Efrain Arroyo

(1939 - 2016)

He came to Woolwich with his Dad at age 14. Offered the choice between working and school, Efrain jumped at the opportunity to work. For years he traveled back and forth between Puerto Rico, Florida and New Jersey, but Woolwich always remained his favorite place. Efrain was friends with local farmers and
worked at Mike’s Corner, running the store and making deliveries. Most knew him as Frank. He worked hard and saved until he could buy his own vegetable farm.
While working in a packing house in Florida Efrain met Netty. Soon they married and settled in Woolwich where they raised their 3 daughters, Rosa Arroyo, Luz Marx and Julie Hawk. He is also survived by a brother, Ray, sisters: Olga Cruz, Elaine Quiles, Maria Arroyo-Mendez, Carmen Arroyo-Gonzalez, a brother in law, Jose Ruiz, a niece, Beatrice Ruiz and 6 grandchildren.
Come celebrate 77 farming years Thursday 6-8 p.m. and from 9-10 a.m. Friday at Daley Life Celebration Studio, Swedesboro where the service will be at 10 a.m. Burial Lake Park Cemetery, Swedesboro.

    Your family is in mine, Connie’s and our Church friends thoughts and prayers.

    2 Corinthians 4:17-18
    For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.
    So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
