Arquimedes was employed at Arcelor-Mittal Steel as an electrician; he loved spending his free time with family and friends; and travelling to his favorite destinations - Neyba, Dominican Republic, Argentina, and Miami, Florida; he enjoyed dancing Dominican music bachata y merenguel; and loved listening to the oldies. He loved to watch baseball, especially a Dominican local team "El Licey" Arquimedes positively impacted the life of the many people he came in contact with; beloved by everyone he met; and helping out everybody anyway he could. He was a Father figure to many; a life consultant, and all-around great person. We are all going to miss his bear hugs and firm handshake.
