It is with great sadness that the family of Armando Noriega announces his passing, on Sunday, December 9, 2018, at the age of 89 years. Armando will be lovingly remembered by all his sons and daughters, family and friends. He will also be fondly remembered by his beautiful grandchildren. He had 89 years of experience and lessons that he would share with the world lovingly and selflessly. He was a warm, charming, funny, charismatic and "handsome gentleman" (he wouldn't like it if I didn't mention it). He was an imperfect man striving for perfection but made up for it by example every day he was in our lives. He was a son, a brother, a father, and grandfather. He was our light house that will be missed dearly. His family and friends will hold his memories and beautiful lessons deep in their hearts forever. Love you aPa! A Funeral Service in memory of Armando will be held on Saturday, December 15, 2018 at 2:00 pm, with a viewing starting at 12:00 pm, at Richardson Funeral Home 2621 South Rural Road Tempe, Arizona 85282 (480) 449-1000, with Father Thomas Hallsten officiating. A gathering with friends and family will follow at the Noriega family home to celebrate his historic life. Those who so desire are welcome to come and pay their last respects at his memorial and the gathering afterward. Richardson Funeral Home, Tempe, Arizona is compassionately serving the family.
