia Palacio, Rachel (Kelly) Hanson and Socorro Mencimer. He will be deeply missed by his four daughters and their spouses, Gloria Hernandez and William Brigman of Riverside; Lauretta Orosco and Terence Brunck of Santa Fe, NM; Joanna Galindo of Fallbrook, and Mona Arredondo of Temecula. Also surviving their grandfather are Michael Hernandez, Luann Orosco, Michele Cole, Anthony Galindo, and Jayne Rhodes; Grandpa Joe will be equally missed by his surviving eight great-grandchildren, and four great-great granddaughters. Services will be held on December 30, 2013 at 11:30AM at Arlington Mortuary, 9645 Magnolia Ave., Riverside CA. Graveside services will follow at the Riverside National Cemetery, Staging area #6 at 1:30 PM.
