The loved ones of Arturo Joaquin Lucero, age 69, a.k.a. "Tatters, Jack, Jr., Art ", with great sorrow informed the world that he decided to go on life's eternal fishing trip. On Saturday, August 20, 2016 Arturo passed due to heart failure.

He loved fishing, hunting, bike rides, and taking his family out to eat. Arturo truly loved his family and friends and to all who knew Arturo, everyone was family and a friend!
