Julio Arocho

September 29, 1940 — February 8, 2022


Julio Arocho, 81, of Quakertown, P.A., formerly of Fords, N.J. passed away peacefully in his sleep at home with his family on Tuesday, February 8, 2022. Born in San Sebastian, Puerto Rico, he was the son of the late Julio and Paula (Torres) Arocho. He was the husband of the late Amarilis (Velez) Arocho, with whom he shared 52 years of marriage before her passing in 2015. Julio co-owned and operated Best Buy Auto Parts, in Elizabeth, NJ for over 25 years. He had an incredible knowledge and passion for all cars, new, old, classics and antiques. In his spare time, he enjoyed watching the news, weather, baseball and boxing. Julio was the hardest working man you will ever know, a true workaholic. He was a man of few words but of good character.

He was responsible, dedicated, selfless, humble, honest and trustworthy. He was a man of Catholic faith who had a heart of gold and was always willing to lend a helping hand to whoever needed it. He had a contagious laugh and a smile that would light up the room. He was a beloved son, brother, husband. father, friend, uncle, nephew and cousin to many and he loved being a grandfather. He raised three children with his late beloved wife and was most proud to have the honor to be able to raise their first granddaughter/daughter Briana together.

Julio is survived by his children, Marta Arocho (Kenneth Pajak) of P.A., Julio J. Arocho (Elizabeth) of N.J. and Carlos Arocho (Andrea) of F.L.; his sister, Milagros Arocho Torres and brother Angel Luis Mendez of P.R. and his grandchildren, Briana, Riley, J.D., and Claudia Arocho. He is predeceased by this sister Ines Arocho Torres. We will miss you very much until we are reunited again in the kingdom of Heaven.
