August 15, 1958 - January 8, 2021
Arnulfo Avellaneda Antunez known as Arnold or Papa went to be with the lord on January 8, 2021. Arnulfo was born on August 15, 1958 to the union of Gabino Avellaneda Gomez and Juana Antunez Rojas. Arnulfo was a member of Gospel Light, Iglesia Bautista Luz Del Evangelo and was a dedicated member. He was a dad, grandfather, an uncle, brother, cousin and a great friend. He was born in Mexico but came to the United States as a teenager with his brother to live the “American Dream”.

Survivors are his ex-wife (great friend)Ada Antunez and daughters Maria and Graciela Antunez and two grandchildren, Marlee Witherspoon and Billy Searcy III.
