Not sure what to say?

Was saddened to hear of Carmen's passing. I knew him so many years ago growing up together on Kensington Avenue in Roseland. Over the years I'd run into him a few times in the Calumet City/Lansing/Munster area, and he always had time to stop and chat and exchange a hug. I'm sure he will be missed by many...My condolences to his family, children and grand children ~


I knew Carmen from CSW He was really a terrific Guy, and always had a GREAT smile and attitude! He will surely be missed!

Our heartfelt condolences to all the Arvia family. Carmen was a great husband, loving father and grandfather, hardworker, with a kind and compassionate soul who always brought laughter wherever he was. Loved by many, he will be sorely missed. Hold God close during these painful days when nothing makes sense or seems fair. Rest in peace Carmen.

CJ, So sorry to hear about the sudden passing of your father. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this time. Just remember the good and funny times you had with him cause laughter helps you heal.

Barry and I will miss a great friend and wonderful man. We already feel the void. Our prayers to his loving wife and family to find comfort and memories to hold forever in their hearts. Rest in peace Carmen.

I guess God wants you more than we need you. I am so grateful you were my friend for so many years. So many fond memories but yet so many could have been made. To say you will be missed is so understated. Love you DEAR.

So-so-so sorry to hear about Carmen
Such great memories!!!! Wonderful man with a wonderful family!!!
May he rest in peace

Take comfort in reading Ecclesiastes 9:5 in your Bible regarding the loss of your loved one.

With deepest sympathy Ariva Family. Carmen was one of the most endearing, entertaining, gentle, kind and caring man on this earth. I know heaven will enjoy and love him as much as much as we all did.
