Our hearts hurt to announce the passing of Isaac Arocho Valentin better known as (Kido & JiJe) to family and friends. He passed away in his home on July 4, 2021 in Springfield Massachusetts.
Isaac was born in Aguadilla, Puerto Rico to Brunilda Valentin and Francisco Arocho. He came over to the United States when he was 4 months old and lived the majority of his life in Connecticut. He worked at HomeGoods Distribution Center located in Bloomfield Connecticut as as a laborer.
Isaac was a very outgoing, charismatic and loving person. He loved cats, going to the beach, deep sea fishing, planting flowers, sunbathing and going to New York, especially Coney island. One thing that people did not know was that he could carry a good tune that now will be heard in heaven. His greatest love was family and friends.
Isaac is survived by his mother Brunilda Valentin, his brothers Rafael Arocho, Eriberto Arocho, Juan Arocho, Geronimo Lozano, Gregorio Lozano, his sisters Margarita Lozano, Iris Lozano, Brunilda Lozano, his cat Romeo, and lastly his son Christian.
Isaac's big heart and smile will be cherished through the memories he embedded in everyone he encountered & surrounded him. The light he carried when he entered a room will be forever missed but never forgotten.
His visitation will take place on Sunday, July 11th, from 5-8PM and on Monday, July 12th, from 9-9:30AM. Following visitation on Monday, a Funeral Mass will be held at St. Michael's Church in Newark, NJ. Interment will be in Rose Hill Cemetery, Linden NJ.
