Ollie Arriola


Olivarez Arriola Lopez, known to friends and family as "Ollie," was born on October 19, 1982. As of April 22, 2020, he now lives in our hearts and memories. Born in Guanajuato, Mexico, and raised in Bryan, Texas.

Ollie is survived by his daughter, Karisma Estrada; Mother, Carolina Arriola; Father, Olivarez Arriola; four brothers, Alberto, Jim, Alejandro and Arturo Arriola; three sisters, Azucena Leal, Enedelia Juarez and Carolina Arriola. Along with 22 nieces and nephews.

To many, Ollie is remembered by his lively and caring personality that could fill one's life by just meeting him once. There was not a day that you did not hear his name being shouted from his parents or siblings, followed by the most mischievous laugh he could give. His sense of humor has filled our hearts with memories we will never forget.

Growing up Ollie was accompanied by five younger siblings who became his first best friends. The special bond he had with each sibling is remembered today through laughs and tears because of the joy he filled their lives with.

The amount of love he had for his family only grew even more the day he became a father. Karisma was and will always be his greatest accomplishment in his life. There was not a day that Ollie was not grateful for the many important people in his daughter's life. She quickly became someone who will always have a special place in his heart.

Even during his toughest times Ollie was selfless and always showed compassion for the needs of others before himself. He had a free spirit that made him who he was. Not only did he care for his family, he also had such a big heart for his closest friends who were family to him.

May every memory, every laugh and every cry shared with Ollie, be remembered from this day forward.

Para muchos, Ollie es recordado por su personalidad vivaz y afectuosa que podría llenar la vida de uno solo al conocerlo una vez.

Su sentido del humor ha llenado nuestros corazones de recuerdos que nunca olvidaremos.

Al crecer, Ollie estuvo acompañado por cinco hermanos menores que se convirtieron en sus primeros mejores amigos. El vínculo especial que tenía con cada hermano se recuerda hoy a través de risas y lágrimas debido a la alegría con la que llenó sus vidas.

La cantidad de amor que sentía por su familia solo aumentó aún más el día en que se convirtió en padre. Karisma fue y siempre será su mayor logro en su vida.

Incluso durante sus momentos más difíciles, Ollie fue desinteresado y siempre mostró compasión por las necesidades de los demás antes que él. Tenía un espíritu libre que lo hizo quien era. No solo se preocupaba por su familia, también tenía un gran corazón por sus amigos más cercanos que eran familiares para él.

Que cada recuerdo, cada risa y cada llanto compartido con Ollie, sean recordados de hoy en adelante.
