Aristeo Escareno, Jr.
November 20, 1941 - October 03, 2021
We are grateful to have loved him and heart broken to have lost him. A long resident of Arizona but born in Harlingen, Texas. Moved to Phoenix in 1961. Worked as a Bus Driver for 20 years in Phoenix, AZ area and 15 years in Hereford, AZ area, and eventually retiring in Sierra Vista, AZ.
He loved the outdoors, fishing, vintage automobiles, different types of firearms and western movies. He was a cowboy at heart and liked to dress the part from belt buckles, western shirts to cowboy hats. In his latter years, the grace of God led him to put his trust in his Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Enriched with joy of his relationship with God he began to enjoy life brand new with a smile. And to top off his new joy, he was happily baptized by his Pastor Grandson, Bernie Rivera Jr. In the end he left this world with eyes open and a smile as he entered the arms of his Saviour, Jesus Christ on October 3rd at 4:02pm.
He is survived by two daughters, Ana Rivera and Emma Sigala, three sons Aristeo Escareno III, Eddy Escareno and Vincent Escareno; four siblings Ernesto Escareno, Ricardo Escareno and , Ana Maria Garcia and Michelle Lopez. He is predeceased by three siblings Inez Escareno, Antonio Escareno, and Miguelito Escareno.
