Arnulfo De La Cruz a longtime resident of South Bay, CA. Passed away on June 11th, 2009 in Torrance, CA. after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer. Arnulfo completely enjoyed inspiring people and accompanying them in times of need. He loved watching his five sons and ten grandchildren in their development and was extremely proud of all of them, none of which would have been possible without his wife Ana's constant caring and dedication. He worked at the United States Steel plant in Torrance until it shut down in the mid seventies. He thoroughly enjoyed life in Southern California for fifty years and kept fond memories of all cultures and regions that his delivery trucks took him to. Arnulfo's hospitality toward everyone and his contagious and enthusiastic personality are remembered and will be greatly missed by all whom he touched. Arnulfo nos dejo despues de una digna batalla con un cancer pancreatico. Arnulfo era residente del area de South Bay las ultimas cinco decadas. Le encantaba inspirar a la gente y le encantaba estar rodeado de familia y amigos. La encantaba ver el desarrollo de sus cinco hijos y sus diez nietos y se enorgullecia mucho de ellos al igual que de su esposa. Tambien se enorgullecia de la dedicacion y carino qur tiene su esposa Ana para sus hijos y nietos. Arnulfo trabajo en Mexico de Jefe de Estaciones de ferrocarril antes de trasladarse a Califonia in 1960. Trabajo en la planta acerera de United States Streel en Torrance hasta que clausuro la planta en los 70's. Despues se hizo camionero y rego a todo el sur de California con su espiritu alegre y festivo que todos la conociamos. Se fue gozando de las grandes memorias que le brindaron su familia y amigos. Descanse en paz querido esposo, padre, abuelo, amigo y maestro.
