Wilson Urrutia Arandia, age 36, of Rose Hill left this earthly life way too soon on Tuesday, November 7, 2017 from Vidant Medical Center in Greenville due to cancer.
He was born December 3, 1980 in Valenzuela, Philippines and was the loving son of Estrella M. Ricci and step-father, John of Rose Hill and the late William Arandia.
Surviving, in addition to his parents, are his twin sons, Gabriel Adam Arandia and Tavyn Isaac Arandia of Greenville; sisters, Elleine Clay and husband, Jerome of Warsaw and Leila Foley and Chris Turner of Mt. Olive; his favorite nieces, Lily Brooke Foley and Mila Noel Turner and numerous extended family and friends that loved Wilson dearly.
Wilson was a devoted father and caring son and brother. He was a simple man who loved life to the fullest and his world revolved completely around his boys. With a witty personality, Wilson was a prankster who enjoyed making others laugh. He never met a stranger and loved being around people. Wilson’s passion was spending time with his boys and lifting weighs. He will surely be missed but treasured memories will forever remain in the hearts of those who knew and loved Wilson.
Funeral service will be held at 10:00am on Saturday, November 11, 2017 at Quinn-McGowen Funeral Home Wallace Chapel with Father Roch officiating.

Wilson was a wonderful guy...always smiling always joking. Met him at Pig..he would slip things in my grocery cart. I finally adopted him as a son...he accepted me as his second mama. Love him dearly and will miss him a lot. Always on my mind..forever in my heart my favorite son.
Prayers for peace and comfort to his precious sons..his sisters and sweet mom.

John 11:19, and many of the Jews had come to Martha and Mary to console them concerning their brother. Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. May Brother Wilson rest in peace and may God be a guide for his family and love ones in this great time of sorrow. Marcus & Phyllis Clay
