  • OBITUARY

    Ben Arogeti of Atlanta, Georgia passed away on Tuesday, March 15, 2022, at the age of 89. After several years of declining health, Ben died peacefully in his sleep surrounded by love and his family.

    Ben was born in Atlanta, Georgia on April 5, 1932, to father Morris Arogeti and mother Bolie Arogeti. He was born between his two brothers, Joe and Sam, who preceded him in death. From a young age he was a hard worker with his first job washing dishes in his father’s deli. He later joined the Air Force at age 19. He was stationed in various states around the U.S. as a radar specialist during the Korean War.

    After Ben had served his time in the Air Force, he returned to Atlanta and began working at Rich’s (now known as Macy’s) shoe department as a senior sales manager for 38 years. During those years he met his wife Betty Dudman and got married in 1973. Later in 1973 his first and only son, Mitchell was born. He spent the next few decades of his life with Betty and Mitchell and then eventually he welcomed Mitchell’s wife Debbie into the family. Soon after he had three beautiful grandchildren, Jordan, Bradley, and Lucy, whom he loved immensely.

    At his core, Ben was a gentle, yet strong-willed man who cared deeply for his family and those around him. To know him, was to love him, and he was loved by all. He will be missed by his wife, son, daughter-in-law, grandchildren, and everyone who got the pleasure to know him.

    Ben Arogeti’s funeral will be held at Greenwood Cemetery on March 18, 2022, at 10 a.m. Following the service join us for a Shiva lunch at his son, Mitchell Arogeti’s house.
