Jose Isabel Arrona Hernandez

Jose Isabel Arrona Hernandez, known fondly by his loved ones as “Chabelo,” passed away peacefully surrounded by family at his Winter Garden, Florida, home on May 13, 2024, at the age of 62. Jose is remembered as a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and loyal friend.

Jose was born on a small ranch near Leon, Guanajuato, Mexico, to Roberto Arrona and Delfina Hernandez on July 9, 1961. Jose was a loving husband for 35 years to Blanca Araceli Arrona. He was a proud father to his three children, Jose Isabel Arrona, David Eduardo Arrona, and Yesenia Araceli Perez Lopez, and a beloved father-in-law to their spouses, Elizabeth Audrey Arrona, Francis “Nani” Colon, and Salvador Perez Lopez. He was a devoted grandfather to his grandchildren, David Alexander Arrona and Sophia Aleah Arrona. Jose was a caring brother to his seven siblings, Felipe Arrona, Julio Arrona, Felix Arrona, Hilaria Arrona, Juan Hernandez, Juana Hernandez, and Roberto Arrona, and a cherished uncle to his nieces and nephews.

Jose came from humble beginnings and enjoyed living a simple life. He was known to all for his strong work ethic, which was instilled in him by his father at an early age. He found fulfillment in his work and was dedicated to providing for his family. After immigrating to the United States, he worked tirelessly to establish himself and form his family. He gave his family a better life and provided them the education he never received. He instilled in them the values of respect, hard work, perseverance, humility, and the importance of being a close family.

Jose’s love for sports was evident from his youth when he found joy in playing baseball. He was a dedicated soccer fan, always cheering for his country’s national team and Club Leon. Music was also a lifelong passion for Jose. He enjoyed listening to Mexican Ranchera music, playing the güiro, and learning the guitar and bass. But above all, his greatest joy was spending time with his family and grandchildren. Jose’s legacy is not just in the memories he helped create but in the profound impact he left on those he met throughout his life. He will be forever remembered and loved.

The family will honor Jose’s life with a viewing from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Wednesday, May 15, 2024, at Winter Oak Funeral Home (1132 East Plant Street, Winter Garden, Florida).

Mass Service will be held at Resurrection Catholic Church (1211 Winter Garden Vineland Road, Winter Garden, Florida) at 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, May 16, 2024, with a burial immediately following at Winter Garden Cemetery
