It is with sadness that we inform you of the passing of our brother Joey Arguelles to eternal life at around 1:50 AM this early morning, March 27, 2015.
He had a cardiac arrest at around 12:45 AM. The doctors tried their best to revive him for about an hour, but to no avail.
Let us all pray that the good Lord forgive him his sins, and welcome him to his eternal reward. Joey fought the good fight of faith till the end. We say goodbye to a good and faithful servant. Let us pray for his soul and condole with his wife Tess and their family.
A Brief Profile of Bro. Joey Arguelles
Joey Arguelles is a very unassuming person, and he himself will tell you that he is a promdi, (slang for "from the province") complete with Batangueno accent. But his dedication and commitment to Couples for Christ is unquestioned. He and wife Tess (nee Evangelista) attended the Christian Life Program in 1987 in Batangas City and they have never looked back. Joey has run the gamut of service within CFC-from being household head, to unit head, to chapter head and provincial area head of CFC Batangas. He has also served as Regional Area Head for Bicol. He was an elected member of the International Council, as Luzon Mission Director from 2012-2014. Before his death, he is a member of the CFC's Board of Elders.
Joey and Tess marriage has borne five children: Ma. Teresita, a dentist; Ma. Josefina, a doctor; Ma. Antoniette, a lawyer ; Joselito, a banker ; and Ma. Zarah Charisma, CFC fulltime worker with GKom...All active members of CFC Singles for Christ.
Joey has a very simple philosophy, one that has stood him in good stead, even in the face of the trials and difficulties of 2007: Fix our eyes on Jesus. He is in control!
