Wilson Urrutia Arandia



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.
